Solidify features in Creo are typically used to add, remove, or replace solid material in your designs. Solidify features use predetermined surface features or quilt geometry and convert them into solid geometry. The quilt geometry provides you with greater flexibility within your design, and the Solidify feature enables you to transform that geometry to meet your design needs.
Typically, Solidify features are used to create complex geometry that would be more difficult, if not impossible, to create using regular solid features.Designing Solidify features requires you to:
- Select a surface feature or quilt as a reference
- Determine how you want to use the reference geometry: add solid material, remove solid material, or patch a surface
- Define the material direction for the geometry
