Bounding box (NX9 and above) by PhoeNX
Posted: 9 Jan 15

Seen posts here and had customers ask about bounding box functionality in NX.
The answer was to use Journals/NX Open/Grip etc to solve the problem.

NX has a function called Create Box that existed in the Wizards (Mold, Die or Electrode).
Without one of those Wizard licenses, you couldn't use it.

Saw an IR recently (see image below) which says that from NX9.0.3 onwards, you only need a solid modeling license to use the function.

Thought it was pretty neat function so we've made a video to show how to access it and how it works: https://vimeo.com/116116872
Also did some testing and NX9.0.2 can also do the same.
NX10 version of Create Box is better as well.
