For reference, I am using NX 10.0.3.5.
I'm in the process of simplifying an idealized part. The part consists of a swept cross-section which I would like to model with finite element beams (i.e., 1D elements). I've created a curve which corresponds to the centerline of the swept geometry; however, I can't figure out how to promote the curve so that I can mesh it in the .fem file; when I switch from the idealized part to the .fem, the curve is not visable. In the Advanced Simulation documentation (https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/10
Three idealized files for one master part. From left to right: Split into sweepable bodies, a midsurface for shell meshing, and with added points and curves for beam meshing.
Thanks for the help.
