How to fuse balloons together like bolt-washer-nut combination NX 9 ?

[ Edited ]

Hi (in drawings)

1.) How to fuse balloons together like bolt-washer-nut combination NX 9 ?

  • In Siemens Solid Edge this option was very simple to use. It had vertical and horizontal balloon combinations and it was a lot easier to use.

2.) How to move balloon leaders for example in the center of the part without losing connection to part list ? I drag the leader to a more appropriate place but it loses the part number always when not connected to the edge.

1) Right click on a balloon and choose group horizontally|vertically. This will allow you to select other balloons to group with the chosen balloon.

 

2) To the best of my knowledge, NX 9 only allows you to associate balloon callouts with component edges.

To add a little more information to Cowski's solution, you can only group balloons if they are created using the Auto Balloon command: Stack a group of auto balloon callouts

 

It's available in NX9, though it's a little persnickety compared to NX10.
