Problem Geometry and Their Description
The following table lists the diagnostics by type, their description, and category.
Bad Surfaces
These are surfaces with concave domain or singularities. They can produce additional geometry problems during repair. You cannot use such surfaces in regular surface operations.
Bad two-sided edges
The incomplete joining of surfaces or joining surfaces that should not be joined create two-sided edges. They are also created when you import models to Creo Parametric with the Join attribute selected. Such two-sided edges can make geometry repair difficult. You cannot repair these edges with the available automatic tools.
Bad wireframe curves
Bad wireframe curves are the result of gaps that are improperly defined. They make geometry repair difficult and may not repair with Repair and Match. They can produce bad geometric results after repair.
Solid node with open quilts
A body node on the GTS Tree contains quilts that are not closed. As a result, the body node fails to solidify.
Poorly tessellated edges
They are two-sided edges with bad statistics that may look normal.
Small loops of one-sided edges
Small loops are tiny holes in the quilts. They are the result of missing small surfaces or improper stitching of surfaces, especially when the quilt appears closed but cannot be solidified.
Short one-sided edges
Edge is too small when compared to the model size. They may be small segments of one-sided edges.
Bad vertices
Surfaces and edges that meet at the vertex do not coincide at the vertex.
Unsatisfied wireframes
Gaps added to wireframes are not closed. Unsatisfied wireframes are displayed black.
Unsatisfied Tangency
The wireframe edge has an unsatisfied tangency constraint. Wireframes with unsatisfied tangency constraints are indicated by black arrows. They result in smooth geometry when repaired.
Gaps not added to wireframes
Gaps are detected, but are not added to the wireframes.
Almost Tangent Edges
The surface to which a two-sided edge belongs seems to appear tangential to another surface
Small Surfaces
Surfaces with small area and short edges constitute small surfaces. They are not slivers.
Narrow Surfaces
Narrow surfaces have small area and long edges. They may be slivers and may not be required in the model.
