Hello Everyone. I am a new NX user. Most experience is with the CAM side. Looking for a direction to go in for this problem. We are manufacturing small medical components. This requires a nesting fixture. In the pics I have projected the profile of the component and extruded the profile up. The nest is the extracted faces of the component. How can I join these two so it is a solid? I have tried Extrude/Subtract.I know how to create a ribbon surface between the two I can machine to but it is hollow inside and would prefer a solid. Any help is appreciated.
Yes. Thanks. I may have come up with a solution. After projecting the profile. I extracted the faces. Then used the thicken command. After extruding past the shell I used the emboss command to create an extruded post with a nest on top of it. I know there is probably a better way. I appreciate the help. Now I'm trying to put draft aroung the nest to the Blue colored surface.
I very similar with my example part of 'Draft Body' command.
I am not sure, the 'Draft Body' is successful for your case too.
Please try to use 'Draft Body' command [insert > Detail Feature > Draft Body]
- Type : Faces to Draft
- Parting Object : Top face of Base Body (Blue color of your image.)
- Draw Direction : (same with Draw Direction of draft)
- Faces to draft : All faces of target body
- Draft Angle : angle value.
Anyway Good luck.
