Hi,

 

does anybody know of some help on the icons in NX9.0 Advanced simulation application?

For exemple, I would lilke to know the meaning of the FEM object icon pictured below.

 

Is there a complete set of NX9.0 icons, listed by applications?

 

 

best regards,

Hi Pavel, thank you for your advice.

 

I just would like to know where in NX9.0 Help files I could find the meaning Advanced Simulation icons.

 

I don't intend to buy other documentations.

 

best regards,

Cyril

This is the NX 10 help but it would be the same in the NX 9 help. This gives you an indication of the icons in the Simulation Navigator.

Hi Ganesh,

 

thank you for your input.

 

Unfortunately the icon I get for my solution (please check at the top of this discussion) is not in the NX help you provided. I would like to have access to the complete NX icons list.

 

I hope SIEMENS provides a complete list soon.

 

best regards,

Cyril

Hi cyril,

I am really not sure about that because I am using NX10 already and do not remember how the symbol looked earlier versions, but maybe it is indicating that the FEM file needs to be updated.

Cyril, 

 

I did some digging around and it looks like this one slipped through the cracks. 

 

Here is the intent/description of what the icon signifies:

 

In NX 9 as part of the morphing project, we introduced a new icon for the FEM in the navigator that shows a broken lock. It is meant to indicate that the model has partial geometry association. That is, some meshes have partial associativity, some geometric entities have partial associativity, or both. This can happen when morphing is used to build associations, or update originally geometry based meshes where geometry has changed. It's acceptable behavior, but one we felt users should be aware of.

 

The problem is that as you have demonstrated there is no user feedback. This is something that will be addressed in future releases and additionally will be described in NX 11 help. 

 

Thank you for bringing up this issue and I apologize for the lack of clarity. I hope this helps!

Hi Ganesh,

great, this is the answer I was waiting for.

My mesh has it's thickness source from midsurface, I suppose the partial geometry association comes from this fact.

thanks a lot,

Cyril

Hi Georg,

Yes, this is it, and I wanted confimation from SIEMENS. Ganesh gave us the official answer!

Thank you,

Cyril, 

 

Here's further update, actually the NX Documentation team was in error, there is information on this in NX Help

 

It can be found under: 

 

Home > CAE > Advanced Simulation > Meshing >  Mesh Morphing  in NX9 help. 

 

And here is a screenshot:
