Hello @yeqiong,

 

You are correct, history free mode is no longer available since NX 11.0. There is no way to turn this back on.

 

What you still can do, is use "Remove Parameters". Gives you a "dumb" solid again.

 

Kind regards,


Dennis

Legacy parts with History Free Mode are maintained but you cannot create any new parts using this method.

Does that mean if you use templates from NX 10 and prior you'll still have history free option?

 

Personally I don't use history free mode, but I have had a few users who did.

No it does not. You only will see HF mode if it was set in a part and saved. If you open in NX 11 you will then see it. However if you change it to History Mode you will not be able go back to HF mode unless you do an undo before saving.

I have always been very critical of this mode, since his debut in NX6 has gradually evolved losing its initial characteristics.
I filled entire threads in Italy, where I work, trying to explain the difference between direct modeling and synchronous modeling.
I also had many doubts about the finality of this mode seeing how it was treated by the same Siemens in two different ways with SE and NX.

Destian,

I believe the decision was made to remove HF mode because we added most of the functionality such as "Section Edit" in History mode and that a single  fully parameterised, feature based approach was more consistent and a better workflow.
