Drawing automation

We and Siemens in cooperation with some of our ship customers have been working on a project to create a drawing automation tool for section views. This project is a prototype for a tool that is planned by Siemens for NX 10 and future releases. Our prototype version will be available solely for our Norwegian Ship customers, and the final release will be available for you on the 25th of August.

If you are interested in get a Demo of this and to get this prototype please contact us

Tips & Tricks

In this tip we will show you how you can implement parameters from the Grid part in a Main Dimension table on a GA drawing. By combining different linked expressions from the Grid part you are able to create specific ship related parameters as input in the Main Dimension table. These parameters are associative. So updates to the Main Dimensions or other features in the Grid part will lead to updates of the input in the Main Dimension table also. This is possible for any expression or attribute of a component inside your drawing assembly. See the video on our Youtube channel here, or download it here.
