can I use a file type STL model Stock in NX 8 or 9?
if you can use an STL file which are the steps?
thank you very much!!!
I'm sorry, I did not make myself clear
I attached a picture may be clearer
I'm still not quite sure what you're asking for. The picture I took was how to select a faceted body for your stock definition. Are you asking how to put a STL into the manufacturing assembly?
Looking from a process point of view, i might ask you: Where is this STL file coming from?
In NX8 it is possible to use "IPW - In Process Workpiece" as a Blank Selection.
This allows you to select the "rest material" from a previous NX CAM Setup.
It does not matter if that is a setup in another part or the same part.
If your Blank (STL) is coming from another source than NX you need to open/import the STL file, add it to the assembly and follow the selection that CAM has given.
