Can't find the HULL command

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello,

 

As a naval architect I am learning NX to use with ship design to expand my skills. I am familiar with basic NX modelling but when I try to follow the documentation on ship design I unfortunately get stuck:

 

In the documentation is suggested that I should use the "hull"-command to create my hull from faces/bodies. It says that I should be able to find the command here: Home tab→Steel Features group→Hull, but I can't. The search function displays the command is available via the Gateway application but as soon I start Gateway the search function says the "hull"-command is not available.

 

Could anyone please help me out on this problem, which is slowly wrecking my nerves...

Hi @Jessedev,

 

From description looks like you are finding it in native NX.

Ship structure applications will be available in managed NX mode.

Hull command can be found in Home tab→Steel Features group when you are in "Ship Structure Basic Design" application.

Thank you for your reply @GaneshKadole. I am able to start the Ship Design Application and most of the commands, only the hull command does not appear. Do you mean that when NX would be ran out of a Teamcenter-environment, this command would be available?

With managed NX (Teamcenter environment) you can find it in "Ship Structure Basic Design" application.

Thank you for your help @GaneshKadole. Indeed I was able to find the "hull"-command in managed NX. Unfortunately I am not able to complete the command:

I'm afraid the absence of materials in Teamcenter is the source of this problem.

I assume these materials can be loaded into Teamcenter using the Ship Structure Library installation as can be found in he NXShip-folder. However, I'm not able to run this .bat file as I am experiencing the following error:

Thank you for your time!

 

Greetings,

Hi Jesse,

Please install the Ship Library first inside your TC environment.

 

you will find the instructions in your Default NX installation folder...  NXSHIP/Installation Tool/

 

Once these standard parts are imported you can do whatsoever you want to do.

 

Thanks and Best Regards
