Error shelling model? Answered

Hi, when trying to shell the model I'm getting the following error:

Error: The operation would cause a large topology change.

Try adjusting the values or changing the input geometry.

Any ideas what wrong?

Mostly likely, you're trying to shell a body with a thickness that would effectively result in geometry that's impossible to resolve- overlapping surfaces, etc. Try making the wall very thin (like .05" or .1mm) and increasing the value from there by small increments.
