PMI Center Mark in detailed view on drawing

Hello guys, 

 

I have a problem with PMIs in NX 11.

I need to transfer PMIs to a drawing. Is there a way to "break" a PMI center mark in a detailed view? Because I only need one part of the center mark and the actual center will be way out of the detailed view (see screenshot).

Unfortunately I can't find a way to limit the display to the actual view boundary.

A simple centerline would help but there is no geometry to display it in this view.

 

Is there any way to solve this issue?

 

Cheers

Dominik

After placing the view on the drawing and inheriting the PMI center line, you should be able to define the view boundary using a manual rectangle as in the movie below.

hello @Abeinjapan,

 

 

thanks for you reply. But this won't help in this case.

 

I assume you used the view settings PMI->From Model view?

 

I have to use

PMI-> Align to Drawing (show PMI on drawing), as the PMI dimensions need to be placed over and outside of the view boundaries (detailed view borders).

 

In this case the PMI Center Mark wont be cut off. That's my exact problem.

 

Any other idea? Smiley Happy

The only thing I can think of that's not a particularly elegant solution would be to hide (don't inherit, blank or move to hidden layer) the inherited center mark and then create a new 2D centerline to the appropriate size by selecting available control points from the extracted edges.
