I am trying to modify an already defined structure made of walls as building structure type. I need to make a Boolean sum and cuts of some panels. I was thinking to use the Boolean operator available in the shell type structure. So I have changed the type of the structure with "geometric/structure type" and tried to make the operation I need.
Unfortunately I always get the same error : "NOT A BODY GET".
I have already encountered the same problem: http://forums.autodesk.com/to/Autodesk-Robot-Struc
Any suggestion ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You will find attached a video with the procedure I used to try to combine with boolean operator two different panels of a very simple RTD file (attached too).
The procedure I used was:
- Change the type of the structure from Building to Shell (3d);
- make the boolean sum of the two panels
The objects you have in the file you sent are defined as ACIS ones (you can easily see this when you you open their meshing parameters dialog which are different then for 'standard' panels) and this was also my assumption for your previous Not a Body get thread on the forum. Could you create them again in a new project making sure that the solid modeler format is SWITCHED OFF (make sure you re-started Robot after making this change in its Preferences)? Otherwise for ACIS objects use the single-operand Union instead.

You are right. Changing the type of structure from building to shell (_3D in other words) Robot, in my case, was using as default general setting the option you were talking about. Switching off the option the Boolean operations run correctly.
