  • Check and merge duplicate nodes, tolerance 0.05mm – good for most cases.
  • Check for normal consistency – all tooling mesh normal should be consistent.
  • Normal orientation: blank normal up, upper tools normal down, lower tools normal up.
  • Free edge – use ElEdit to check for free edges; Small gaps mostly okay, big overlaps will be a problem.
  • Check zero or very small Jocabian for collapsed elements; This messes up the normal determinations for contact. Use “model check”.
  • Least amount of work needed for tool mesh if LSPP tool mesher is used.
