All new in NX 12.0.2 features enhancements to shipbuilding. Design and manufacturing welds allow creation of joints in design that can be used in manufacturing. This also allows manufacturing to modify the weld joints without modifying the design weld. Lastly, this will allow the manufacturing of welds to be updated when the design weld changes.
There are two modes in which you can design and manufacture these weld joints. BVR mode and in 4GD mode.
In BVR mode welds can be created in detail design and cloned in manufacturing to support edge preparation and XML out. Cloned welds can be modified without modifying the design weld
With 4GD mode you can have a managed attribute group (MAG) on the design weld joint which allows adjustments to the weld joint for manufacturing without modifying or revising the design weld. Also important to note that in this mode that a separate manufacturing weld is not created.
