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 underRead more
Recently we posted “How to use Auto Dimension & Driven Dimension | AUTODESK INVENTOR TIPS” and now we are sharing two new tips from our “120 Autodesk Inventor Tips” vault.
Our Autodesk Subject Matter Expert from i GET IT Learning created these 120 short tech tips to present at Autodesk University. Read more…Read more
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.
In this Tech Tip, we will explain the practical use of ‘Feature Renaming’ functionality used in Creo Parametric 7.0 This is a generic Tech Tip and though we are showing it for PTC Creo Parametric 7.0, this methodology is applicable to all CAD software…Read more
The Objective is to have the ability to return a model to a previous state by reversing operations. There are some CAD softwares that do not allow this, so it can be very frustrating. The following video and procedure will explain the process…Read more
In parts and assemblies, you can define coordinate systems by entering absolute numeric values for position and orientation. These values define the position relative to the local origin, and not the global origin.
To know how these numerical defined coordinate systems works follow below steps and videos.Read more

The Command Finder is now referred to as Search and can search for Commands, Customer Defaults, Preferences, Tips from the Discovery Center, and Check-Mate tests. Follow below steps to Know how use Search Enhancement – The Search Command is in the top right corner of the NX window and press Enter, NX displays search results in the following tabs inRead more
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.Read more
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.Read more
