Fixes inconsistencies in 3d geometry supported by ACIS kernel (3D solids, surfaces).
DmAudit is a powerful tool to analyze and automatically fix problems in 3D geometry, which are caused by incorrect operations or if geometry was created in another CAD package and imported using the Import command. It is recommended to run DmAudit whenever 3D geometry is imported if the Import command is not set up to do this automatically. After fixing 3D geometry using DmAudit, operations such as Boolean operations, direct modeling and generating drawing views are possible.
The DMAUDITLEVEL system variable controls whether certain types of errors are reported by DmAudit or not. If set to 1 then modeling kernel dynamic range errors are ignored.
Accessing the Command
command bar: dmaudit
menu bar: Model | Direct Modeling | Audit
toolbar: Direct Modeling | Audit
- Home | Solid Editing | Audit
- Solid | Edit | Audit
- Sheet Metal | Heal | Audit
Quad cursor menu: Model | Audit
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select entities to audit [Entire model] <Entire model>: (Select an entity to include in the operation or press Enter to analyze the entire model.)
Entities in set: 1
Select entities to audit [Entire model] <Entire model>: (Select more entities or press Enter.)
Entities in set: xx
Choose action [Check/Fix/Settings] <Fix>: (Choose an option or press Enter.)
Checks the 3D geometry in the drawing for errors without attempting to fix them. Can be used to check whether a model has problems which prevent processing.
Checks the 3D geometry in the drawing for errors and attempts to fix them.
Select setting [Back/report Panel/copy to File/audit Level/Coincident faces/Nested blocks] <Back>:
DmAuditAll - checks and heals flaws in drawings inserted as external references.
DmSimplify - simplifies the geometry and topology of 3d solid entities.
DmSimplifyAll - simplifies the geometry and topology of solids, within drawings inserted as external references.
DmStitch - converts a set of region and surface entities that bound a watertight area to a 3d solid.
Import - imports the geometry from external files into the current drawing.
