Hi,

 

Is there any tool in NX modeling enviroment to count the number of holes automatically?

 If it exists, would it also works with an imported step file?

 

Using NX 11 and soon NX12

 

Thanks for your help

Hi JCP,

 

Depending on prpose there are a couple of ways to do this. Since you mention the modeling env Im assumin that the manufacturing tools are out of the question. Attched is a video showing 3 ways:

  • Check Mate - see the video for the check used
  • Find Features under the manufacturing application is a good alternative given that you have the license
  • Finally filtering to sylindrical faces - this is however giving you all cylidrical faces.....
  • In addition if you set up yor part so that when the holes are created a color is assigned adopting the tool color you could separate the holes by color....

Hope it helps.

(view in My Videos)

 

Best Regards

Fred

I don't know a tool within NX.

the thing is how to define a hole? is every cylindrical face a hole that comes from a step file? 

Cylindrical faces can also be a blend face?

 

Visual reporting can maybe also help for step files, you can use the report "faces < user specified radius"

Here you can seachs for al the faces less then the given radius.

 

Maybe DFM Pro can help with this.
