How to shell any 3D body without errors in nTop
Published on October 13, 2021
Shelling operations in traditional CAD software can be error-prone — especially for more complex geometries. The shell block in nTop converts a body imported from a CAD file to a hollow shell with a wall of wanted thickness. Thanks to nTop’s implicit modeling technology, these operations will never fail.
In this nTop Live, Yuki Okada, Technical Marketing Engineer at nTop, shows you how to import part in nTop, convert it to an implicit body, and shell it to the desired thickness. He will also show you how you can hollow multiple parts simultaneously and infill with a lattice using a custom block.
Watch and learn how to:
- Convert a part to an implicit body and shell it
- Shell multiple parts at the same time
- Shell and infill with a lattice multiple parts using a custom block
