Share Geometry on Save


Does anyone know what this Save Option actually does?  The Help documentation states the following:


Save Option Dialog Box


How is the size reduced?

The help documentation states:

"Reduces the size of your NX part file when it contains multiple copies of bodies created by the Extract Geometry command."


How is the size reduced?

In a part than has copies of a body (as the result of the Extract Geometry command) only a single copy of the body is saved.  In the case of a simple body, such as a sphere, there is not much of a saving.  However, when more complicated B surfaces are copied there can be a significant saving.


Does that help?
