How to use Multi-View Layout in MBD | NX 1953 Series

Many times it is required to view a designed model from all directions under one window to understand its visualizations.

In NX “Model-Based Definition (MBD)” we give Dimensions, Annotations, or some other tools/commands that need different views to apply different functions.

Users can have the option to see all the Dimensions, Annotations, or some other tools/commands to be applied in different views under one window and that solution is covered under the “Multi-View Layout” option.

Follow the procedure video or detailed steps to know how to apply “Multi-View Layout”
