To detect and remove duplicates

To detect and remove duplicate model objects, use the following procedure.

  1. On the Model ribbon tab, select the Model Integrity Check tool in the Edit group.

    The Model Integrity Check dialog opens.
  2. Type a value for the Tolerance. This value is used for determining if two nodes are close enough to be treated as a single node. For members and surfaces, duplicates are determined when end or vertex nodes, respectively, are all determined to be within this value.
  3. Check the Dupcliate option for the model objects as necessary:
    • Nodes
    • Members
    • Surfaces
  4. Select the action to take with detected duplicates:
    To… Click…
    select the duplicate objects in the model Select
    delete duplicates from the model Delete
    The program will delete any model objects which have the same connectivity. Nodes that are closer than the tolerance value are replaced with a single node and reconnected to other model objects.
