Offset Surface siemens NX

Use the Offset Surface command to create an offset of one or more existing faces. The result is a new body (or bodies) with an offset relation to the chosen faces. The software creates a true offset surface by offsetting points along surface normals of the selected face. The specified …

Thicken siemens NX

Use the Thicken command to offset one or more connected faces or sheets into a solid body. Thickening occurs by offsetting the selected faces along their face normals, and then creating sidewalls. Note The Thicken command is similar to the Offset Face command. You can use the Boolean options with …

Shell siemens NX

Use the Shell command to hollow out a solid body or to create a shell around it by specifying wall thicknesses. You can also assign individual thicknesses to faces or remove individual faces. Where do I find it? Application Modeling Toolbar Feature→Shell Menu Insert→Offset/Scale→Shell Shortcut menu Right-click a solid body→Shell

Point Set to Point Set Alignment siemens NX

Use Point Set to Point Set Alignment to select any geometric object, transform it, and realign it using point sets. To do this, you need to specify a minimum of three source points (the from points) on the object you want to realign and three reference points (the to points) …

Trimmed Sheet siemens NX

Use the Trimmed Sheet command to trim sheet bodies to intersecting faces and datums, and projected curves and edges. The following example shows a sewn sheet body trimmed by two intersecting surfaces and one set of projected curves. 1 Sewn Sheet body to be trimmed. 2 Intersecting surfaces selected as boundary objects. …
