Error while creating mesh

Error:Sheet bodies detected.
The model contains sheet bodies (surface data) only. The meshing algorithm requires at least one solid region. Try to solidify all surface parts.
this is the error that appeared while creating the mesh.

Hi @hsakarwala and sorry for the small delay,

This question has been covered quite extensively in the forum and it simply tells you to work with solids and not sheet parts. @power_users, could you guide our user here and give him some tips on what he can optimise? :slight_smile:

Hi @hsakarwala,

the model is not clean enough for meshing, the tube intersections are not optimal:

etc.

Try to fix these faulty connections so that the model consists of only one, solid body. Then it should work! :slight_smile:

Hi @hsakarwala,

I agree with @jhorv_th. It may be a good idea to correct your CAD model before running the simulation. If you want to run a simulation just to see how it works, you can access the geometry converted to a solid body here.

Best,

Paulo
