I just startet to test (and play around with...) the results of a laser scan with NX and the Reference Point cloud function. After some tests with different data formats it worked out pretty well.
But as I tried to display the point cloud in an assembly so that the reference point cloud was not part of the display part any more I didn't see anything of the point cloud.
So in short terms:
- If the point cloud is part of the display part - I can see the point cloud.
- If the point cloud is part of any component of an assembly I can't see the point cloud. It doesn't matter if the component is the assemblies work part or not.
I also tried to avoid the usuall traps with layer options and reference sets (the point cloud couldn't be add to a reference set) but none of it worked out.
Does anyone has an idea how to make this work or is this behavior maybe a kind of "hidden feature" which I don't understand?
Solved! Go to Solution.
thank you and yes, I did but the point cloud wasn't displayed.
I also tried to add the point cloud to a new specific RefSet but it wasn't possible to pick the points or the point cloud feature in the part navigator.
Any other ideas or experiences with this topic?
I just received the information that this "problem" was already reported to Siemens in late 2016 and became an ER afterwards. So I have to wait and check the next releases for this enhancement.
You might want to file a "me too" ER on the existing ER.
So they know more than one customer needs this.
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
Ben, thanks for posting the ER. That was the one I had in mind.
I wrote to GTAC to support ER 7895447 and now we have to wait....
