Converting to surfaces

When creating surfaces from solid what causes some of the surfaces to disappear, is that something I can change to keep it from happening or does it have something to do with the way the part was designed?

Terry,

If you analyze the original solid and use "Check Solid" are there any faults/problems listed (other than tolerant edges)?

Pete

I'll go back and check that.

Doing check solid it only showed the edge tolerances. I also tried the other of restarting after converting and they are just gone no where to be found, scratching my head.

Terry,

Do you use the option to place 'untrimmed surfaces' on a level (default = 1000) ? That would save the untrimmed versions of any faces that couldn't convert.

Any chance you could send me the file including the solid you're trying to convert?

Pete

where can I send it
