NX 11 section view automatically create a hinge / anchor ?

Genius

Hello

Where in NX 11 preferences / cust.defaults is the choice to remove automatic section view hinges / anchors ?

View Alignment -> List -> Hinge.

- I have imported cust.defaults from NX9 already which did not help.

- Now in NX 11 it creates a hinge automatically on section views.

are the settings also in your template part?

some settings are not taking over from the customer defaults because the also can be set on your template preferences.

Hi

I found related setting from Preference and Customer Default.
[..> View > Workflow > Alignment - Associative]
But this setting is only for Project View (According to NX Help Documentation.)

Actually, you can turn off from Section View Dialogue (and Project View too).
[View Origin - Associative Alignment]
And if you use "Dialogue Memory" setting, this setting will be retained to next sesssion
(Regardless of Preference setrting).

 

PS. I tested it with NX10.0.3.5, so it can be not true for NX11.

I had to replace the 3 year leased computer and the newly installed NX 11 does this thing again... I forgot how I disabled the section's hinge previously ?

 

Could someone refresh my memory and give info how to remove the hinge=anchor from the section projection ?

Select Section View > RMB > View Alignment.

I now manually delete the Hinge by going to
Section -> RMB3 -> View Alignment -> List -> Hinge.

Any Customer Default to choose to disable section hinges ?
