Make a solid body without trimming a surfaces

Pioneer

Hello to all,

As a new to NX, I have some questions to make some things clear to myself.

Please take a look at the attached video. Is it possible to close solid body by surfaces which are not previously trimmed or created by "fill" option or some other option using cylinder edges (cirlcles)?

I want to know is it possible to make solid body by surfaces when all of the selected surfaces (or planes) close an volume?

(view in My Videos)

Regards,

Danijel

The function (NX11) is called "Combine", under Insert/Combine, menu.

In your example you just need to select the 3 surfaces and ask for "Find a Volume".

Or, you can select the surfaces in a way NX can discover a solid with Keep/Remove flag.

 

if you need I can create a video, but I think the function is self-explaining.

 

Best,
