Re: Create Surface Constraints

I figured how to do it. I needed to constraint the a surface with area of 2 times bigger than thru holes without adding any feature to it (adding or removing material) as you can see in the picture. The solution is to create an extrude as surface style and not solid. it is important to consider end cap for feature and the surface of that cap be flush with the surface of the flange. if somebody needs to more info let me know so I can post explain better with some screen shots.

Re: Create Surface Constraints

Are you asking for the flange thickness to be two times the diameter of your 12 holes?

Thanks, Dale

Re: Create Surface Constraints

Hello Camron,

thanks for getting back to the thread after solving the problem!

I believe I understand:

  • You needed a specific reference, but didn't want to add/remove material.
  • And you solved it by adding a surface feature instead of a solid feature

I am specifying your own post as Correct answer, to mark this thread as "Answered"
