non-manifold problem
I imported a ready big geometry to the designmodeler so that I can edit it as I want.
One of the things that I need to do is to delete a tube that consists of many volumes connected together and create another tube.
However, after deleting it, and trying to extrude a sketch, the command can't be executed due to non-manifold bodies.
Can anyone explains to me what I need to do???

Well I don't think my problem needs any picture
I have a geometry that was created using GAMBIT
And im using designmodeler software to modify this model
However, any attemp to add any materials anywhere (even in regions away from the model) gives this error (non-manifold bodies)
Any one knows how solve this problem??
