NX Routing for mechanical and electrical systems can help with your design by virtually routing and validating your designs before costly build errors. Why guess how long your flexible hose or bent tubing needs to be? Or worse, wait until the system is built and physically measure for placement only to find that it won't fit causing redesign.

By creating a "flexible" hose in NX Mechanical Routing, Override Position in parent assemblies, and using Define Deformable Parts, you effectively avoid using alternative representations (Alt Reps) in assemblies and Bill of Material (BOM) structures.

The flexible hose can be designed as a straight component then modified in context at the assembly level. This allows different configurations in different assemblies without affecting the released flexible hose component.

Create a flange or extension based on angle as it relates to a face or vector.

NX Blend Corner is used to clean up existing blend like intersecting faces. This tool can be used to reduce the number and complexity of patch faces used to create intersecting geometry. Blend Corner can be used to make intersecting blended vertices look more aesthetically pleasing or to make the CAD geometry reflect the actual part.

Blend Corner can be used on both "dumb" or un-parameratized geometry and fully featured history tree. It can also be used on solids and surfaces alike.

The Limit Curves on each blend or blend-like face create Transition Curves that are used to create the new surface. Multiple intersecting blended faces can be selected and edited.

By de-selecting Patch Into Part, you can use tools like Deviation gauge to see the difference between the new patch and old faces. Then make the call.
