I am trying to solve a school task.
The model in our exercise is a vacuum gripper for a robot. It consists mainly of a vacuum-pipe system which will hold a number of rubber-suction-cups.
I want to apply a pressure (from the vacuum system) to the internal surfaces of the vacuum-pipe system.
How can I select “through” the model in order to select the internal surface, I can't find such a function.
I have used the command “Partition” in order to separate the inner surface, see picture below, I can then hide the other outer part of the pipe and apply pressure to the inner surface part.
(Here , I had to select each and every surface part separately, isn't there a possibility to apply pressure to a set of surfaces at the same time?)
When I then use a Boolean command to Combine the Outer- and inner surface again the defined pressureload disappears!
So, how can I select and apply a pressure to the inner surface of the vacuum-pipe system?
