NX part files can contain, reference, and link to spreadsheet data. This is often used to define iterations or multiple configurations of a design such as Pattern features, Part Families, etc.
Methods such as Patterns generally retain the spreadsheet data within the feature definition and not the part file as in the case of Part Families.
This article discusses the application and use of spreadsheet driven data from both perspectives. Spreadsheet Overview The Spreadsheet serves as an advanced expression editor for NX hybrid modeling thus providing a seamless transfer of conceptual model data between NX and the spreadsheet. This section focuses specifically on the spreadsheet extensions and applications in NX and is intended to be a supplement to the standard spreadsheet documentation, which can be viewed in the NX Documentation Set.
The spreadsheet consists of three main session applications: A basic Expression Editor. You can edit and modify cells; change color, captions, and text; or even import or export spreadsheets that could have originated Use of fea siemens nx 7 5 a PC. Gateway Spreadsheet The Gateway spreadsheet is activated in current application modes except for Modeling.
NX will start a copy of Xess, or Microsoft Excel on Windows, and make connections to it automatically. Messages on the status line inform you of the progress made toward connecting with the spreadsheet.
If there is a copy of the spreadsheet already running on your display that can accept connections, then NX uses that copy without invoking another instance of the spreadsheet. If there is already a spreadsheet saved in the part, then that spreadsheet will be opened with the application that created it Xess or Excel regardless of the default spreadsheet set in the spreadsheet preferences.
Remember that the NX specific version of Xess, xessu, cannot be started from the command line. NX will start a copy of the spreadsheet and make connections to it automatically. If there is a copy of the spreadsheet already running on your display that can accept connections, then NX will use that copy without invoking another instance of the spreadsheet.
If there is already a spreadsheet saved in the part, it will be opened with the application that created it either Xess or Excelregardless of the default spreadsheet set in its preferences.
Pattern Features With the exception of the Reference Layout, a Spreadsheet option is available for all other layouts in the Pattern dialog. This allows the user to drive the design of the duplicated feature s to be driven by spreadsheet data.
Once the feature to duplicate has been selected and the Layout requirements have been satisfied, the Use Spreadsheet option will become active. NX allows the access of spreadsheet data directly from an outside file. There are two ways to do this, depending on what format you want.
A listing window reports the success or failure of the imported expressions: This process allows outside spreadsheet data in. With the use of the spreadsheet and expressions functions discussed above, the NX user has the ability to reuse mathematical values, formulae, expressions, equations, and even character strings both inside and outside of an NX part file.
This functionality is practically identical when working with assembly or drawing files as well. However, these practices do not develop any associativity or linking between the data within the NX part and that or the spreadsheet or expression file.
Procedure for linking a value in a spreadsheet outside of a part file to an internal expression: Specify a Spreadsheet icon 7.
In the Function Arguments dialog box, click Specify a spreadsheet. Navigate to the desired spreadsheet and click OK. Verify the value of the expression and click OK.
Platforms On Windows, you can migrate spreadsheet data from Xess to Excel and vice versa. You only need access to the spreadsheet to which you are migrating. Similarly, migrating spreadsheet data from Excel to Xess requires only Xess which also means that Exceed must be present.
Before You Begin Before you begin, make a copy of the part containing the old spreadsheet data. Keep the copy until you verify that the new spreadsheet data is correct.Press Release Issued by Siemens and HP Siemens' NX and Solid Edge software deliver support for full color 3D printing capabilities through HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers.

open jobs for Siemens nx cad. I'm using NX simulation. I have a question with preparing fem from 3d model. I would like to do some morphing under (I know that option works on NX 9) I have a 3D model then i'm creating 2D fem, then based on 2d fem model i'm creating 3d fem.
Apr 23, · This tutorial covers a few different mesh types (swept 3D, 2D), mesh adaptivity and thermal analysis in NX. Feb 14, · We use NX here, axis milling. We had to learn it basically on the job, w/o training, but it is great!

In Unigraphics purchased SDRC I-DEAS and began an effort to integrate aspects of both software packages into a single product which became Unigraphics NX .
