[NX 7.5]: Assembly Sequence Questions


Hi there,


I'm in charge for a huge assembly animation task (~ 200 parts) at my job and need some tips to ensure a high quality of the upcoming assembly sequence.


In a video on YT you can see that its possible to show / hide single parts during the sequence so that each part appears immediatly before being assembled and not before. This video was done for NX 9. Do I have this show / hide option in NX 7.5 as well and if yes - how do I find and use it?

Another important question to me is how to increase the quality of the sequence video that NX is exporting (resolution, sharpness, color display, etc.)?

Thank you very much in advance for you help!

Yes, you can do the same thing in NX 7.5.


As for the quality of any movies made using Assembly Sequencing, they are limited to the current screen resolution and color quality.

Download this codec:


Select "Tools > Movie > Settings" and change the Compression from "Microsoft Video 1" to "TechSmith Screen Capture Codec".  You should find that movies captured using "Tools > Export to Movie" in Assembly Sequence (and "Tools > Movie") are of much higher quality.  The downside is that you will have to supply the codec along with the movie for anyone else to watch it.

Have you tried turning on Object Names?


Each component in an assembly is labeled by default and can be access via the 'General' Component Properties (right mouse click a component and choose "Properties > General Tab > Name)".  This is known as the COMPONENT NAME attribute.  This value defaults to the file name, but you can edit the name as required. 


This attribute can be displayed by selecting "File > Preferences > Visualization > Names/Borders tab" and changing 'Show Object Names' to something other than 'Off'.  One turned on, the COMPONENT NAMEs are visible in the graphics display.  If you're not happy with the placement, edit the Component Properties and select 'Specify name location' at the end of the Name text field.


I have verified that once turned on, the names remain displayed during Assembly Sequencing.


Hope this helps
