"The resultant ACIS solid is degenerated..."

Hi, I know there have already been topics on this error, but what I have tried still doesn't work. I am trying to add a rotated box to a TC surface in TC Deluxe 20, and I have extended the box further into the surface so it does not share common sides, yet the error still persists. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Brent

Really can't diagnose the problem without the drawing. Please post the .tcw file.

Well, after changing all the dimension sizes on my pevious issue, I was able to add them. However, I am having the same issue again combining a box to the TC surface, as well as another TC surface to it.

I sure hope you made a backup copy of this drawing, 'cuz it looks as if your big, complex object is itself corrupt. While fiddling with the drawing, I found that if I 3D-Slice that object, the "Degenerated" message appears when I try to add the pieces  back together again.

That's definitely not something I want to hear... those are literally the last parts of the drawing I need to add to be finished with this. Will it cause problems beyond adding and subtracting, or can I just leave it how it is and have it built?

Turns out I was able to repair the part by opening in Pro, converting to Solid, applying SAT Healing, reconverting to TC Surface. Seems to work OK now in Deluxe. Modified file is attached herewith. Please let me know how you make out with it.

...BTW, this is yet another illustration of why I keep saying that almost any TCad Pro version is superior to even the latest Deluxe.

I still cannot add the parts, but I really appreciate you trying to help. So do you think I can just leave it alone and get the part built without those additions? Or would the part corruption cause other issues?
Thanks again,
Brent

I take that back, somehow I accidentally opened the wrong project. Your solution worked great. Thank you very much

I'm intrigued, 'cos I thought Deluxe didn't have ACIS kernel, but it gives that error message?  I might've gotten the wrong end of the stick, but TC Mac has a mid-level version that has ACIS that's less exxy than Pro, that PC TCers miss out on.  It does STEP and IGES so it can exchange nurbs with other apps.  Geomagic/Alibre calls non-STEP, non-IGES "personal edition", and that's how I've always thought of Deluxe.
