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

How to Edit Elements Offset from Edges | CATIA V5

In this Tech Tip, you will learn to use the Offset Definition function to edit the definition of elements and offset them from geometry to make them external to the sketch.

Some key points to take away from this Tech Tip are:
– This function only works on sketch elements that are offset from the part, not elements in the active sketch.
– When editing the offset, you may need to exit and re-enter the sketch to update the offset.

Know the Difference between Fix and Default constraints in CREO Parametric Assembly Design

A constraint in computer-aided design (CAD) software is a limitation or restriction imposed by a designer or an engineer upon geometric properties of an entity of a design model that maintains its structure as the model is manipulated.

In this Tech Tip, we will explain about the difference between ‘Fix’ and ‘Default’ type constraints in Assembly Design using Creo Parametric. Apparently these two types of constraints look similar as they both make the model fully constrained, but we will see two examples wherein we can understand the distinct difference between these two constraints.

How to Define Connection Elements for Weldments and Structural Systems | SOLIDWORKS

Recently we posted “How To Create Miter Joint Trim for Weldments in SOLIDWORKS” in which we know that Welded Joints aka “Weldments” is one of the process used to assemble the components/parts. In this blog you will know how to define Connection Elements for weldments and structural systems in SOLIDWORKS, and then insert them into a structural part.
