A way to let one value of the dimension takes value from an array?

A way to let one value of the dimension takes value from an array?

(OP)
Hello,

I want to conduct a parameter study for a design. The CAD model is designed in SIEMENS NX and then imported into the simulation software.

I want to change the value of one variable and see how the simulation result changes. Is there a way in NX to let the dimension take the value from an array and then export them?

An example would be, the thickness of a panel is denoted by d. I want the d takes value from 10 to 100 with a step of 10. And model of each d value will be exported in STP format.

NX version: 12



Thanks in advance.

Hi,
It's very easy by using tools spreadsheet and build a family. But the result is .prt and not .stp
You can export to stp manually after.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
