NX Window Display for multiple files

NX Window Display for multiple files

Catia V5 has the capability to display simultaneously two or more (Catia) files, using Tile Horizontally/Vertically.
Does NX have this option by any chance? It does help…………!

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

Thanks, Cowski.
It'd be nice.........

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

Please open an Enhancement Request.

Thank you...

Using NX 8 and TC9.1

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

I know this tip isn't as good as having multiple windows, but it the best i can offer.
You can open multiple sessions of NX on the same computer. ( If you run under Teamcenter, it's a single session only.)
You can without taking more licenses open as many sessions on the same computer as you like, as long as it's the same user and the same computer. ( The same Display Address)


RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

Are your sure about this?
Should I double check with my IT department?

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

It works, but as said before, not through Teamcenter.

NX with Teamcenter 8 on win7 64
Intel Xeon @3.2GHz
Nvidia Quadro 2000

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

Great tip, thanks Toost and Walterke!

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

Yes, 100% sure.

RE: NX Window Display for multiple files

It does work and the reason no additional licenses is because you only have 1 active NX session. You cannot be modeling in one session while simultaneously dimensioning a drawing in the other. You can use it for looking at some feature in one and modeling an identical feature in the other session.
