Multiple face corruption on Sheet metal part ?

  • How to remove they all appear inside bends ? (Caused by someone's poor Delmia Catia conversion to NX 9 )
  1. If I try to "Optimize Face" it causes that a New Flat-Pattern can't be made "Body not found or Body can't be created... or similar" comes as an error. Also "edges need to be ripped" warnings.
  2. If I try to "Normal Cutout" -> Error. Failed to create preview verify input. I try midplane,thickness, through all, symmetric depth=both sides..
  3. "Modeling"-> extrusion is a very coarse way to hack it but sometimes it gets results sometimes not.

Yes. I created "Tabs" all over the part and it worked.

- But when I try to save:  "attempt to save bad pointer, save aborted" ?

NX 9 behaves very badly during christmas :-(

As a workaround when you first get the imported solid ...just extract the inner or outer surface of the solid body and give it a sheet thickness (using Thicken). Then try using convert to sheet metal ...sorry i have no clue what is wrong with the model without taking a sneak peek at it but this might be an option you can definitely try.

You could try some of the synchronous commands like "delete face" and "replace face"

(replace the little face with the bigger face)
