If I need to produce models and drawings of each stage of machining for a single component, what would be a good workflow in NX?
I would probably have the finish model design to start with. I have use both a de-featuring workflow and a linked part file workflow in other systems.
I would like all the operations to be associative so if I change OP2 it is reflected in all subsequent operations.
My first thought was to use an assembly and theWAVE linker.
Anyone have a successful workflow they would like to share?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Proper NX workflow would be using assemblies and the wave geometry linker like you stated.
So Cast Model > Machining model(s) > Assembly model(s)
It will retain associativity through all the steps
there are two solutions :
All are associative. Wave is more robust, but you have to adopt some strategies to avoid doubling weight and visualization of the cast in upper level or in drawings.
