Hi. I'm trying to do a cfd simulation of the DrivAer model. But the outer body and underbody are modelled as a surface and since it's an iges file, I'm unable to convert it into a solid body in CAD . Now I'm unable to use boolean operation in Design Modeler to create a computational domain for cfd. Please help me convert these surface bodies to solids

You can try to combine the surfaces with space claim fix tab (if I'm not mistaken for the name)

Thank you! I was able to convert the surface bodies to solid by using the stitch, combine and other options under the "repair" tab in ANSYS Spaceclaim.
