Problem with stitching volume
1 Attachment(s)
Hi, I am using Gambit as a preprocessor tool. I am trying to stitch the faces for a KVLCC2 ship hull to form a volume but i kept encountering this problem "ERROR: cannot create ACIS body. Is this an open shell?". I have turned on shaded mode and all the faces are created. I have attached the screengrab as well.

Are there any possible reasons/solutions to this problem?

Thank you.

The problem could be with the double face, that can be seen on your print screen. Try to delete the double face.
I had that problem a few days ago and it gave me good result.
If you do not know which face is double, you should turn on button faces and inside button info.

Many thanks for the quick reply! Definitely saved me a lot of time agonizing over this problem! It works!
