Open (Import) IGES and work with Boolean operations on it

Hello to all,

I have opened and iges (assembly) in NX. After that I have created some extrusion feature to cut imported iges but it's not possible. So I have tried to make extrusion as a new solid and to make boolean subtract operation where base will be imported model and tool will be created extrusion solid. I am not able to select imported model while operation is active.

What is the best way to import IGES geometry in NX and use it in modeling?

 

Best regards,

Danijel

Use 'Wave Geometry Linker' to extract the bodies of imported assembly components(IGES), sew the sheets of indivdual components and perform the boolean operation.

Promotes a body from a loaded assembly component to the level of the assembly.

Than you can perform any Boolean operation on it,like subract ,extrusion anythink.
Insert - Associative copy - Promote body
