I am trying to show smooth edges of the chamfer edges on angle bar stock items drawn with mechanical routing. When activating smooth edges in drawing view settings, the edges are still not showing.
Is there any other way to show them?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you turn on the smooth edge option after placing the view? If so, be sure to apply the settings to the view itself and not just to the general drafting view settings. If you change the general settings, it will affect newly created views, but it won't update any existing views with the changes (each view has its own individual settings).
There is a Customer Default in Routing for this.
Routing, General, Stock tab, Create Tiled Faces for Stock Bodies.
Turn this on, and each cross section curves of the stock definition gets a separate face. And faces at each segment rcp.
You may not care for that last part, so in NX12.0.2, there is an enviroment variable that will merge the faces along collinear path segments. UGII_ROUTING_NEW_TILED_TOPOLOGY_OPTION=true or 1
Basically this controls options to the Parasolid feature on which stock is based.
(When the CD is off, parasolid makes all tangent faces a single b-surf.)
