Applying PMI Cylindrical Dimensions using intersection curve

PLM World Member Creator PLM World Member Creator

Hi All, 

I tried to create a PMI Cylinderical Dimension using intersection curve (Refer Attached Image). During creation of PMI, I am selecting the user defined plane XZ and select the intersection curves start point. But the diameter value has shown in the PMI is upside down / mirrored position. 

Kindly do the needful to fix this issue.

Hi @quest_mani,

I have checked this in NX 11 (11.0.2.7). It works fine for me.pmi_CYL.JPG

1. Orientation->Select 'User Defined Plane'

2. select XZ-Plane and create the dimension

 

Check the dimension orientation now.

Hi,

What if you choose XZ plane in the top options itself?

Is there any specific reason you are using the User Defined csys?

 

Looks like the csys directions you choose are directed in other directions.

Works!pmi_CYL_1.JPG

 

Can you share that particular part file?

Another option is to add a PMI Section View, then create your Cylindrical dimension in the view.  This is my preferred method because you often have multiple cylindrical dimensions, not just one.  Also, the PMI Section Views automatically transfer to the JT file, so you can view them in Vis.

One note of caution about applying PMI to curves in a PMI section view:

In some cases, the PMI section curves can not be reused by downstream applications. If you intend to reuse the PMI in your model, it is recommended that you create associative model curves instead of using the PMI section curves. And then attach your PMI to the associated model curves. Make sure to include these associated curves in your Model reference set, or other valid reference set, when exporting the PMI in a JT file.

U will get same result of u select x-z plane for the above example. Actually by selecting plane we are choosing the plane in which dimension will be placed . U can select any plane as per your requirement.

Yes. That's correct. The Csys orientation is incorrect as it's shown in the image above.

It's about which axis that we are setting as horizontal & vertical. So I am setting the horizontal & vertical axis explicitly. Now it's working fine as intent.
