PMI Parallel to Screen.png

In NX 11.0.1 the NX PMI application was enhanced to support the display of PMI on a single annotation plane that does not rotate with the model. This enhancement provides improved interpretation and supports standards-compliant display for general notes and special notations placed on a model. Setting a PMI display instance to display Parallel to Screen Display is easy and can be done by accessing the setting via the MB3 menu or PMI Preference. An optional Lock Size and Position setting is also available to maintain the size and position of the PMI during pan and zoom operations. Support for single leaders was added in NX 12. 


The video below shows a brief demonstration of a typical use case where the new parallel to screen display improves interpretation when interrogating a model containing PMI. I look forward to any feedback you have on this enhancement or suggestions you might have to further enhance NX PMI.

Hi Dave,


I was wondering if there are any plans to include the parallel to screen option for things like Feature control, frames, Datum Feature Symbols or even dimensions.
