Is there any way to Project curves in circular path

Genius

Hello

 

In a circular product, i am taking section and revolving to a common plane by using central axis.

 

Instead is there any option to project in a circular path which will avoid the revolve command and Section.

 

thanks in advance

Hi @Sekars 

 

In a circular product, i am taking section and revolving to a common plane by using central axis.

Would you please show it by example.

 

There may be other ways like using extract geometry at the part level, WAVE at assembly level etc.

 

EDIT -  I overlooked last sentence. Smiley Tongue
@robot139 have shown it already.

Hi @Sekars

you can use section curve command with radial planes type:

Please find the attached Nx 7.5 files (Attached 7.5 version, actually using Nx 11) inside the winzip files.

Kindy open the `Flange Assy Curves Nx 7.5.prt' and find the Majenta curves which is created by using following procedures.

1) 2 Datum planes created at the Bolt and Slot Center,
2) Individually section curves taken at Bolt and Slot Center,
3) Revolved individually to Y Plane,
4) Section taken at Y Plane and edited, moved to seperate reference set.

If the Circular Path Proejction option is there, then we can reduce the steps.

Hi @Sekars 

There is no circular path projection but there is circular path pattern.

You can use pattern geometry to rotate some curves around and axis associatively.

In old versions it was named circular array.

If you need to have the curves in your assembly file you need a wave geometry linker to make a copy of the bolt bodies in the assembly file.

What is it you are trying to accomplish here ?
Are you preparing a section to place on a drawing ? or what is the purpose of this section ?

Yes, preparing a section to place on a drawing.

Doesn't the revolved section in Drafting do what you desire ?

Hello Tomas

 

A Circular product is assembled with respect to X Axis. When viewing in Nx Screen if we see the product then the Z axis is top and X axis is pointing towards rightside.

 

Revolved section application here is different, So we cannot use your link tutorial revolved section. So in multiple places  (Multiple datum planes around 360 degree) we are taking the section curves and we are placing in the daum plane at Y plane section then we are making the drawning. Ths enables in a single view all features are shown around 360 degree. If required we will use the same view with multiple curves inside different different reference sets.

 

Hope i clarified you.
