Cannot Delete Loose Body

Hi All


I am been trying like heck to get rid of this floating piece of a body. I am trying to make an air solid for CFD analysis. I first made a large extrude that enveloped the geometry. I did a binary operation to subtract out the parts from the volume to create the air solid. there are still a few hanging pieces that I am trying to delete and NX7.5 is giving me a hard time. I have tried the following


1.  revolve cut --->" Unable to create revolved body from specified section axis and parameters" I know this is not true since I can unite or create a body with the same inputs just cannot subtract

3. split body --> "tool Body Completly outside target Body"

4.  Trim body --> "Target body completely outside tool body "


Is there an easier way of takeing the negative of an object?  Thanks in advance.


I noticed that I only get the error if I completely try and delete the solid. If I leave a small piece around I can perform the revolved cut but still cannot get rid of the floating piece entirely.

The easiest and "Kind of Dirty" way would be to try and delete the resulting floating bodies with Synchronous Technology.
