How to set the default  front clipping distance and back clipping distance in NX8.5 ?


Re: How to set default?

From Documentation (NX 8.5)

Clipping planes are invisible planes that NX creates by default, in front of and behind the model. These planes are at a default distance where the model does not intersect them when you rotate it.


FCD - Front Clipping Distance

BCD - Back Clipping Distance


Menu > View > Camera > Edit

You can enter desired values manually for FCD and BCD

 I checked this in NX 9, when this command is started, Clipping section has some default values for 'Front Clipping Distance' and 'Back Clipping Distance'. Then I had defined expressions for FCD,BCD and tried to use them, but seems that it is not possible to use expressions for clipping values. However, if I enter the expression name and press tab, it takes the value of expression as shown. Same behaviour in NX 10.
