Solid Works Thicken & creating solid from enclosed volume in solidworks surfaces

Hello friends,
We all know about the surfaces and how to make surface based model so we have to use a tool (Thicken) in surfaces which provides thickness to surfaces for converting into solid body.
*Thicken can be used for providing thickness to surfaces.
*Thicken also can be used for solid from enclosed surfaces volume.
Both of things are mentioned below.

*1st - provide thickness.

Below attached sample pic have single surface . And also mentioned thicken tool to find it.

When we take thicken tool then we have to give surface on which we apply thickness.
And also thickness side- thickness side can be in 3 ways. (A) side 1    (B) Both side  (C) side 2

=> Side 1-  shown as in Pic, thickness will be in single direction (below side).

=>Side 2- thickness will be in single direction (upper side).

=>Both side- in this case , thickness will be in both directions (lower and upper side).

After apply thickness, It will be as below attached pic.

*2nd- Creating solid from enclosed volume.

we have a enclosed volume by surface (check in visualization tree).

We have a section view to check,its only by surfaces.

Take thicken command for convert solid from enclosed volume in solidworks.
#Select surface first then thickness side will be disabled and create solid option will come. Without selecting enclosed surface we will not able to view create solid option.

Select create solid from enclosed volume.
Then OK

Now we can check it by section view , which is created into solid from enclosed volume in solidworks surface.


  1. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later. All the best CAD modeling

    1. Thanks for your motivational words.
      i will try my best to upload best practices and always connected with you all.

  2. It’s unique to find an expert through whom you would have several trustworthiness. On this planet with the current economic week, none of us realistically cares about presenting others the result in such an subjecttopic. Precisely how fortuitous I’m sure having clearly spotted actually outstanding blog because. It’s individuals like you whom develop serious difference nowadays over the ideas which they explain.
