Default creating a face
Posts: n/a
Hi, I tried to create a face by joining the existing wireframe, but I got error saying "The vertices and edges must be coplanar", how do I get around this?

Also, I tried to stitch faces to form a volume, but there's a warning that says " An edge on the volume resulting from the face stitch changes convexity. Set the GEOMETRY_VOLUME_SPLIT_AT_CVXTY_PTS_IN_FACE_STITCH default before the face stitch operation may be recommended". I'm lost. Can anyone help me?

Thanks alot

If you create surFACE it must be plain. As the top of quiet water. "The vertices and edges must be coplanar" means something is higher or lower than other parts.

You create points after it you create edge-lines between points after you can create face from wireframe-lines. You must select the lines in clockwise or back-clockwise order during the selection the wireframe lines else you get trouble with simulation.
