Hello all. I have what I hope is a simple question. Whenever I place a section view, the default alignment is set as "Hinge." I want the default alignment to be "Inferred." How do I change this as a global setting for every drawing I'm working on.
I found this thread (https://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/NX-Design-Forum/Drafting-mode-view-alignment/td-p/40...), but this suggestion did not do what I'm looking for.
I want the default alignment to be "Inferred." How do I change this as a global setting for every drawing I'm working on.
It does not appear that this option is available as a Customer Default or otherwise. I also noticed that Dialog Memory does not retain "Inferred" as the last option used - it always resets back to "Hinge". So it does not look like you can set this as a global setting and it will have to be set every time.
Is your problem that your section view remains aligned when placement is set to Hinge? I can see that from NX 9 to NX 10 there was a change to the Section View dialog, as a result the default placement is now Hinge, whereas placement wasn't an option in NX 9, so the result in NX 9 was similar to using Inferred Placement in NX 10. As I mentioned, I couldn't find a preference, or Customer Default, to control this setting and it's unlikely that an upgrade to Teamcenter would have affected the behavior. If you truly suspect that there is a regression, please open an incident report with GTAC and they will investigate this in detail for you.
