Create Bounding Solids

Use the Solids: Bounding tool to create solids from enclosed surface volumes.

If the bounding surfaces are FE geometry, then FE geometry solids are created.
  1. From the Geometry ribbon, click the Solids > Bounding tool.

    Figure 1.
  2. Optional: On the guide bar, click to define additional options.
  3. Select bounding surfaces in the following ways:
    • On the guide bar, click Find to detect bounding surface sets.

      Review each found/selected bounding surface group by clicking and .

    • Left-click on bounding surfaces in the modeling window.
  4. Create bounding solids.
    • Click Create All to create bounding solids from all found/selected surface bounds.
    • Create individual bounding solids by left-clicking on a selected bounding surface.
