Is there a way to work on projects that are 4 or 5 Km in size in NX ?

Hi,

I don't remenber the settings to be able to work on projects that are 4 or 5 Km in size in NX ?

Or maybe it's not possible

Thanks in advance

You can find it in Customer Defaults - Gateway - Visualization - View/Screen

Increase the value for "maximum Size for an objects Bounding box"

Or draw a sketch line and give
it your big dimension

RE: Is there a way to work on projects that are 4 or 5 Km in size in NX ?

I might be wrong, but I think the 1 km side length cube is a hard limit on the modeling space. For anything larger, you might need to work on a scaled down version.

Hi Cowski,

I have tried and found that the limit is 500m side length

It is a 1km per side cube, centered on the absolute origin. Limits would be -500m to +500m in the X, Y, and Z directions.

What happens when you try to create something that is 5km long ?

Hi Jerry,

You can play with my part: the sketch is editable, but it's not possible to extrude it

The parasolid limit is 1km cube, centered around the ABS 0;0;0.
But, you can position components further away than that.

I hope that Siemens somehow changes this definition, the company i work for frequently struggles with the 1km3 limit.
The accuracy in NX is , for our purposes , well enough even if we would consider "1" as 1 meter instead of 1 mm.

Tomas

If something is of size 5km then
chances that it is repeatable
are close to 100%
