through face does not intersect path of the tool

Hi there

 

I'm trying to cut a part into slices using datum planes and the "trim body tool"

 

My work flow looks like this

-Body

-Datum plane at 39mm

-Trim body going up

-Datum plane at 38 mm

-Trim body going down

 

So I just want the slice between layers 38 and 39. This workflow works fine up to layer 38. At layer 39, there are some circular channels inside the part that make a sharp curve and I get the "through face does not intersect path of the tool" error

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Matt,

 

Thanks for the reply. It's a version of NX. How exactly is Solid Edge different from NX?

Re: through face does not intersect path of the tool

Solid Edge and NX are 2 seperate CAD packages. 

 

I see that you already posted this question on the NX forum...

http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/NX-Design-Forum/ct-p/NXforDesign

 

...so your answer will come from one of the users there.

 

Solid Edge and NX are both Siemens products but are completly seperate products...

 

good luck

Thanks! I take it the interfaces and ui are a little different?
