change drawing sheet size from 210x297 to 297x210

change drawing sheet size from 210x297 to 297x210

change drawing sheet size from 210x297 to 297x210

In NX by default for A4 size sheet, In edit sheet size, A4- 210x297.

Please advise how to change A4- 297x210. I am working in NX12 migration and in NX11 A4- 297x210 is working. Please help
Thanks in advance

RE: change drawing sheet size from 210x297 to 297x210

Edit sheet -> choose the "custom size" option and reverse the height/length values.


RE: change drawing sheet size from 210x297 to 297x210

Edit your sheet size, set up your custom title block, save as template, then you can edit the .pax file description to be "A4" or "bhavyarani's custom drawing" or whatever else you like.

You cannot edit the values in the standard size dropdown, these are set in the NX code. You could contact GTAC to open a request for them to change it back, but I doubt they are going to change it now...

Thanks, NutAce, I learned something new today.

This is a setting in the Customer Defaults. Most probably in your company Drafting Standards.
You should ask your CAD administrator to make this size available for you.

Yes, as Nutace says, it is the order of the numbers in that customer defaults text line which makes the sheet appear as landscape or portrait.

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
White Paper - The Criticality of the E/E Architecture
Modern vehicles are highly sophisticated systems incorporating electrical, electronic, software and mechanical components. Mechanical systems are giving way to advanced software and electronic devices, driving automakers to innovate and differentiate their vehicles via the electric and electronic (E/E) architecture. As the pace of change accelerates, automotive companies need to evolve their development processes to deliver and maximize the value of these architectures. Download Now
