Siemens NX sketching is the most comprehensive sketch tool in CAD realm. You know that the sketching is very important to obtain required 3D geometries. So you can learn Siemens NX sketching in Mechanical Base with lots of articles. In this article, we explained drawing ‘Profiles’ in Siemens NX sketching, with a very basic example below.
How To Draw Profiles In Siemens NX Sketching?
In an active Siemens NX sketch, you can draw sketch entities with ‘Profile’ command. Click on ‘Profile’ command as shown by red arrow above.
After entering into the ‘Profile’ command in Siemens NX, you can start to draw line segments by clicking on drawing scheme in Siemens NX.
- Object Type: The first option for object type as shown by green arrow above, draws line segments. Of you select the second option, you can draw respective arc as shown by red arrow.
- Input Mode: The first option on ‘Input Mode’ above, gives the ability of drawing line and arc sections by entering ‘X’ and ‘Y’ coordinates as shown by blue arrow above. It draws the segment up to entered X and Y value. In second option, you can directly enter a length value to draw line or arc segment.
To finish drawing with ‘Profile’ command, press ‘Esc’ from your keyboard.
You can draw your sketch entities by using these options according to your own requirements in Siemens NX sketching. The ‘Profile’ command in very useful to draw respective line and arc segments in Siemens NX sketching and it is very easy to use.
