Detail View Enhancement in NX 11.0.1

There is only so much space on a drawing. It has to convey all of the important manufacturing information about the part and its geometry, but it also has to fit a standard sheet size. For large or complex parts, this is especially difficult, as the sheer number of views and their associated annotation takes up so much space that it can be difficult to fit the necessary information on a standard sheet.

One way of saving space is to reduce the amount of unnecessary lines and data that you show. For instance, detailed views don’t really need to show an entire boundary; the important part is where the boundary intersects with the model geometry.

 

In the past, this was a time-consuming, manual process. In NX 11.0.1 however, you have the option of showing only the intersection areas when creating or modifying a view.

 

New "Clip Boundary" drafting preferences can be used to create partial boundaries when you create detail views.

If 'Clip Boundary' preference is not set in the drafting prefrences, it can also be set in the individual detail view settings dialog.
