NX12 lines and arcs associative icon grayed out.

Hello,

NX12.0.0 MP1

Anybody knows why the associative icon in the Insert -> Curve -> Lines and Arcs -> Associative icon is grayed out?

 

When I try to create a new line point-point with the above command the associative icon is grayed out and the line is always associative. If I need to remove the associativity I need to go to edit -> feature -> remove parameters. Very anoying.

 

Regards

Frank.

Probably an oversight - I'd call GTAC and report it or see if it's already been reported. I understand with all of the "specialized" line/arc commands without true dialogs that this might be very annoying but one should still be able to create most curves using only the "plain" line or circle/arc dialogs, which should contain associativity checkboxes.

Yes it is grayed out.

But in NX11 (11.0.2.7 MP5) there is no problem with it. I would suggest to report this to GTAC.

 

Customer Defaults, Curves > Curve Associativity

You can toggle off option 'Line, Arc/Circle, Lines and Arcs' so that lines created will be non-associatve.
