In this article, we will show you how to create a Point Set in Siemens NX. Pointing along curved edges can be sometimes important. Because other features that you will create generally depend on these created point sets in Siemens NX. So, You will learn how to create respective point sets along a selected curve or edges in Siemens NX. You will see, that the use of the Point Set command in Siemens NX is very simple.
How to Create Point Sets in Siemens NX?
Firstly, to create a point set, you need to click on the pop-up menu beneath the Datum Plane command as the red arrow. And then click on the Point Set command as shown in the red box in Siemens NX®.
After that, you need to select curves or edges in Siemens NX as the red arrow box.
Parameters in Point Set Command
Number Of Points: This is the value of points that you want to create on the curve or edge that you selected in Siemens NX®.
Start Percentage: This is where the first point on the curve that you select is placed. For example, if you enter a value of 20, the first point on the curve will place at 20% length away from the starting point of the curve.
Select Object for Start Percentage: Also you can select an object for starting percentage that we expressed above in Siemens NX®.
End Percentage: This is the ending percentage that has the same logic as Start Percentage. The percentage length of the curve that you selected in Siemens NX® that your last point will place on.
Select Object for End Percentage: You can select an end percentage object with the same logic as Select-Object for Start Percentage.
For example, we entered the number of points as 4, the start percentage as 30, and the end percentage as 80, you can see the starting and ending points of the created points on the selected curve as shown by the red and blue arrows above. After finishing the entering parameters to the Point Set command, click on OK or Apply as shown by the blue box above.
So, this is simple like that in Siemens NX®.
