Drawing issue - NX9

Creator

I have a drawing file and In that have a Sphere feature. From sphere extracted a Silhoute Curve in the modeling mode in Layer 1. Though Layer 1 is on in the particular view, extracted curve is not visible in the drawing. I am not sure why?

this is because in nx 9, by default, the views are loaded from the model and not from the master model, select the correct part in the top 'loaded parts'

But the feature is created in the drawing file itself

How was the drawing file created? Do you have -

  1. a drawing file separate from the model file
  2. the drawing created in the same file as the model

If you have #1, then I think @Cesare has given you the answer. If you have #2, then check the "layer visible in view" setting.

Drawing was created as #1. But the sphere Feature was created in Drawing file (Modeling mode) and extracted the edges by using
Insert------Curves from Bodies------silhouette curve option.

 

All the layers are visibile in the view.

Go to Menu -> information -> object... and select the drafting view. About 40 lines down in the info window the "part name" will be listed; if this lists your model part file, then the view has been added from the model and the silhouette curves do not show up because they do not exist in the model file. To add a view from the drawing file, start the base view command, expand the "part" section of the dialog (if necessary), make sure that the drawing file is selected, then select the model view to use, and place the drafting view.

I did the same.

MODEL1 - Model File Name
model1_dwg1.prt - Drawing File

Still view is not showing the silhouette curve in the view

From your post, it is not clear where the drafting view came from. Did the information window list the model file or the drawing file as the "part" for the given view?
