With the release of NX 12.0.2 Siemens PLM Software have made enhancements to the Sketch Task Environment to enable easier viewing of the active sketch geometry and sketch plane. These enhancements remove the clutter of background geometry. The new sketch features are available whether sketching is a single part or working within the context of an assembly.
New enhancements include:
Sketch Emphasis (NX 12.0.1) – emphasizes sketch plane by dimming the work part geometry and background assembly components
Section – sections the model to the sketch plane to remove foreground objects
Slice – displays only the sketch plane
Auto Reverse Section Direction – section is maintained during rotation; dimensions and constraints redisplay based on viewing angle.
Right Mouse Button (as shown above) while in the Sketch Task gives immediate access to new functionality.
The video below shows the use of this new fuctionality.
