Creation of New file in NX

Start NX from TC and choose New.


From the menu that opens, youll choose the most suitable base for the
current need of design, i.e. Template. All of the templates are regular
NX-parts, but they have built in settings and basic geometry for different
needs.
Make sure that chosen units are Millimeters
Choose the first template, Model, from the list.
Using the Assign button you can give the next available number or
revision to the item (3).
Template parts have basic attributes, which you can modify by selecting
Attributes... (4). It is recommended that you rename the part so that it is
easy to identify. A new name is given to the part using the Part Name
attribute.

Sketcher

Observation ( if any command activate)


1. Moving the geometry is quite difficult.
2. Dimension line also not movable.
3. After constraint we are able to move
dimension line

Constrained
CONSTRAINED: is the logical operation to
perform on geometry to restrict the shape
and position with respect to references.
Fully Constrained Dark Brown Geometry
Under constrained Green
Over constrained- Orange
Best way:
1. Geometric constrained
2. Dimensional constrained

Roles setting in NX

In NX it is possible select
different user roles according to
how much NX experience the
user has. After the installation,
the default role is set to
Essentials. This means that the
menus will be narrow and
simplified.

Customer Defaults, continuous auto dimensioning off

Lets make sure that the automatic dimensioning


of sketches is turned off so that the skething
would be more similar with older CAD-software.

Select File Utilities Customer Defaults


Sketch Inferred Constraints and Dimensions
Dimensions-tab and make sure that none of the
checkboxes are selected. After changes have been
made to Customer Defaults, the program has to
