PMI table.pngModel Based Definition adoption is increasing and as such, the ability to capture all design and manufacturing data in the model is crucial. NX provides a number of PMI objects that help document and consume the model design and manufacturing intent. New to NX 12 is the ability to create and edit tables in the PMI application. A PMI table is a full fledge PMI object with all the properties and behaviors of PMI annotation.


Capabilities include:


  • Configurable and customizable settings
  • Supports applicable PMI behavior such as update reading direction, display through, resize and parallel to screen
  • Ability to embed associative references
  • Edit using the integrated spreadsheet
  • Can be exported to JT for downstream consumption 

This video shows a brief demonstration of the new PMI Table capability in NX. I look forward to any feedback you have on this enhancement or suggestions you might have to further enhance NX PMI.

What controls the default table? Can this be customized in the defaults to point to a template table, or does it come in as a default table?
