I am trying to create the geometry of an aerofoil with coods. after creating edges to all the vertices, went to the create a face from wireframe. i selected all the edges and i click apply it says -

"ERROR: ACIS error 18016: A face with null geometry created. ERROR: Cannot ceate ACIS frame from wireframe. Turn on the toggle to create planar tolerant face if such a face is required."

Y isnt it creatin a face? what is a planar tolerant face?

lookin forward to an answer at the earliest. thank you, haridas.

dont subtract the aerofoil face with the domain face instead do split operation instead of that and delete the aerofoil face and also check all the edges r conected..this would work hari. hope it helps all the best regards hari
