Is there any way to check, the designed surface can be thickened or not?

By MATHI on 14 Feb 11:28 1 answer 672 views 0 comments

Hello,

I am using NX8 software.Please let me know how to check the quality of the surface so that I can assure that it accepts the thicken command.

Example:

I use N-sided surface command with Triangular patch option with tangent continuity.But I could not able to add the thickness to it.

I want to check whether any surface characteristic checks available in NX so that I could able to get some Informative details.

Thanks,
Mathi K

    use the "offset surface" command. This will allow self-intersecting surfaces and should create a "sheet body" you may be able to visually see where the problem is in the parent surface.

Add your answer to: "Is there any way to check, the designed surface can be thickened or not?"
