NX11 - Problems with Thickness Dimension

NX11 - Problems with Thickness Dimension

NX11 - Problems with Thickness Dimension

We are having a problem with THICKNESS dimensions.

When we use the thickness dimension for curved slots, the arrow heads will go outside like they should, but the extension lines will not show up. If we double click the dimension and click on the arrow head, we can flip it from IN to OUT and it fixes it, so this isnt a horrible problem. It just seems to me this isnt right either and I figured I would ask if anyone knows why this happens.

With the arrows set to IN, on regular dimensions, if the distance becomes too small, it will automatically flip outside. I also find that even thickness dimensions flip automatically if you use them on two straight surfaces. But for some reason on curved slots, they dont work right.

RE: NX11 - Problems with Thickness Dimension

Probably a bug - Siemens seems to be getting a bit better at breaking things between each release. I'd call GTAC and report it or check to see if it's been reported.
