Show / Remove Constraints siemens NX

Use the Show / Remove Constraints command to display the geometric constraints that are associated with sketch geometry. Use Show / Remove Constraints to: Remove specified constraints. List information about all geometric constraints. Interrogate and resolve over-constrained or conflicting conditions. Maintain design intent by checking for existing relationships to outside …

Auto Constrain siemens NX

Use the Auto Constrain command to select the types of geometric constraints that NX applies automatically to a sketch. NX analyzes the geometry in the active sketch and applies the selected constraints where possible. Why would I use it? Auto Constrain can be especially useful when you add geometry to …

Constraints siemens NX

Use the Constraints command to add geometric constraints to sketch geometry. These specify and maintain conditions for or between sketch geometry. Constraints can: Define a line as being horizontal or vertical. Ensure that multiple lines remain parallel to each other. Require that several arcs have the same radius. Position your …

Sketch positioning dimensions siemens NX

Positioning dimensions let you position a sketch as a rigid body relative to existing external geometry. Options Create Positioning Dimensions Lets you create positioning dimensions that locate your sketch as a rigid body relative to existing geometry (edges, datum planes, and datum axes). When you choose this icon, NX displays …

Alternate Solution siemens NX

Use the Alternate Solution command to display alternate solutions for both dimensional and geometric constraints, and select a result. The example below shows how the geometry changes when you choose Alternate Solution and select a dimension. Perpendicular, Horizontal, and Vertical dimensions maintain their direction when the expression value is set …

Convert To/From Reference siemens NX

Use the Convert To/From Reference command to convert sketch curves from active to reference, or dimensions from driving to reference. Downstream commands do not use reference curves and reference dimensions do not control sketch geometry. By default NX displays reference curves in Phantom line font: Active curves Reference curve Reference …

Inferred Constraints and Dimensions siemens NX

Use the Inferred Constraints and Dimensions command to control which constraints or dimensions are automatically inferred during curve construction. You can set inferred constraints for geometric constraints, dimensional constraints, and constraints recognized when using snap point options. Note Inferred constraints behave like normally applied geometric constraints and can be seen …

Continuous Auto Dimensioning siemens NX

Use the Continuous Auto Dimensioning command to automatically dimension sketch curves after each operation. This command uses auto dimensioning rules to fully constrain the active sketch, including positioning dimensions to the parent Datum CSYS. You can set auto dimensioning rules from the following: Inferred Constraints and Dimensions File→Utilities→Customer Defaults→Sketch→Inferred Constraints …
