NX for Design



How to change/set the extension value for new and existing automatically created Centerlines or Center Marks on a drawing?


The extension value of the automatically created Centerlines or Center Marks come from the Drafting Standard setting 'Annotation - Centerline - Extension' (shown below), if the customer Default •'Drawing -Settings Origination' option is set to '•Drawing Standard' :
However, if the •'Settings Origination' option is set to '•Drawing Template' or the Drawing Template already contains a value for the Center Mark Extension setting, these will override the value in the Drafting Standard.

To set the value in the Drawing Template to be the same as the Drafting Standard:

1. Open the template drawing file in NX, the select 'Menu - Tools - Drafting Standard...', select the appropriate •'Load From Level' and •'Standard' and •'Apply'.
(The drafting standards will then be applied to the template file.) 

2. Save the template file, and when it is used to create a new drawing the required centreline format will be used.

For an existing drawing, delete the centerlines, apply the drafting standard (via 'Tools - Drafting Standard...'), and recreate the automatic centerlines.
