NX X Automatic Center Mark is not created while creating View in Drafting [NX11].

NX for Design



When creating the view in the drawing, even if you set the center line to be automatically created, the center mark is not created.
It is possible to manually create the center mark later.
User make a hole in the side of the cylinder and creating a center mark there. It is a spline as a line. He is able to create it without problems with NX 8 and NX 10.


The curve where Automatic Center Mark supposed to be created is not Circle/Arc - it's a Spline which projects as Arc.

After NX11 new settings is been provided to control the creation of Automatic Center Marks on such Splines. This can be found at Drafting -> preference -> view -> workflow -> Select Splines projected as Arcs -> Always.

Once this is turned ON then the Center Mark would be created on the required Spline.

Currently it's working as design.
