show thickness by colour after reflection analysis

Hello,

 

it is my first time writing on this forum so I would like take opportunity and say hallo to all forum Users.

 

I have a problem with Show thickness by color function in CAM module. Normally function works fine but if I use Reflection analysis on part, Show thickness by color starts to act weird. It doesn't show correct colors.

Restart doesn't help. I already checked that on NX11.0.0 and NX10.0.3.5MP9 with various parts.

I have also tried to delete reflection analysis in Edit object view window.

See pictures attached.

 

Probably it is my doing something wrong. 

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm guessing this may be a bug - have you reported it to GTAC?

Re: show thickness by colour after reflection analysis

These 2 commands use different rendering styles, but they should restore the previous style when you exit the command.

If the display looks wrong after exiting reflection analysis, go to the graphics backbround, right mouse click, Rendering Style, Shaded with Edges, and see if that takes care of it. 

Or if the display in Show Thickness by Color does not look right, go to the graphics backbround, right mouse click, Rendering Style, Face Analysis, and see if that fixes it.

Re: show thickness by colour after reflection analysis

I have tried your suggestion but it seems not to work. It still doesn't show IPW when going to show thickness by color.

 

I haven't reported it to GTAC.

 

Do you have any other ideas? 

Re: show thickness by colour after reflection analysis

Have you tried deleting the face analysis view from the part navigator or disabling it.

I think there is a race condition between the two.

I also thought that it might be the case but there is no sign of face analysis in non-timestamp order mode nor in timestamp order. See image attached. 

Re: show thickness by colour after reflection analysis

I started bouncing back and forth between Reflection Analysis and Show Thickness by Color, and I agree something is not being reset in the display. Please log a call with GTAC for this.
