Shelling (and Thicken) failures are a common issue for virtually all CAD systems. Power Shell introduces new patent pending technology that finally addresses this important issue. Power Shell and Power Thicken use a new process for dealing with the complex Shelling and Offsetting failing cases typically encountered in CAD systems.
Power Shell & Power Thicken complement the SolidWorks Shell / Thicken tools. When Shell & Thicken fail, Power Shell & Power Thicken prevail. Power Shell and Power Thicken are intended to be used in the cases that fail the SolidWorks Shell / Thicken commands. When the SolidWorks Shell (or Thicken) command fails, you should use Power Shell to get the job done (instead of wasting time trying to modify your design so that the Shell command might work).
