Siemens NX Jet Hints: Feature-based Dimensioning in NX Drafting

By | 10/07/2016

    A common situation is when you have designed your part in a solid body and need to create a draft with all dimensions. If you had using sketches, holes or symbolic threads in your part – then this way will help you to inherit dimensions from solid onto a draft. By the way, this feature is very helpful, because it simplifies the process of dimensioning itself.

    You need to create a new sheet in your draft and place all views, that you needed, as it shown at the picture:

    Once it is done you’re able to inherit dimensions from the model. Insert “feature parameters” in the Command Finder and press Enter. (Note: you have to be in the Drafting module to find the command).
