Design: Extract Virtual Tube Centerline

Community Manager Community Manager
Community Manager

New to the latest release of NX features the ability to extract a virtual tube centerline. With this tube_centerline_virtual_curve.pngenhancement you can create a new centerline or reconstruct a missing centerline as a curve feature through a circular body shaped like a tube or a hose. It's important to note that tube centerlines are typically needed for design and manufacturing processes. 

 

What's new?

  • Multiple valid input surface types which include cylindrical, toroidal, and b-spline
  • Output produces lines, arcs, splines, respectively

 

See here for a demo of this functionality:
