I am a fresh (newbie) user of blender on suse linux platform.
I would like to use it as a cad cleanup software and maybe to mesh the resulting surface. I have noticed that blender is able to read, among other formats, iges files, but I am curious on its possibilities of cleaning the newly imported geometry. How does it handle duplicate vertices, lines or faces?
Is there a concept of solid/volume that blender knows about it?
Later on I would like to know about its capabilities for surface meshing (or even volume meshing if it is possible).
