In this blog, I will describe how to create an internal volume of a part using the delete face command as an alternative to the intersect command. An alternate method is sometimes needed in cases where the intersect method fails and there may not be time to troubleshoot, so a manual method is needed. Initially it may be difficult to understand why deleting faces can help create an internal volume, but it does one key thing for us: it separates […]

This is a simple method for finding the internal volume of complex parts, the first step is to cap all inlets and outlets that lead to the internal volume: If your various inlets and outlets are planar, you can use the ‘planar surface’ command to cap that opening. There can be multiple openings assigned to a single ‘planar surface’ command. Additionally, if you […]
