Could not retrieve the surface geometry used to create the lapped plate system or part. (Molded Form)

Meaning: Failed in retrieving the surface geometry of the plate system to which the lapped plate system is to be lapped. For example:

  • A non-planar lapped-to surface may not be acceptable.

  • The plate being lapped may be on the To Do List and require updating.

Recovery:

  1. Update the lapped-to plate if it is on the To Do List.

  2. If the lapped-to surface is a hull or a revolved plate, correct the lapped-to plate system to create an acceptable surface for lapping. This may require adding seams and splitting the plate into smaller surfaces.

  3. If the problem persists, report steps taken to your support group.
