cutting a 3d solid volume acts incorrectly

ardalan nejat's picture

Dear All,

I am trying to cut a 3d solid shaped like a wedge by a cylinder(put a hole in it) and have the remaining wedge as a 3d solid so that I can export in ABAQUS using brepiges command in DRAW. However I got two problems:

1- cutting the 3d wedge by the cylinder result me some SURFACEs which is not satisfactory for my simulation. I want a single 3d solid wedge with hole's place extracted out.

2- using brepiges command to produce the step file, results in ambiguous shape when I import in ABAQUS. Though, I got the shape correctly in the DRAW viewer. (attached images)

here is the complete set of code:

polyline 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0
polyline pl 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 0 0 0
