Hi,

we have switch from NX 10 to NX 11 and now when I control or I put flat pattern in a view I see two line more, indicated in the image attached. Before to deselect in the customer default and in all drafting templates I would like to understand what they serve.Sheet Metal preferences.png

Thank you...

Hi Cubralibre,

 

but these linetypes are already in NX 10 present. If you don't need them - ignore them :-) So do we...

I agree these things are not (good) explained in help. You can take a look in explanation for the Bend command https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/nx/11.0.2/nx_help#uid:xid1128417:index_nx_sheet_metal:i...

The pictures there could be better. But maybe if you see them, read the text and you play with it, you will get an idea.

 

Best Regards,

Thomas

Ho @cubalibre00

If you do not understand the purpose of inner (IML) and outer mold lines (OML; sometimes referred to as heal line) then you can ignore them.  They are generally used in aerospace applications.

 

The reason they have appeared in NX11 is because we enhanced NX sheet metal to add them for every bend (rather than just advanced features).  They were turned ON by default before NX11 so when you open a part with a flat pattern created before NX11 you will see an extra toggle in Settings 'Generate OML and IML; just turn this off.

 

I hope that helps.
