create volume
I am working on a lung model. The geometry cosists of edges and face only. I need to create a volume out of them. Could anyone suggest me how to do this?

Re: create volume
If you are using Gambit to create your model, you should open the toolpads to create a volumn. then click the sub tool button(the first button from the left in the third row) to choose to create a volumn by stitching the existing faces. Your existing faces should be able to enclose a solid volumn. Otherwise, you have to heal your faces if there are some small gaps existing between faces or create additional faces to make them enclose a solid volumn. Good luck.

Re: create volume
I have tried doing that but I get an error message saying that some of the faces exist on a volume ,while there is no volume present. Please let me know what to do now.

Re: create volume
Try to delete the volume WITHOUT deleting lower topologies and this should leave you with just vertices, edges and faces, then go from there.
