there are some limitations and are used on big assembly.
I would like that NX create Smart lightweight views when assembly is upper then 500 parts (customized setting). This options is only available on wizard creation view and not in base view.
Thank you! I have been testing a bit with NX11 using smart lightweight views by default just to make sure this option is checked when I want to create a view from a large assembly or very complex parts, so I save time. I have not made many test, but so far it works fine with the parts I have tested, I can place dimesions and make sections properly. I would like to know what limitations may I expect before creating "tons" of views with this method.
There is some information in the Help collection that summarizes the differences between an Exact and a Lightweight drafting view. For the most part, they behave the same. Most of the difference is with minor rendering limitations in lightweight views.
Here's a link to the information.
