Booleans and Defeaturing
A simple case to demonstrate primitives, Booleans, and how topology management can be used in
conjuction with surface coarsening to remove features from a model. A tutorial video of this case is
available on the videos page.
A box and two cylinders created with DGK.
After Boolean add and subtract.
Graded refinement applied to the upper surface
of the box.
Merging surfaces with deletion of the feature
curves and coarsening removes the indented
cylindrical surface from the body.
Additional surface merging and coarsening. The
circular curve is then split into four curves by
creating topology vertices (all vertices
Additional coarsening with a large size applied.
The cylinder curves are allowed to be coarsened
while the vertices are protected.

DGK, was selected as
