How to get back the transform feature

Dear all,

is there any solutions to retrieve all features from the original TRANSFOM feature ?

The MOVE OBJECT is so sophistificated in NX10, that it takes twice more time to move an object than before.

 

Or is there any solutions to set up the MOVE OBJECT feature to be more basic like the TRANSFOM feature was ?

 

Thanks ahead

Hi,

I might be wrong but i guess you can still use TRANSFORM (Menu-Edit-Transform)...perhaps you might have been using CTRL+T for invoking the dialog (which by default is attached to MOVE OBJECT now).

As @kapilsharma mentioned, 'Transform' command is available in NX.

 

From NX 6, some commands(options) were moved from 'Transform' to 'Move Object' command. Old 'Transform' command had additional options Translate,Rotate about a line,Reposition as compared to the present transform command.

 

From Documentation

Are you looking for the 'Translate' option of 'Transform' command? 

You can have access to the old 'Transform' command options. Define system environment variable 'UGII_ENABLE_TRANSFORM_LEGACY_OPTIONS' with value 1. You will get all those options.

I prefer this method as well as it gives you the options of what layers you want to put the transformed entities on.

Agree.

And there are still few things that can not even be done with the move object feature, that you can do with the transform feature.

Like mirror and scale.

The move object is not available by working in the drafting application, but transform is available,

etc...
