Hi all, new (old) user here who spent lots of time up until 2007 with Unigraphics/NX. Haven't used it since then, now working on NX10.

I'm doing some reverse Engineering and can't figure out how to bisect two lines at an angle to each other? I have two lines that are 0.11 degrees from parallel and I need a line exactly in the middle at half the angle.

Also, how does this work with planes? I have a similar situation with two planes that are slightly non-parallel. How do I get a plane equidistant from each of them bisecting their angle difference?

On our Zeiss CMM that runs on their Calypso software, generating one of these planes uses a function called "Symmetry Plane". You select both planes and it bisects them, useful for defining coordinate systems.

Thanks for the help!

For the datum planes, open the datum plane dialog, then set the type to be 'bisector'.

For the curves, the curves must be part of an active sketch. Then, use 'Menu -> Insert -> Sketch Curve -> Derived lines.'

You can use Basic Curves (result is without parameters). Select 2 lines only.
