Hi! Does anyone know of a way to associatively measure the principle moments of inertia (Ixc, Iyc, Izc) of a body? I’ve been able to use Knowledge Fusion to get an NX expression of them, but the values are expressed as a vector and I can’t seem to use them as individual values in other formulas.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Once you've got the point or vector into an expression, you can use localx(), localy() and localz() [or nx_x(), nx_y(), and nx_z(), starting in NX 8.5] to extract individual components of the point or vector into a number expression.
We do this automatically when we check the “Create individual coordinate expressions” during some of the newest measurement operations:
Does that help?
