Hello (NX 9)

 

How to fastly switch between MODEL<->DRAWING mode ?

Can I program F1-F12 to a quick button or something like that ? How to do it ?

I have 3D mouse SpacePilot Pro it has a lot of buttons can any of those perform such actions ?

 

Now I have to go to APPLICATION-> MODELING or DRAFTING and I do it 50 times a day or so :-(

Need simple one button solution

Thanks

Control+M switches to modeling, Control+Shift+D switches to drafting. Program your buttons on the SpacePilot to put those keystrokes in and it will work.

In NX 11, it will automatically switch from drafting to modeling as you switch between the drawing and the assembly.

(assuming you are running the ribbon interface)

If there is something that is NOT on the "home" tab for an application, and I reference it frequently, I add it to a border bar (in my case usually the left border bar).

This way I don't have to constantly pick ribbon bar "tabs"
