Learn how to use the Filled Surface feature.
- [Instructor] As always when working with surfaces…in mesh bodies, we're going to be trying to convert…surfaces and meshes into solid bodies.…So here I've got a cylinder that's open on both ends…and has a hole in the side of it.…I'm going to try and use the Filled Surface feature…to repair these holes and create a solid…out of this geometry.…Now, after activating the Filled Surface feature,…the first thing you're prompted to do…is select your patch boundary.…So this is basically the extent of the hole…you're trying to fill, or the gap you're trying to fill.…
I'm going to start with this hole in the side.…I'm going to select the ring…that follows the extent of the hole.…Down below for Edge settings, we have a few options,…Alternate Face, which basically just flips it.…This controls the curvature,…so right now we've got simply contact.…And if we rotate around at the preview,…we can see when we zoom in here…that it's not quite following the profile of the cylinder.…So I'm going to change from contact to tangent,…
