Hi all,

I'm trying to create simple enclosure with one plane over the attached model.

The problem is that the operation fails with " Error- operation would result in non-manifold bodies context: Geometry Engine, while generating feature enclosure3.
"

I guess that it comes from the 3 red lines indicates that they are not connected, but I couldn't connect them no matter what I tried...

Thanks for your help!

The bodies at the base of the wings meet at the bottom of the fuselage at an edge. I guess combined they are not really a "valid" solid. You cant subtract or combine something with zero thickness, which i guess is what this connection is treated as. For example, you cant unite the two wing bodies together.

Thats my theory anyway

Disregard my last post/file.

The main problem is that your fuselage was a surface and the rest are solids. I closed the holes in the front and back with Concept > Surfaces From Edges. Then in your Sew body operation, make sure to select Yes in the "Create solids?" fields.



Then its a simple manner of creating the farfield and subtracting the plane.
