Filled Surface

The Filled Surface feature constructs a surface patch with any number of sides, within a boundary defined by existing model edges, sketches, or curves, including composite curves.

You can use this feature to construct a surface to fill a gap in a model. You can use the Filled Surface tool in these cases:
  • Correct a part that does not import correctly into SOLIDWORKS (where there are missing faces).
  • Fill the holes in a part used for core and cavity molding.
  • Construct a surface for industrial design applications.
  • Create a solid. Include features as separate entities, or merge those features. To create solids from surfaces, use a combination of the Knit Surface and Thicken tools. For more information about surfaces, see SOLIDWORKS Tutorials: Surfaces by clicking > Tutorials.

To create a filled surface, click Filled Surface on the Surfaces toolbar, or click Insert > Surface > Fill, set the PropertyManager options, and click OK .
