Default creating volume by stitching faces
Posts: n/a
When I tried to creat a volume by stitching faces, I end up with following Message and Error,

Message:All the faces are selected twice

Error:Is this a open shell?

Any help appreciated.

Hi Prabhu.B,

There may be two reasons for that. First one is that you do not to select all faces which form a closed region, but I am sure you are carefull about selection. Second one is that your faces are not connected to adjacent faces. Sometimes, two adjecent faces do not share a common edge. They use geometrically similar edges which use different verticies that have same coordinates. You can handle this problem using connetc(verticies, edges and faces -if you have two or more overlaping faces -)command.

Good Luck

I have seen this problem a couple of times when it should have worked normally. I could usually get it to work by re-selecting the faces such that each selected face is connected by an edge to the previously selected face. And tada!, it would suddenly go without a problem.

It worked!! .Got the problem solved by connecting all the edges and faces. Thank you very much for give me the right suggestion.
