NX10 create a 3D part highest point

NX10 create a 3D part highest point

Hi Guys.

im new to this NX10, i wanted to know is there a option to create a point on 3D on highest point ? like if i have a curvy 3D file and i wanted to know the higest point of it, how to do? i know there is functiion like this on Quick_Electrode

RE: NX10 create a 3D part highest point

Yes there is. The function is called 'Measure Extremes' and out-of-the-box it can be found on the Analysis tab in the first 'More' drop down (or use the Command Finder). I've attached a file I used to demo this capability when it was first introduced in NX 8.5. To make it obvious what's happening, the model consists of a couple of sketches and a spline with a Wide Green Line drawn between TWO 'Extreme' points, one at the maximum 'Y' direction (HIGHEST) and the other at the minimum 'Y' direction (LOWEST). To see how this works simply edit any of the THREE curves so that it changes their relative position as to which is the 'highest' or 'lowest' on the screen. Note that there's a Help page covering this function which can be found by hitting the 'F1' key while in the 'Measure Extremes' dialog.

White Paper - Design for Additive Manufacturing
With a growing number of parts manufactured directly by additive manufacturing techniques, it is important to lay down design principles suitable for such manufacturing processes and to ensure parts are designed for additive manufacturing. There are several factors that are to be considered at the design stage. Few such design issues in additive manufacturing are discussed in this paper. Download Now
