Fast and automated defeaturing functions are removing rounds, chamfers, holes, letters and internal geometry within seconds. Robust direct modeling functions and an integrated CAD module allow the manipulation and generation of geometry without going back to a CAD system.
In addition mature clean-up functions resolve quality problems such as gaps and overlapping elements on CAD models in a fast, easy-to-use and highly automated way.
The automatic metaface function merges tiny faces and the basis surfaces at the push of a button. The elimination of problematic minielents reduces the total number of faces by approximately 40-70%. For a mximal automation the process can be controled by several parametersto limit the complexity of the resulting surfaces.

This tool set creates midfaces from solid bodies. It automatically trims and connects resulting midfaces to achieve a sheet body. The fully or semi-automated process efficiently reduces the time and effort to create midface models.
The wall thickness of the original solid can be calculated, attached to the midface model and saved in the specific Nastran format.
