We explained the whole quick 3D geometry creation tools of Siemens NX in Mechanical Base. In this article, we will show you how to create quick cylinder geometries with ‘Cylinder’ command in Siemens NX with a very basic example below.
To open the ‘Cylinder’ command in Siemens NX, click on pop up menu called ‘More’ as shown by red arrow above, then click on ‘Cylinder’ command as in red box above.
After entering into the ‘Cylinder’ command in Siemens NX, the first option is ‘Axis, Diameter and Height’ option as shown in red box. So you need to define a vector that will be the axis of cylinder as shown by red arrow. And specify the point that will be the starting point of axis of cylinder as shown by blue arrow. Then define the diameter and height of the cylinder as in blue box.
If your geometry coincides with other geometries, you can use Boolean options in Siemens NX.
Click on ‘OK’ or ‘Apply’ to create your cylinder in Siemens NX.
If you select the second option of ‘Cylinder’ command which is ‘Arc and Height’ inside the blue box, you need to select a arc skecth in Siemens NX as shown by blue arrow. This is the base of the created cylinder. Then define the height value of your cylinder from red box above.
Click on ‘OK or ‘Apply’ to create the cylinder in Siemens NX.
The use of ‘Cylinder’ command to create 3D cylinder geometries in Siemens NX is very easy like above.
