NX 11 Auto dimensioning prolem

NX 11 Auto dimensioning prolem

Hello all,

I have a little problem with my NX. Normally I use standard default settings (a habit from student times) but a few days ago I accidentally turned on some function concerns auto-dimension and auto-constraint - fast double click on a message box so I don't know what was that.

When I have a simple sketch everything is ok. When I make it more complex all dimensions turn into black, auto-dimensioning go off, lines change color from green to blue. I can manually turn on auto-dimensioning but - when I draw something - again it goes off

I tried to find some solution but without effects. Moreover, I reinstalled NX but with that same effect - without changes.

Maybe someone has some ideas about how to fix it.


Best Regards

RE: NX 11 Auto dimensioning prolem

From the sketch & dimensions colours in the images you've uploaded, it looks likes the first image is when the sketch is open/in edit mode, the other looks to be when the sketch editing has been exited.
Without seeing the part navigator, that's all I can guess at this point.
