wireframe flattening


New member
Is there any way to flatten curves in NX4? I havetwo 3D splines that I want to flatten...in NX2, I used App-sheet metal-tools-wireframe flattening-triangulated--ruled. pick one curve for sequence one and the other for sequence two.....

Now in NX4, I have to make a ruled surface and then flatten the surface and transform the curves to get it on the wcs the way I need it.....

If you have sheet metal modul then use "insert"->"sheet metal"-> "meta form"

make first surface from both sets of curves then you can project it from one to another.
