In this post, @rinkesh_patel shows you how to add fake dimensions and edit entire dimensions in NX 9. 


In real-life industrial design, sometimes we have to change fixed or already designed dimensions, mostly odd dimensions of sheet-metal due to bends, and that is possible only when you calculate the bends and make a flat sheet.


But every design software has one possibility so we can change the fixed dimensions by fake dimensions, so the problems occuring in production can be eliminated.


This video tutorial is based on the system of Indian Companies. I admit we don't have CNCs or High Accurate machines at smaller workshops. So when it comes to manufacturing by workers, we need to remove odd dimensions from drafting only for those who can work easily. Smiley Happy
