PMI details not recognised in Feature Based machining

Creator

I have added PMI to a feature.Then Using Teach feature,added the feature in the library.

But I cannot see PMI details in Attributes.

Question is how to make PMI to appear in Attribute details?

 

Check the attached presentation.

 

NX version 9.0.3.4

 

thanks !!

Hi,

 

Please have a look at this tech tip video.

You need to add a name to each of the PMI dimensions to tell FBM which dimensions you are interested in, what to call them and then the software will use the PMI geometry association to derive a recognition rule that will pickup both the actual dimension and the dimension tolerance.

 

So instead of the Ø50 ± 0.1 you need to use Ø50 ± 0.1 MY_DIAMETER.

This will tell FBM to add MY_DIAMETER, MY_DIAMETER_UPPER and MY_DIAMETER_LOWER attributes to your feature (shown in the dialog on your slide #4) and populate them with the proper values.

 

Best of luck,

Hi Tom,

 

thanks for the reply,Video is very helpful.

Its working fine except the below case .

 

I have created Lightweight section and applied PMI by picking up the arc and second by corner edge blend,also named it (see images below) .Only R5 RAD_1 shows up in attribute list but not R5 ARC_SEC.

 

What may be the reason.

You can only use real geometry, since the attributes must be associated to an existing edge or face.
