I'm a fairly new user to NX 10, but have around 6 years of experience of other CAD programs.
I'm a user coming from Inventor, and I am missing a very convenient command! Drives me crazy.
When I enter sketching mode, and the plane on which you are skething is partly, or completely hidden by another feature/body etc I want to quickly make the sketching plane as a section view.
The thing I want to do is described here: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/inventor-products/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/2014...
Is there a way to do this, or do I have to create an individual section view the "ordinary way" for every time I want to do this? In inventor you simply press F7 once in sketching mode.
Thanks for your quick reply.
This partly answers my question, but this to me is more like creating or changing a "traditional" section view.
I see now that I can keep a single plane and play around with it as a "sketching section view plane" which I am constantly editing to get the section view in my sketch plane for every sketch.
Is there any command or similar to automatically slice the graphics to my sketch plane without using the traditional section views?
Another method, instead of slicing would be to de-emphasis geometry not lying on the plane.
You can do this with the command toggle, Work Plane Emphasis.
Probably not switched on in any OOTB menu but you can get to it via Command Finder then add it to a ribbon bar.
