NX12 has been a well-received release from Sheet Metal users and this is the fourth in a series of articles highlighting what’s new.
The basic building block for sheet metal is the Tab command that now comes with some valuable improvements:
Supports sketch with internal loops to create cut-outs
Secondary Tab also supports sketch with multiple outer loops
Target body selection for Secondary Tab
These improvements reduce design time, number of features and allowing internal cut-outs significantly improves the efficiency of this base sheet metal feature.
Support Base Tab with bends
For each bend, user can input Inset, bend radius and neutral factor
Can constrain to, or include curves from reference faces in the sketch while creating brackets
Now, users can create associative sheet metal brackets using assembly references with multiple bends. This improved design workflow, reduces the number of features, enabling fast bracket design in-context with associativity.
