Congratulations! Your company has decided that Model Based Definition (MBD) is the way of the future. Moving forward, it’s “easy” to leave behind the drawings and move to an MBD approach by using Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) in NX. But what do you do with all of your current model files without MBD/PMI? Do you create new PMI objects in the model similar to those annotations on your drawings?
 
In this online seminar wel look at Convert to PMI to convert drafting views and objects directly to corresponding model views and PMI objects. While there is no “easy button” to convert your entire product line or database over to MBD/PMI, as you up-revise your parts, you can easily bring them into compliance with new MBD initiatives your company has adopted.
 
As well, if you are a machine shop consuming NX drawings and part files, you can easily Convert to PMI to make programming your parts faster.
 
Check out our video to learn about pitfalls, caveats, and the occasional gotcha when it comes to updating legacy parts with Convert to PMI.
