Define the Length, Width and Heigth dimensions of block as shown in red box above. If your geometry coincides with an other geometry, you can use Boolean options for it.

The created block in Siemens NX.

Click on ‘OK’ or ‘Apply’ to create block as above in Siemens NX.

Select ‘Two Points and Height’ option for ‘Block’ command.

If you select the ‘Two Points and Height’ option for ‘Block’ command in Siemens NX, you need to specify the origin location of your block as shown by red arrow. Then you need to specify the second point that will be the X and Y location corner of the block as shown by blue arrow. Then you need to specify the height as in blue box.

The box is created like above.

Click on ‘OK’ or ‘Apply’ button to create the block with ‘Block’ command.

Select the ‘Two Diagonal Points’ option for ‘Block’ command in Siemens NX.

This is the last option that you can select from above pop up menu inside the ‘Block’ command in Siemens NX. You can specify the origin location as shown by blue arrow and the diagonal point location as shown by red arrow to create block in Siemens NX.

The block is created.

The block is created by defining the diagonal locations in ‘Block’ command.
