Today we will be looking at the all new 3D Box Selection in NX 12. With this tool you are able to support workflows with complex designs as well as large assemblies. These can be beneficial in digital mockups, design reviews, or design in context.


The 3D Box Selection tool is very similar to the Region Selection tool. This box provides control of the selection depth. There are options to control the selection volume size, and orienation as well. The box will show what is selected vs. what is not selected. You can also select your geometry in the 3D space and the tool will provide selection depth control.

Of course, rather than me explaining the new feature to you, it is always best to try it out for yourself!
