Deleting Unconnected Geometry

Valued Contributor

Sometimes after an operation such as an extrude/ subtract, there will be unconnected geometry. If it is moused over it and other geometry will highlight as if it is all connected; it behaves as a single part. 

 

The vertical airfoil in the graphic below came about through such an operation. I do know how to prevent it from happening. But I am wondering if there is a way to easily remove such geometry after it is produced. "Delete Face" does not ever seem to work. It would make modeling very convenient if it did in such a case.

 

Thanks

Hi @anthropisces ,

 

Did you try "Delete Body" command? It can delete both Sheet or Solid Body.

@anthropisces Why are you still posting in student forum? You are using commercial version so you should post to NX Design Forum.

 

@SamadhanGaikwad Would you please move the respective posts.

If you properly use extrude limits you should not be getting extra volumes. For complex intersections, use None for the Boolean. Use the Unite command Select Regions options to select the regions to keep or to delete.

You should not be deleting "extra" geometry. This will make a sloppy model history that is hard to edit

The reason you see everything highlight is that NX highlights the feature, not the body upon rollover.
And since it is a feature that "owns" both bodies, you need to use the "delete body-feature" to be able to delete a part of this feature.
"Regular delete" will delete the entire feature.
