In this video, learn how to quickly find geometric data involving your part in critical areas and generate a text file into your data to cut design time in Siemens NX.
Quickly find geometric data involving your part in critical areas. Finding both principal moments, areas, and perimeters can be useful for more than just doing hand calculations.
Generating a text file and copying this data into a report saves time. Data keeping is increasingly important and having a confirmation of these values in a document may be needed.
This is a useful tool in NX that can allow you to validate FEA results. When running an FEA, it is always a smart idea to check with a hand calculation to know that your assumptions made for boundary conditions and loads are correct. Doing a hand calculation can also save time and is always preferred depending on the geometry.
