Sewing Solids

Sewing Solids

(OP)
Is there a way to sew two solids together other than Insert->Feature Operation->Sew which tells me that I "cannot sew solids into a sheet"?  I started with serveral sheets, applied a thickness to them and now I want to make sure they are one solid.  I can't sew them first because the thickness option doesn't work once they've been sewn together.
Thanks

RE: Sewing Solids

Once they are thickened into solid bodies, try to Unite them rather than sew.

Thanks for the hint looslib.  That works on about half of the surfaces I have.  On the other half, I get error messages reading "Non-Manifold Solid" or "Internal error: Memory access violation" or Unigraphics closes on it's own.  Any ideas?

RE: Sewing Solids

Put your maintenance dollars to work and contact GTAC.

I second Ben's advice. Memory Access Violations are sure signs of either buggy software or corrupted parts.
