Cannot generate solid from compound (revolution of wire)

Posted by Massimiliano Leoni at June 08. 2020

Hello everyone!

I am unable to create a solid from a compound generated via revolution of a wire. As an example, consider the following:

1) create three curves via Polyline interpolation, with expressions

Curve_1
  X(t) = 0
  Y(t) = t
  Z(t) = 0
  Min t = 0
  Max t = 1
  Number of steps = 1

Curve_2
  X(t) = t
  Y(t) = 1
  Z(t) = 0
  Min t = 0
  Max t = 1
  Number of steps = 1

Curve_3
  X(t) = 1
  Y(t) = 1-t
  Z(t) = 0
  Min t = 0
  Max t = 1
  Number of steps = 1

2) select them and Fuse them

3) make a Revolution around OX by 360 degrees (creates a cylinder shell)

4) build a solid with the generated compound: it won't let you select the object

Trying from the TUI fails with error

RuntimeError: MakeSolidShells : Unable to create solid from unclosed shape

 

 

This used to work fine in Salome 7.8.

 

Any hint on why it doesn't work now? How can I solve this?

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi

In v9.4.0 I succeeded to make a solid from the compound using New Entity > Build > Solid with its 2nd option - Make solid from connected set of faces/shells.

This works, thanks for the workaround. Any clue why the other method does not work any more?
