NX CAD 12.0.2 introduced the ability to use a single measurement dialog box to verify distances, angles, and mass properties. This function helps capture associative measurements, giving the measurement of the minimum and maximum contact distance between assembly components.
Consolidation of the measurement commands started with the NX12.0.2 CAD release, which gave users the ability to select multiple objects in a sequence and quickly view the available measurements. This created a much faster working environment and testing ability than in previous versions of NX CAD. This improvement, in turn, speeds up product validation and keeps requirements on track for a successful cycle timeframe. Dynamically this function redefines the objects to measure and the output results to update in real time.
The Overall concept is to streamline all measurements commands, which in return will allow users to capture measurements more quickly and efficiently. Interactions become simpler and less daunting for the user behind the measurements. Once created, the process is super simple and can increase productivity.
In order to assess measurement results, visit the console tab. These measurements are displayed based on the method you use, which controls whether the selected objects are processed as: individual objects, pairs, or objects in a chain.
