Don’t be a Degenerate, Boundary Surface is for Four Sided Surfaces

Posted by & filed under Surfacing.

The surface above represents a degenerate surface, which “occurs when one or more sides of the parametric quadrilateral surface used for meshing collapse to a singularity.” Source: Ansys Workbench In SolidWorks this happens when trying to apply a boundary surface to a boundary that is not four sided. The result is that SolidWorks forces the curvature into the… Read more »
