NX X Unwrap Curves raises an error with a "Fill Surface"

NX for Design



When unwrapping a cone, created with a "Fill Surface", it raises an error.


A cone, created with a "Fill Surface" needs to be unwrapped on a plane, but it raises an error.

The issue here is that a "Fill Surface" is not "Developable". 
"Unwrap Curves" is used to unwrap curves and points from a conical, cylindrical or ruled "developable" face onto a plane.

To correct this :

- Use a Ruled face : 
 * Alignment Developable 
 * Start Filler Surface Type Generalized Cone (to match the lines connecting  the arcs/circles) 
 * End Filler Surface Type Generalized Cone

- Unwrap Curves 
 * Select Curves 
 * Select Face 
 * Tangent Datum Plane 
 * Select Point

The same can also be done with a Cone.
