Convert Polyface Meshes and regular Meshes to 3D Solids. Connecting of meshes and commands for exploding the mesh on the line.

General Usage Instructions

MeshExplode

Command to explode Polyface Meshes and regular Meshes on lines. The usual _Explode command does not work with PolyfaceMesh. You can also explode ordinary meshes and 3D-Face objects. You can select and detonate many meshes at once. 
Meshes can be selected before calling the command or after. 
Mesh properties (layer, color ...) are transferred to the lines.
Meshes with more than 10,000 faces are not processed as this can obscure Autodesk® AutoCAD®.

MeshToSolid

The command of converting Polyface Meshes and regular Meshes to 3D-Solids. AutoCAD has a built-in ConvToSolid command, but it rarely works with Meshes and never works with Polyface meshes. My command works more often and faster, but also not always. 
To convert a mesh to a solid, you need the mesh to be completely enclosed within the volume, without holes or breaks.
All Polyface meshes are immediately converted to Mesh, even if they could not be converted to solid.
If many meshes are selected at once and some of them are not closed, then the program will try to combine these meshes into one and convert them into a solid.
You can select and transform multiple meshes at once. In this case, unsuccessful meshes (failed to make solid) will be colored red.
The number of received solids is displayed on the command line.
Meshes with more than 10,000 faces are not processed as this can obscure AutoCAD.
Optimization of the number of solid faces in this program is default disabled. Therefore, rectangular faces will consist of multiple triangles. But it is dangerous to enable optimization - the conversion does not work and fatal errors occur.

Installation/Uninstallation

The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin. You may need to restart the Autodesk product to activate the app/plug-in. To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button. OR, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8.1/10) and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information

There are two more commands for configuring mesh transformations. However, changing these settings can cause problems. Change at your own risk.

  • MeshToSolidOptimize - enable solid optimization. Mesh triangles will be glued into one flat face. But the conversion might not work at all.
  • MeshToSolidMaxFaces - increase the limit on the number of mesh surfaces. The default is 10000. A large change can cause brakes and fatal errors.
