Having trouble making this model a solid

Not sure why I can’t make this model a solid. Seems to be something about the edge, but I just can’t figure out what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Well this seems to be a clue, but I’m still not smart enough to figure out the answer haha.

When I try to push pull the sides of my model the one section will only go in one direction. Unlike the other sides the seem to push pull any direction. So it seems as if it’s hitting something when I’m trying to push/pull it, but I can’t see what.

Look at this. Does it work for you?cover v2.skp (1.1 MB) It’s a solid but there’s no recess in the bottom.

The reason it isn’t solid is because the faces have no thickness.

Check your PMs. I sent one.

And…fixed. It was good to talk with you.

Hi,

It was great talking with you too. I really appreciate you taking the time. I feel I learned a lot.

Think I found the two plugin you mentioned. Are these the correct ones?

Thanks!

Those are them. Don’t forget to get LibFredo6, too. I should have mentioned that.

Very good thread! May I ask what the model is?

I believe it is a fridge hinge cover.

Hi Rick

It is a model of a refrigerator hinge cover.
It sits on the top of a refrigerator to cover the freezer door hinge.
Just something I was doing for practice.

Got them all installed and played with them for a couple hours last night, :slight_smile:
