Posts: n/a
Hello, i am working in an aerodynamic modification on a car part, however the drawing of the part i have is a surface information and it defines an irregular surface actually it is a scanned and iported concave face. And for the cfd analysis i should carry, the part should bu turned into a closed solid.

can anybody suggest a software or a method to close this surface or turn it into a solid.
