Siemens NX provides various kinds of patterning tool to pattern the features inside the Siemens NX. The whole patterning tools are explained in Mechanical Base. In this article we will explain creating helical shaped patterns from features in Siemens NX.
To make a helical pattern in Siemens NX, click on the Pattern Feature command in Siemens NX ribbon bar as shown by red arrow above.
After entering to the Pattern Feature command, select the feature that you want to pattern helically as shown by red arrow above.
After entering to the ‘Pattern Feature’ command in Siemens NX, select the feature to be patterned as shown by red arrow above.
Specify the direction vector for helical pattern as shown by green arrow in Siemens NX.
Specify the ‘Helix Size By’ section;
You can select and delete or suppress the instances individually as shown by red arrows and the blue box above. Click on OK and Apply as shown in red box above to complete the Helix Patterning.
So creating the helically patterned geometries in Siemens NX is very simple like that.
