UF_MODL_trace_a_ray Works on FACET Body ?

Hello, Will ray (by using UF_MODL_trace_a_ray) hit on Facet Body, I have a STL surface and I wanted to find a hit point on it? Will the API supports such Facet Body? Thanks in advance.

Have you tried any of the examples at the solution center?

From my understanding only solid geometry in supported, but then I am not an expert.

If you use NX11, and your body is a "convergent" one, then I'd guess that UF_MODL_trace_a_ray will work. Convergent bodies are real solid bodies, even though their faces are facetted "mesh" surfaces.

 

But, this is just a guess -- I haven't tried it myself.
