Usage of Block UI Styler's "Specify Vector" in CAE

Genius

Hi all,

 

currently I am using a "Specify Vector" Block in NX8.0 to be able to infer a vector from geometry.

 

As I noticed, the selection of Polygon Geometry (Faces or Edges) does not lead to the UI blocks infer mechanism and therewith retrieving a vector direction.

 

The documentation says to turn on "EnableFacetSelection", but this does not help, from the selected polygon geometry no vector is inferred.

 

Currently only the selection of FE-Nodes is possible, e.g. vector with two points.

 

Is there anything I am missing here for successful polygon geometry selection?

 

Best regards,

MGeyer

This was addressed in Problem Report 6887499:


Problem Description:  Cannot select Polygon Edges or Polygon Faces with a BlockStyler Specify Vector block when in a SIM part.  The same process in a FEM part works fine.

 

It was reported in NX8, and is reported to be resolved in NX8.5.3.

Hi SteveLabout,

 

thank you very much for your answer.

 

So I guess I'll have to use vector between two points as workaround until my customer does his upgrad to NX10.
