Remove geometry from excel


New member
I imported geometry from excel and now I have a beautiful wing profile. I want to trim it but when I try to add a pocket it shows up as a pad since I'm not in the same body as the wing itself. How do I do this a better way?

I suspect your model is okay, but could you please attach a picture of the specification tree.

If you are using Boolean Operations with your multi-body part, just use an Assemble operation to subtract the body with the Pocket.

Sounds like you have a point cloud or a surface geometry imported from excel? Is your wing profile definitely a solid body? Attach screenshots guys, it's always easier than predicting from a glass orb ;)
