A sketch based closed solid resulting from covering the contents of a sketch. The sketch can contain multiple surfaces. Typically used for 2D simulations or to define zero thickness metal or profiles for sweeps.


Label – A unique name that identifies the solid. (ISolid/Label)

Coordinate System – The coordinate system in which the solid is defined. Defaults to working coordinate system at time of creation. (ISolid/CoordinateSystem)

Material – Chosen material for the solid. (ISolid/Material)

Include in Simulation – Indicates if the solid is included in simulations.  If False, the solid is also not shown in the view. (ISolid/Include)

Mesh Control Only - Indicates if the solid is used as a tool to control meshing. If True, the portion of the solid that does not overlap the other normal solid is thrown away prior to simulation. Additionally, the material of such a solid is irrelevant so the material parameter is hidden. (ISolid/MeshControlOnly)

Command Details

Creation immediately takes you into the sketch mode to add content.



Other Notes

You can switch between a sketched Sheet (2D), extrusion, and revolution by right-clicking the solid in the Browser and choosing Convert To XXX from the context menu. This makes transitioning from 2D to 3D easier.

Example Creation Script

SweptSolid_1 = Geometry_1.TwoD("TwoD_1", "World", "XY", "0", "Air")
