Doing Edge Blend on Convergent Bodies

I imported a STL with two Bodies and try to do an Edge-Blend or Face-Blend but cannot do this. The edge and faces are not selectable. Does someone know if this is possible and, if yes, what I need to do?





Re: Doing Edge Blend on Convergent Bodies


The reason you cannot select faces or edges is because STL bodies are faceted bodies and do not have actual faces or edges - so you're using the wrong types of modeling tools.

I'm sure someone else with more experience/knowledge about faceted/Convergent modeling might chime in, but in the meantime I'd suggest reading the Help Docs for what you can and cannot do with faceted and Convergent models in NX.

In NX 12 you can use the command called Create Transition to add "edge" treatments to a Convergent body. As state above there are no real edges on the part it is only facets.
