A new robust offset functionality has been introduced in NX 12 to offset any complex shapes (surfaces, facet, solid bodies, etc) into a convergent body as output. The output geometries produced here can be used in downstream processes such as tool design.
NX 12 offset function performs on sheets, solid, and facets
Eliminates spikes, cuts and steps from the resultant output facets
Users can input offset distance and direction to control the offset
This new function can be accessed from Edit->Facet Body -> Offset and replaces Rought Offset function available in releases prior to NX 12
