CAD Fixing Tools Overview

Use the CAD fixing tools to repair a range of CAD geometry issues and faults. The tools repair the fault-containing CAD model for analysis by reducing the complexity and removing faults in the model.

  • Apply the CAD fixing tools directly after importing a model.
  • First, attempt the Repair part tool.
  • In a number of cases, it may be necessary to apply several of the CAD fixing tools in succession to obtain a usable model.
For most cases, the default settings of the CAD fixing tools will suffice. When modifying the advanced settings of the CAD fixing tools, a general rule of thumb is to use the smallest tolerance possible, or no tolerance at all, if the option allows.
Note: Specified tolerances are given in the model unit.
