disable convergent modeling?

Legend

I moved to NX12 a week or so ago.

I started a new project, File open Catpart. Then proceed to make a prototype tool.

For this, I use mostly surfaces and somehow I've ended up with convergant facet bodies,   The blue surface is just an extrude, but somehow its a facet body. When I use the selection filter, everything is just sheets and faces no facets

 

Any suggestions?

Hi  @R_Newcomb,

 

When you use any modeling command with Convergent bodies, output is Convergent body.

 

To resolve issue, invoke "Facet Body from Body" command -> Set output to "Convergent" -> Select NX curvy body -> OK. You'll get Convergent body. Now  both tool and target will be of same kind. So there should not be error.

I didn't mean to create a convergent body, I don't have a need for it so I was hoping there was a way to disable the function in defaults.

I cannot even figure out How I made a convergent body from extruding curves in the 1st place, it's not an option

Luckily this was a small easy job, so I was able to recreate it correctly easy enough. I don't want to run into it on a job that I have multiple hours into

Thank you for directing me to that

This seems like a very dangerous new "feature" as convergent bodies do not export via iges or step

Is there a way to search a model for convergent bodies?

 

I don't see a way to shut it off in customer defaults either.

 

Time for an IR.
