how to embed face into solid in NX

I want to run simple flow simulation where sheet body is inside fluid volume and works like obstacle. In Femap is command Solid-Embed and the result is NonManifold solid. The goal is that I can create 2D mesh and 3D mesh matches this 2D (something like seed mesh). I want to achieve this in Simcenter (NX) but I don't know how, even if it is possible.

Split Body function requires that immersed sheet is "fixed" by creation of additional faces to enlarge the sheet body reaching out of the solid. This seems very laborous and do believe there is some tricky function of NX.

Any hint would be very welcome.
