Siemens NX

Creating a New File

There are several options for creating a new part.

  • Click on the new button in the Ribbon Bar
  • Click on the new button in Predict Commands Group.
  • Click “File => New” (on the top left of the screen)
  • Click “Menu => File => New”
  • Press <Ctrl + N>

New Part Dialogue Box:

1- Units: You can change units as mm or inch from the dialogue box opened. If you select all both mm and inch, all of the inch and mm templates shown in the command screen.

2- Name: You can type new part name here. Also, you can select the folder that the NX part file will be created. If you select a folder from the name box, the folder path (3) will change automatically.
Unlike other programs, NX saves files at startup. That’s because you should give importance and be careful at startup.

3- Folder: You can select or change the folder that part file will save.

Unlike other cad programs, the NX part file can switch to part, assembly and drafting files. NX files have one constant extension (*.prt). That’s because sometimes it might be hard to find assembly and/or drafting files. I write prefix to files for defining them. For example assy for main assembly file, asm for sub-assemblies, draft for drafting files
(ex: assy_electronic-box, asm_card, asm_connector, draft_box)
