Exporting polynurbs to parasolid + reduce thickness

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I fitted polynurbs to my optimized structure and exported it to NX via a parasolid file type. But when i open this file in NX

it looks to me that the partitions i used and the optimized structures (non-design space) are not 'connected'. They seem to be seperate files

but i want them to be one assembly because I need to do an FEA study on the whole structure. Does anybody know how to fix this?


I also have a second question. My optimized structure does seem to have a lot of full planes (I added some photos as a link at the bottom). But i don't want a lot of planes because my 

structure will be 3D printed in metal and i don't want a lot of thermal stresses and deformation. So does anybody know how to get a lot of thin arms instead of full planes?

I already tried to use the 'maximum thickness' constraint but it didn't seam to do the job.
