Same model name but two variations ?

Genius

Hi

In NX 9.0 can I create a 3D-model which has two(2) variations for it ?

  • I have an insulation wire model that in 1st) assembly bends to another direction and in 2nd) assembly bends to another direction ?
  • I would like to use the same name for the insulation. Flat-pattern is the same only difference is just the bend direction.

you can use the "deformable part" feature for this.

So I create all the different extrude variations and then supress/hide them in model.
Then go to: Modeling -> Define deformable part.

Any other easier way ?

You need to create the model in a way, that allows you to define a feature, example using a guide curve, that when that guide curve is "swapped" the model updates.  In your various assemblies, you would define what to use as this guide, so the component deforms to the right, or left, or some other variation.

You can use 'Reference Sets'. Create both geometries in same part and define two reference sets (eg. Left and Right). While adding part in the assembly, select the required reference set or just add part in the assembly and use replace reference set.

create your part. and the start "Menu>Tools>define defromable part"2017-04-21 09_06_23-NX 9 - Modeling - [model4.prt].jpg

 

save the part.

 

Add the part twice in an assembly

right click the component and choose "deform"

for each component you can enter different lenghts/angles (depending what you defined before) althought it is the same part
