One of the most efficient methods to resolve an error in your geometry is to rebuild or repair that section of your model. The SOLIDWORKS Check Entity tool can help you find failed geometry and investigate detailed geometry information. This is a valuable tool to use when Import Diagnostics is unable to repair geometry.
In this video blog, learn how to use the Check tool to reveal failed geometry, give you information needed to rebuild new geometry and finally confirm there are no failed faces or invalid geometry in your model.
