Overview

In this TechTip, you will learn how to use Synchronicity in an assembly, in NX 2312.

Synchronicity in an assembly enables to configure the components and chosen facets in various modeling components in a single operation. This is time efficient, as it provides an aid for quick reconfiguring the components of an assembly while analyzing in case of design changes.

Prerequisites: Check whether the Early Access Feature is On in the Early Access Feature dialog box.

Please follow the below steps to use Synchronicity in an NX 2312 Assemblies

Step 1

Step 2

Select Assemblies in the drop down Filter as shown in figure.

Step 3

Once Assemblies is selected the features will appear, in this we have to make changes in Enables shape with component positioning it’s State will be Off we have to right click on it and make it On.

Step 4

After making the changes restart the NX 2312, then the changes will get applied.

Step 2

Go to Assemblies > Position > Label as Modeling Component command.

Step 3

Lable as Modeling Component feature dialogue box will appear.

Step 4

In the Select Component pane, select the components as shown:

Click OK after selecting the component.

Step 5

Once you click OK in the dialogue box, the selected component’s color changes, as shown below. This indicates that the selected components are movable now.

Step 6

Now, if you observe the Position Section of Assemblies, Move Component command has been replaced by Move feature. This change takes place after selecting the components in Label as Modeling Component.

Step 7

Once you select Move command, its feature dialogue box will appear as shown:

Step 8

In Components and Faces to Move section, select the component which you want to move:

Step 9

In Motion section, select the components direction in which it should move:

Step 10

Here you can see that the middle component has been lifted up by one Inch and both the side components have been adjusted their dimensions accordingly, as there are assembly constraints between them.
