Creating a custom template in Siemens NX 11 (with caption and audio narration)

 

Transcription of the Video

  1. Open a 'Templates' folder in Siemens NX 11 Software on your computer.
  2. Copy the 'model-plain-1-inch-template' file.
  3. Paste the file in Document folder.
  4. Open this file in Siemens NX 11.
  5. A Trimetric view is set by default as a home view, so I have chosen 'Isometric View'.
  6. Activate the 'Drafting Preferences' command.
  7. Set 'Full-Size Fraction' button in the Numerical Display option.
  8. Choose 1/16 from the Fraction Denominator list.
  9. Select Period from the Decimal Delimiter list.
  10. Click OK and save the template file.
  11. Delete the main template file.
  12. Copy the new saved template file and paste in the 'Templates' folder.
  13. Open new inch part file and check the result.
  14. Dimensions are shown in fraction due to setting in template.

Comparative Study

Method to write dimension in fraction under NX software, first write real number of the digit, then place the symbol of '+', and finally write the rational number of the digit. (e.g., to write 2 and 1/2-----specify by 2+1/2).

But, if you want to write dimension in fraction under Autodesk Inventor software, open a new file in Inventor, first write the real number of the digit, then leave a space and finally write the rational number of the digit. (e.g., to write 2 and 1/2-----specify by 2 1/2).
