Hello All,

 

Can any one tell me how to create the spline in NX using the coordinates from excel sheet?

In addition to it, I would like to know how to modify the same spline points by modifying the excel coordinates?

Am using NX11 this is fyi....

 

Thanks in advance for your answer.

You can import the points as datum points ( use import->points from file)
After that use fit curve to make a spline through these points

Hello Ruud van den Brand,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

by the steps you told we will be only able to create the points, since the point co-ordinates will become unassociative. I want it to be associative with the excel file. If I modify the co-ordinates in the excel means it should get updated in the NX.

 

Thanks in advance for your reply....

You can also link a excel into the expressions of NX. If I am correct ita ug_read_excel, you can Find this in the formule builder.

This way you can link an expression to a specified excel and specified cell

If yes, can you just send a vedio of creating the points?

Had a similar question a few years ago...  I've attached a ZIP archive with three different ways to approach this.  One is an associative Excel way.  One other uses expression files, and the third stuffs all of the data directly into list expressions.  The Excel version is the slowest, just because of the round trip to the external application, but it certainly works.

Movies are included in this package.  :-)

 

Let me know if you have any questions about how this is put together, okay?

 

Thanks!
