NX12 Part Boundaries


It seems NX 12 has completely reconfigured part boundary selection in planer milling operations. I truly miss NX 11 for that and several other reasons. Is there a way to activate the (old) NX 11 part boundary method and use it in NX 12?

Hi @UGenius-not,


there is no way to return to the old boundary selection.


Would you mind sharing with us, what you are missing? Your feedback would help us.


Thanks in advance

It does take a minute or two to get used to...

But just like the interface switch going to NX9.0


Once you get used to it... You'll find it's better.

There has been an IR/ER submitted.


The same thing happened when removing legacy hole operations,

Implemented where you could switch it back on to operate legacy hole operations.
