I am working on 3D part, however, I would like to treat it as 2D paper and would like to get a "ruler" and measure the distance from the min(y) point to the max(y) on Y-axis as shown in the picture below. This can be done by the screen distance measurement function from NX but I would like to do this automatically.
The calculation can be done if I am able to determine min(Y) and max(Y) point3D coordinates and apply Abs2View/View2Abs. Any help is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Check if "Bounding Box" can be helpful to detemine the Ymax,Ymin values.
I don't know how to do it in context of the programming but you can give a try for this.
Just to clarify...
Do you wnat the max/min values of each solid in the context of the assembly, or the max/min values in the context of each piece part?
E.g. if you have a 1" dia sphere, located in the "piece part" with the center at (0,0,0)
You assemble that into an assembly, so the center is at (10,0,0)
For X, do you want min=-0.5 / max=0.5
or min=9.5 / max=10.5
