I've almost got a whopping 7 weeks of experience using NX8.5 under my belt (I expect the organization to be switching to 12 before the new year).
I am provided with geometries in .stp, iges, or x.t. format. I then perform work on these. Later, I may be provided with alternative geometries related to the original file. When I import these new geometries into original geometry file, they are automatically placed correctly (so I don't want to solve my difficulty in a way that interferes with that).
Here's my difficulty
I click Insert> Sketch in Task Environment> I select the sketch plane > I click ok
Then the model "jumps" and is no longer visible on my screen. I then have to zoom out, rotate the model and zoom in again to work on the new sketch.
Can someone please advise me on how to stop this annoying behavior?
Solved! Go to Solution.
In the customer defaults, you can turn off the "change view orientation" which will prevent NX from automatically orienting to the plane of the sketch.
File -> utilities -> customer defaults -> sketch -> general -> session settings -> change view orientation
Note that you will need to restart NX after making this change for it to take effect.
