Geometry missing from imported part (by Jeremy Fitzhardinge)
I have a very simple part consisting of two cylinders (extruded circles) joined with a bend (rotated circle), with a couple of chunks cut out (subtractive extrusions). This reports nurb errors (and is not closed), so I triangulate it.

This is fine in isolation, but when I import it into another file, all the geometry is missing. If I remove the triangulation, it has geometry, but it is broken.

I can generate an stl from the original (triangulated) part, and it seems fine. I can also import the stl, but that lacks all the features to use as reference.

It all seems to work as expected if I remove all the subtractive features.

Is this a bug or am I missing something?

While both files re needed for someone to look at the problem, put them in a zip file, it is worth trying checking 'force NURBS surfaces to triangle mesh' in the import group.

I have had similar problems, and it looks like the force is not being carried through on an import.

Oh, thanks, that was exactly it.
