Make Manifold

Create a manifold solid from non-manifold objects (including trimeshes) by deleting excess faces, edges, and vertices.

This is a "smart" intersect tool that automatically deletes excess faces, edges, and vertices. An object is defined as manifold when its edges are shared by not more than two surfaces.

  1. On the ribbon, click the Modify tab.
  2. Click the Make Manifold icon.

  3. Click the surfaces.
    Note: The surfaces must be intersecting and define a closed volume. Trimeshes are supported.
  4. Right-click and mouse through the check mark to exit, or double-right-click.
