Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

Does anyone know if there's a way to contribute sheets to an existing solid (to make a new, bigger solid)?  I've already created a sewn feature and want to add some more bulk to it.  I've tried creating two sewn features and uniting them, but this seems to require quite a bit of computational overhead.  I'm looking for a quicker, cleaner solution.  

RE: Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

I think I just answered my own question: sew two solids on their common faces and you get one solid.

RE: Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

Have you tried to patch the surface to the existing solid? Note that the ends of the surface must match the solid

RE: Adding Sheets to Existing Solid

The patch worked, also. Using the patch instead of sewing solids, I didn't have to create extra surfaces (to enclose the second set of sheets), which means it regenerates quicker.  Thanks!
