Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Thickening surfaces, part of SOLIDWORKS: Surfacing.
- To use the Thicken command we have a couple requirements.…One is that we have all of our surfaces knitted together…so we have one uniform body.…As you can see here I created what is called…a surface revolve which is already one uniform body.…Then I have the surface plane here at the bottom,…which I then created a ruled surface on,…and then I knitted that together…so I have one uniform surface.…So up here I have my first surface and my second one.…Then I can go up here to Thicken…and I'm going to choose my surface to thicken.…I'm going to choose this one right here.…And then I have the option of which way…I want to thicken it.…
Either I want to thicken it on the outside…or on the inside, and if you zoom in you can see…a preview of what's going to happen here.…So I can switch it from the inside to the outside…or I can go midplane and go both directions.…So in this case here I want to go only to the inside.…Let's try it at a .2 and then click on Ok.…And just that easily it went from a surface body…to a solid body and now this is a regular solid body.…
