Best way to scramble the B surface

Best way to scramble the B surface


Iam curious if anyone has idea to scramble a B surface, so that if some wants to untrim it and see what it was a part of, then they will not be able to do that.

Currently if you have B surface and when untrim command is used, it shows the portion of the body it was made from.

Are you referring to a native NX file or neutral format?

Oh yeah.. NX native file.. NX12 user..

RE: Best way to scramble the B surface

If you trim a b-surface you can un-trim and thereby restore the original shape. This is because the shape and the trim are stored as separate equations / descriptions.
If you instead "snip" the surface, you will reformulate the foundation equation without the trimming description. ( Not all trimming operations are possible, and there is also a chance that you get shape change.)
But; if successful you cannot restore the original shape.

If this doesn't affect anything and you are trying to hide underlying geometry, try delete face without heal, then use fill surface as a replacement.

White Paper – Your Construction ERP RFP Checklist
Selecting business software for a medium to enterprise-sized construction concern is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project and asset-centric business. However, midsize to large contractors need the predictable, auditable processes that ERP delivers. Download Now
