Siemens Experimenter Siemens Experimenter

A new robust offset functionality has been introduced in NX 12 to offset any complex shapes (surfaces, facet, solid bodies, etc) into a convergent body as output. The output geometries produced here can be used in downstream processes such as tool design.

  • Eliminates spikes, cuts and steps from the resultant output facets
  • Users can input offset distance and direction to control the offset


This new function can be accessed from Edit->Facet Body -> Offset and replaces Rought Offset function available in releases prior to NX 12
