Extrude Command In Siemens NX®(Illustrated Expression)

In this article, we will show you how to use Extrude command in Siemens NX® and you will learn the whole features of the Siemens NX® Extrude command. As you know extrusion process is the basis of 3D geometry creation command in general CAD software as Siemens NX®. With the Extrude command, you can obtain the base 3D geometry in Siemens NX, then you can add other features to it.

How To Use Extrude Command In Siemens NX®?

Extrude Command In Siemens NX®(Illustrated Expression).

To make an extrusion in Siemens NX®, you need to click on the Extrude command as shown by the blue arrow above.

Select the profile sketch for Extrude command.

After entering the command of Extrude in Siemens NX®, you need to select the primary profile sketch as shown by the blue arrow above. You can select the set of curves as shown in the blue box.

By default, the vector of Extrude command in Siemens NX® is normal to the sketch surface. You can choose another direction vector as shown by the blue arrow above for the Extrude command in Siemens NX®.

Select an Extrusion starting method.

In the limits section of the Siemens NX® Extrude command, you can simply enter the starting offset value. If you enter a value to the start section of the Limits tab, the extrusion process will start from an offset basis from the sketch plane.

If you select the Symmetric Value from the blue box, the extrusion process will be done in two directions of the sketch plane.

Until Selected: The extrusion process will start from the selected feature from the drawing scheme.

Until Extended: The extrusion process starts from the selected face or plane.

Select an Extrusion ending method.

The same options for Start in Extrude command are also valid for the End option as shown by the blue box above.

Enter Start and End value directly as shown in the blue box above.

Enter Start and End value directly as shown in the blue box above.

You can enter the Start and End value directly from the blue box above. Also, you can adjust the Boolean options;

None: Default option for boolean in Siemens NX® Extrude command.

Unite: If the created 3D geometry from the extrusion process intersects with other 3D geometry in the drawing scheme, you can select Unite for boolean then select the other geometry to Unite two of them in Siemens NX®.

Subtract: If the created 3D geometry from the extrusion process intersects with other 3D geometry in the drawing scheme, you could carve out the other 3D sketch by using the obtained extrusion 3D geometry by selecting this.

Intersect: If the created 3D geometry from the extrusion process intersects with other 3D geometry in the drawing scheme, you can only obtain the intersection geometry of two of these geometries.

Draft angle value.

You can also enter a draft angle as From Start Limit that you just enter an angle value to obtain geometries as shown by the red arrow above. Also if you have a place or section inside the obtained geometry, you can select From section from the red box above to start your drafting angle from this section inside the Extruded geometry.

Adjust offset values for the Extrude command.

You can enter an offset value to obtain geometries as shown by the red arrow above. You need to enter the offset start and end values in Siemens NX®. You can also obtain Offset structure as Two-Sided, Single-Sided, or Symmetric from the red box option above.

You can obtain solid or sheet structures.

If you want to obtain a sheet structure as shown by the red arrow above from Extrude command in Siemens NX®, you need to adjust the Body Type option from Solid to Sheet as shown by the red box above. When you are done with the all options of Extrude command click on OK or Apply to complete in Siemens NX®.

Conclusion

The use of the Extrude command in Siemens NX® is very simple like this.
