NX – Placing Text on Curved Surfaces in NX

NX Tip of the Week – March 13, 2015

NX provides a simple and powerful tool that allows you to place text on a variety of curved surfaces. With your model open, select the Text command from the dropdown shown:


When the options bar opens up, change the Type to On Face:


Then select the face of one of your models, then click down onto Select curve to select one of its edges:


It will then place your text down and you can use the arrows to move around the text. Moving it up and down the curve will even allow it wrap around multiple angles!


This method should allow you to create wrapping text on your models although if this doesn’t work for your particular model, you can contact us at info@prolim.com we can offer you assistance.
