PZFlex _ step file can not be inserted properly Answered


I have a skull model in .step file format, and it's a form of solid(not surface), but when I imported it in PZFlex, the solid does not count as a model but 5000 parts. 

I've already read about importing complex model in PZFlex (https://support.onscale.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360006310378-PZFlex-can-not-insert-complex-geometry-parts ),, 

is it the same problem with the post? Is there any way to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Dabin,

    The CAD file seems to be exported as a meshed object. The surface looks like a tetrahedral mesh has been applied so the software looks to be reading this as 5000 unique parts.

    I am not sure how you generated the CAD file but you will need to figure out how to import as a single volume to stop the system reading it as 5000 parts.

    We no longer support PZFlex, so if there are issues with the software, we won't be able to fix this.

    Best regards,
