I have problem with the 'Transition' surface command.
I am trying to make a transition surface more or less following the blu wireframe curves (see below, image 1) , but apparently the command works only if the sections strings are not smooth curves or arcs.
When I try I get a strange wireframe, the bridge curves NX proposes for the transitions are not normal to the plane of the face edges (as I presumed they should be), and it is impossible to change the starting point of the sections (see image2 below) to better map the correspondence between points. I am doing something wrong?
I also attach a prt that reproduces the situation.
Thanks for good suggestions!
Solved! Go to Solution.
have a look at my sample. The edges of your bodies you wants to connect are not single ones.
So NX creates the bridge curves tangent to the matching edges with leads to your results.
You can create internal bridge curves inside the transition feature but the resulting surfaces will not be tangent.
I would prefer the fill surface which let you use your bridge curves to control the shape.

attached modified file.
I extracted isoparametric curve with which I trim the surfaces, so I created a 'jointed' edge.
In this way NX works well.
I agree with @Triumphator in using other ways to create this surface not necessary fill surface.
