sewing sheets to solid bodies

HI there,

I am a fairly new NX user. I have been using NX10 for the past year. I just updated to NX11 upon release. I mainly use imported customer STP. or IGES. files for manufacturing. These customer files come in as sheet bodies.  In NX10, I mainly worked in history free mode. When sewing sheets to create solid bodies, if there there were gaps, untrimmed surfaces, surfaces that weren't tangent, etc. , these gaps would be highlighted.

In NX11, now when sewing, these gaps are not highlighted making it very difficult to fix the problem areas and create a solid body.

Is this is a default setting that needs to be checked or unchecked? Or is it a symptom of working in history mode?

 

Thanks for the Help,

Hi @dbfoster24,

The behavior you have reported is likely the same as the issue reported by @yeqiong here:

I was also able to reproduce the problem in NX11.
@Paul_Bevan is looking into this.

You could use examine geometry and look at sheet boundaries, it will show edges that are not right

Brian1234,

 

Yes, this works but is a much longer process when dealing with a large amount of sheet bodies.

 

Thanks

I've submitted an internal problem report (PR) and development are looking at it.

I just received confirmation that this will be fixed in NX11.0.0 MP1 (available towards the end of September) and NX11.0.1.
