Free Edges and Non Manifold Edges Results in Midplane Model.

Hi!

 

I have a problem meshing a model of Basket in Midplane. The following images show the results of Free Edges and Non-Manifold Edges, throw by the diagnostic tool of the program. I can´t understand this results. What steps should I take if these results are a problem?. The piece have a max thickness of 5 mm, localized in the ribs.

 

I know that, for midplane, Free Edges and Non-Manifold Edges can be different of 0.

 

Any advice is welcome and appreciated.

 

Thanks for Help!

You didn't do anything wrong. It's a trouble of Midplane.

The only way is to correct manually the mesh errors.

As your part is symetric, you can work on a quarter and copy it once the corrections done.
