Can anyone tell me how to create half cylinder view in NX 9 drafting.
For eg. Consider a cylinder of dia as 50 and Length as 200, if I would like to show the upper portion of the cylinder from the center line how can I show. I don't want to show bottom portion of the cylinder as it is symmetry.
Please help if someone knows.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could also consider just redefining the boundary of your view so that only half of your cylinder is visible in the view. Just right-click the view boundary, select Boundary, change the boundary type to Manual Rectangle, and then drag a rectangle around the portion of the view you want to be visible.
Here are some Help topics that might also help you add dimensions to a view like this:
Thanks for your reply. There is some issue with View Break in NX 9. If we use view break you can't see center line of the component. It will get hide automatically by giving information dialogue.
Thanks for your reply.
If we use View Boundary as Manual Rectangle there are some of the visible lines below the center line of the component till the View Boundary. I don't require any of the visible lines below the center line of the component. I want to see the component view exactly above from center line of the component. Let me know if you have an alternate solution for this. It will be great help if solution exists.
Thanks in advance.
Well, if you use the view break method, here is a procedure that will let you "name" the centerline, and then use that name as a selection object in the Linear Dimension dialog box. That way you can hide the centerline (because it is outside the bounds of the view) but still use it to create dimensions.
Create a named centerline, and then hide it:
Now you have a named centerline that you can use to create linear dimensions.
