With the end of maintenance for NX10.0.3 approaching this November, now's a great time to join our NX CAD expert Matt Martin as he covers new NX 11 features. The updated user interface makes it easier to switch between parts you're working on, while at the same time maintaining the last working application of those parts.

For example, if you're working on the drawing for a part in the Drafting Application & need to make a modeling change, switching to the model will also change to the Modeling Application. No longer will you be banging your head against your monitor looking for Modeling tools while you're actually in Drafting. Finding the part you want is also improved by providing a preview of your parts as well as CTRL+TAB to access them.

In this NX engineering tips article, let’s look at installing and using the Siemens Machinery Library. The Siemens Machinery Library can be freely downloaded by anyone with current maintenance and WebKey. The library contains seed or template parts for common fasteners such as hex bolts, cap screws, nuts, pins and other commonly used mechanical parts. These parts are all Part Family parent templates used to create a family of fasteners of varying lengths and sizes.

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.
