is there any way to include (in whole view) center lines ?
The problem is that I generated views without the center -line preference
and now I have to include.
I know I could use Center Mark ,but I would like not to have to select any hole
to include these center -lines.
Solved! Go to Solution.
There is an 'Automatic Centerline' option that will add centers to the whole view.
It is the last option in the pull down menu.
It will add centerlines not center marks, though.
I don't know how to change the default, if you even can.
There is an option in the center line drop down to achive that. Click Center Line drop down > Automatic Centerline, then choose the view for which you need to generate centre lines. This will add centre lines to all the circles and cyclinders in the view.
I would like to know how to show a centerline for a blind hole in a part drawing in NX 11
In other words the blind hole and centerline is visible on the face which it is made on. If I want the to use the center of this hole for a dimension on the blind side of the hole in the part how do I create the center or project the center on the view of the part of the blind side face
Do you have hidden lines enabled in the view? If so, you can insert a centerline along the hidden line representation of your blind hole.
I would like to know if you want to have center line for dimensioning.
If you want for dimensioning purpose, you can have a sketch line named "CL" included in properties on your model.
While dimensioning through linear dimesion using cyclindrical method, just type CL in name selection and it will automatically detect center line and you can just select the 2nd object.
@Ravi369 you used to be able to do something like that, but it's been so long since I've worked on large cylindrical parts, I don't recall the details. Since Siemens changed the centerline tools though, I'm not even sure the old terminology would work, or if the same technique carried over.
Actually...look at the Use Baseline option:
