I am doing some reverse engineering using NX11 and "something weird" beyond my knowledge is happening.
The sequence I did was as following:
1) create new part model, e.g. "Model1"
2) import STL
3) fit one plane to STL
4) create offset datum plane from the plane created in step 3
5) save and close model
6) create new assembly, e.g. "Assy1"
7) load part file that was created in step 5
The issue is, that in the assembly I can see the surface created in step 3, but not the plane created in step 4. When I double click "Model1" and make it work part, the plane becomes visible and usable. However, when I return to parent, i.e "Assy1", the plane goes missing again. Of course, I tried hiding/unhiding things, but the plane is not there in the "hidden world" as well.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,

Ganesh, thanks for the tip, it worked like charm! Since I haven't been using reference sets I guess it would have been the last place to look for the error.
In case another has the same error, there is one more good post to read in this community about how to have the parts loaded properly already while opening the assembly.
Once again, hat tip and thanks for the quick reply!
