SOLIDWORKS: Geometry Analysis

Geometry Analysis   The Geometry Analysis tool is used to check models for potential topology problems with edges and faces. With this tool, you can check for the following categories:   Insignificant Geometry Sharp angles Discontinuous Geometry     Geometry Analysis offers the advantage for checking for more potentially problematic geometry than the Check Entity tool in the core Solidworks, such as tangent discontinuous geometry. You can find the tool on the Tools drop-down menu or on the Command Manager […]
