  • 1. Page 1Unrestricted Internal UseNX 5 to NX8 Translation Training• Prepared and Presented by Robin Ji• 2012-11-27
  • 2. Page 2Unrestricted Internal UseList of Content1. What’s new for NX82. NX5 to NX8 UI style change for CAD functionalities3. Direct sketch4. Synchronous Modeling5. Advanced Sheet Metal
  • 3. Page 3Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…GatewayRepeat commandUse Repeat Command to rerun any one of the last ten commands thatyou used.The last ten commands that you used appear in the Repeat Commanddrop-down list in the order in which they were activated. The most recentlyactivated command appears at the top of the list. When you choose acommand from the list, NX validates whether the command can be rerunin the current scenario, and then activates it.Where do I find it?

  • 5. Page 5Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…GatewayAttributes enhancementsNX attributes are now enhanced. You can:•Define part attributes of the null, Boolean, string, integer, number, and date data types.•Use variable length arrays of supported data types to define values of part attributes.•Define the unit of measure for a part attribute of the number data type.•Map attributes between NX and Teamcenter in a better way, as part attributes are no longerrestricted to the string data type.•Edit the set of attributes in component instance objects.•Access attributes through a single standardized user interface.•Link expressions to attributes. Any change in the attributes is propagated to the linkedexpressions.•Link attributes to expressions. The value of an attribute is calculated by evaluating thelinked expression.•Link an attribute in one object to an attribute in another object.•Use the new Attribute Templates command to create and manage attribute templates thatyou can use to create attributes.Where do I find it?

  • 7. Page 7Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…GatewayCustomizing a command dialog boxUse the Save Favorite and Save Favorite As commands to save asingle or multiple versions of a command dialog box. If there are specificvalues and layouts of a dialog box that you use frequently, for instance ifyou expand or collapse certain groups, then you can set up the dialog boxas you frequently use it, and save it as a favorite. This saves you from re-entering values for often-used cases.Where do I find it?[Use Measure Distance as a demo to show this functionality]

  • 13. Page 13Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Direct SketchingIntroduction of Direct sketchingThe Direct Sketch toolbar and the Sketch task environment offer twomodes you can use to create and edit sketches. Siemens PLM Softwarerecommends that you:•Use the Direct Sketch toolbar when you want to:• Create or edit a sketch in the Modeling, Shape Studio, or Sheet Metal applications.• See the effect of sketch changes on the model in real-time.•Use the Sketch task environment when you want to:• Edit an internal sketch.• Experiment with sketch changes, but retain the option to discard all the changes.• Create a sketch in other applications.

  • 17. Page 17Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Direct SketchingOpen a sketch for editInternal Sketches [Sketch Task Environment]In the Part Navigator, right-click the owning feature and choose Edit Sketch.In the Part Navigator or the graphics window, double-click the owning feature. On the feature dialogbox, click the Sketch Section step to activate the Sketch task environment.External Sketches [Direct Sketching]From Modeling you can open external sketches in a number of ways, depending on your workpreference:Double-click a sketch curve in the graphics window.From the Part Navigator:• Double-click a sketch feature.• Right-click a sketch and choose Edit.Choose Edit→Sketch.Edit Multiple Sketches [Sketch Task Environment]You can edit multiple sketches when you require just one model update. To edit multiple sketches youmust:Choose Insert →Sketch task environment .Select a sketch name from the Sketch toolbar.To edit subsequent sketches, you can double-click a sketch in the Part Navigator or select anothersketch name from the Sketch toolbar.
  • 18. Page 18Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8… Synchronous ModelingIntroduction of Synchronous ModelingSynchronous Modeling commands are used to modify a modelregardless of its origins, associativity, or feature history.The model you modify can be:•Imported from other CAD systems•Non-associative, with no features•A native NX model complete with features•By working directly with the model, the geometry is not rebuilt orconverted.With Synchronous Modeling, designers can use parametric featureswithout the limitations of a feature history.

  • 26. Page 26Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Advanced Sheet MetalFlange length measurement enhancementsThe Inside and Outside flange length options are now specified in amanner that is standard in the straight brake industry. A new Web flangelength option is added to measure the distance from the end of theadjacent bend to the end of the flange.
  • 27. Page 27Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Advanced Sheet MetalFlange length measurement enhancementsThe Inside flange length option now measures the distance from thevirtual intersection of the tab faces that are adjacent to the inner bendface, to the top of the flange.
  • 28. Page 28Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Advanced Sheet MetalFlange length measurement enhancementsThe Outside flange length option now measures the distance from thevirtual intersection of the tab faces that are adjacent to the outer bendface, to the top of the flange.
  • 29. Page 29Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Advanced Sheet MetalFlange length measurement enhancementsThe Web length option measures the distance from the bend tangent lineto the top of the flange.
  • 30. Page 30Unrestricted Internal UseWhat’s new for NX8…Advanced Sheet MetalTab enhancementsWhen you use the Tab command, you can now create secondary tabs byadding material to bend regions when they are in the unbent state.
