Your surface model is not a closed volume. Any surface quilt you want to solidify must be able to "hold water", but like a balloon, not a simple cup, if that makes sense. Look for a yellow edge, and do eomething to fix it. Can't tell you what since I don't have the model in front of me. Good luck!

my surfaces are water tight. i pulled the quilt into mastercam and it solidifies at .0005". mastercam can't ever solidify anything so it must be tight. i think there may be a bad surface or something but i have never had that error before that is why i was asking. i thought maybe someone had seen it before and knew what the problem was. thanks for the help. i am still working on it and struggling. i am actually trying to use this quilt to cut away a hollowed out area in a valve body. not sure if that matters that i am not adding a piece or trying to make a stand alone solid. thanks again

Try changing your relative accuracy to .0005 or something smaller than the default .0012. Sometimes that helps.

thanks for the reply. i'll give that a try.

Hi there if i dont see model, i can't answer but try this way, Copy the surfaces one after another, not in a single click then merge those when u got closed quilt, u can go for solidify as usual Venu
