Combining Parts into one single part in NX 10

Creator
Creator

Hey guys,

 

using NX 10 I've been trying to figure out how to use the Unite Command to combine a couple of parts into one single part in my Assembly, but for whatever reason when I want to "Select Body", I can't click on any of my parts to combine them. 

 

I also can't find a solution on the other forums, any ideas??

I guess that your solid bodies are in separate parts.

Unite works with the selection scope: "Within Work Part Only"

Bodies to be united needs to be in the same part.

Use wave link to promote the bodies to the assembly level and that unite them there.
Here is it possible to use the associative on or off. This will keep or remove the direct update link to the original body/part. (see settings in the wave geometry linker dialog)
Now all the bodies are in different part files.

I was able to do this, but I'm curious about what this actually does. From what I've read, using Unite allows me to literally connect the parts to a seemless connection. I'm using this to analyze my new assembly as one single part, but it isn't actually making that connection like I want it to. 

 

I want to parts that I originally have as an assembly to be one single  seemless part that can be analyzed with one fixed constraint and its forces.

I've found a solution that works!

 

I tried lots of things while focusing on the "Unite" approach. The approach is outlined by JohnRBaker in this link:
