visibility in blend command

visibility in blend command

visibility in blend command

NX2007, I can't seem to find the defaults to control the visibility of the display when I'm in the blend command.
it changes to wireframe with hidden edges (which I'm not sure I actually want) but I'd at least like to change it to a static wireframe so I can see everything.

RE: visibility in blend command

When you start the blend command, NX automatically changes the view rendering style?
That sounds... odd. I don't know of an OOTB option to change the view style when starting a particular command.
I don't have NX2007 installed, but I don't see any such option in NX1919 or NX2206.


RE: visibility in blend command

I think what you're after is the See-Thru Style (see image) in Preferences -> Visualisation, there's 3 options to try.

RE: visibility in blend command

Anthony, I just tried all of those, nothing seemed to do it

this is what I'm talking about, when i pick the blend command, after i pick an object, the display changes to dull shaded,
I'd like it to be wire frame so i can see every edge...
OH, hang on, I just started the command, then drag-selected, the wireframe view, and i got what I wanted......Maybe thats as close as I can get?
Unless anything else springs to mind?

RE: visibility in blend command

Are you aware of these three options ?
Pretty useful depending on the situation .


The more you know about a subject, the more you know how little you know about that subject.

RE: visibility in blend command

No I didn't, but I want the full wireframe so they don't really help that much,
but thanks for the reply

RE: visibility in blend command

Are you working in the context of an assembly or a single part file?


RE: visibility in blend command

Normally, I'd be in the part, but it looks the same if I do it from the assembly as well. (that image is a test file with lots of bodies in it)
