I'd like to display some quick 3D graphics like cylinders, retangular planes, etc. without the overhead of creating parasolid geometry.
Going though the NXOpen documentation, I see there are functions for displaying lines, arcs, splines and so on but didn't see anyway to do more advanced geometry.
No, thats still a line. I want a volume (or at least something like a face).
Facet bodies might work but even they are kind of overkill for what I want.
We have ...
or their SNAP equivalents:
Obviously you can draw any wire-frame thing you like by using lines or polylines.
If you want shaded display, then one option is
though this is only allowed in the display callback of a UDO.
Another option, as you say, is to create a facetted body.
