You can use Rib Command in NX to add a thin-wall rib or rib network to a solid body by extruding an intersecting planar section.


Ribs are created based on a planar section of curves. The section can be any combination of curves.


  1. A single open curve with no other curves’ endpoint connected
  2. A single closed curve or spline
  3. Connected curves may be open or closed
  4. Y-junctions


In this NX Quick Tips video, I show you some new rib construction techniques in NX 9.
