Text in Siemens NX Modeling

You can create text in the 3D model in the Siemens NX Modeling application.

Text can be created:

  • on a plane at a specified point, direction, angle
  • on a curve
  • on a surface

The “Text” command.is used to write text in the NX Model

  • Curve Ribbon Bar => Base Group => Text
  • Menu => Insert => Curve => Tool

To create Text on a plane:

  1. Start the “Text” command
  2. Change the creation method to “Planar
  3. Write text into the text box in the “Text Properties” tab.
  4. Specify a point in the graphics window.
  5. A preview of the text will be seen in the graphics window.
  6. You can change text position, direction, or angle by dragging handles in the graphics window.
  7. Adjust text length and height by changing the values in the Text frame => Dimensions tab of the dialog box. (Also you can drag handles in the graphics window)

  3. Write text into the text box in the “Text Properties” tab.
  4. Select Curve in the graphics window.
  5. A preview of the text will be seen in the graphics window.
  6. If you want to change the text direction, click on the “Reverse Direction” icon in the graphics window or click twice on the direction arrow on the text
  7. You can change the position of the text on the curve by dragging the ball handle in the graphics window or by changing the value in the “% Parameter” in the “Text Frame” tab.
