  • Divide Curve → non-associative 
  • Divide Face   → associative 
  • Split Body     → associative
Is there an associative alternative to Divide Curve? Thanks!

i don't now for sure that there is any associative divide/split feature for a curve.

 

What i do sometimes is to make a surface of the curve, then split/divide the curve and after that i use the edges of the divide sheets to use further in the design

Hi @ruud_vandenbrand   Thanks for sharing your workaround!

 

Generally I would create a short line at the dividing point on the curve and then select the partial curve with "Stop at Intersection" for other operations.

 

I can't understand why only Divide Curve is designed to be non-associative.

Divide body used to be unassociative; meaning it would remove all parameters from your file, leaving you with 2 dumb bodies. Trim curve used to be unassociative only until recently. I wouldn't be surprised if there was an associative divide curve option in a future release of NX. Have you contacted GTAC to open an enhancement request?

Hi @cowski1  Thanks for your information! Then the development team should be aware of the issue, and there must be certain difficult situation to improve it.

They may be aware of the issue, but filing an IR/ER would make them aware of your NEED for the enhancement.

Starting NX11.0.1, the Trim Curve dialog now has a Trim or Divide section where you can change the Operation to Divide.  Given this, you should be able to figure out how to associatively divide the curve.
