sketching on a convergent body?

Genius

Is it possible to make sketches on a convergent body and then create features (subtractions, extrusions, etc) from those sketches?

 

Or is convergent modeling still limited to boolean operations?

 

Amy's Realize Shape tutorial is a good work around

You can try these new commands in NX 12 for offseting a facetted body.

Well you can create a Curve on Surface or Fit Curve Spline. They would create 3D curves on the convergent body to use in other feature commands.

If you want an actual planar Sketch features then first color the convergent facets using Detect Primitive or Paint Facet Body, then do a Fit Surface Plane using Color Coded Region. Then you have a plane to build a Sketch on.

Here is a list of some commands that should work on a convergent body

thanks for the response, are these convergent body commands available in NX11 or only NX12

Most are in NX 11.0.1 On the ribbon bar activate the Reverse Engineering tab
