In siemens nx surface, through curve mesh command use to create a body through a mesh of sections in one direction and guides in another direction there the shape fits through the mesh of curves. A section is curves, point, solids edges, solid face.
Where do I find it?
From menu : Insert -> Mesh surface -> through curve mesh.
From Home tab: Surface group -> Through curve mesh.
How to use through curve mesh command.
1. From Home tab: Surface group -> Through curve mesh.
2. In primary curves group, select curve is active. Select first primary in the graphics window. In this guide, first primary is a point.
After select first primary, click the middle mouse button or add new set in primary curves group to select second, third,fourth,… primary curve. In primary curves you can select curves or points.
Note: You need to check direction of primary curves. You can click reverse direction to change direction.
3. In the cross curve group, select curve is active. In the graphics window, select the first curve, then click middle mouse button or left click Add new set in the cross curves group to select second, third, fourth cross curves.
Note: The cross curve need same direction. You can change it by click on reverse direction.
In this tutorial, there are 4 cross curves but we have cross curve 5 in the cross curves list. Because, I want to create a closing sheet so I have to select the cross curve 1 two times.
4. In continuity group.
Apply to all: applies the same continuity setting for first and last sections.
In first primary, last primary, first cross, last cross, you can select:
G0 (Position): position continuous tolerance, defaults to the distance.
G1 (Tangent): tangent continuous tolerance, defaults to the angle.
G2 (Curvature): Curvature continuous tolerance, defaults to 0.1 or 10 percent of the relative tolerance.
5. In the settings group, you can select output body type is sheet or solid.
6. Click Ok to complete.
