How to measure a volume enclosed by assembly parts or cavity in NX.

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

In the following assembly I need to find the volume inside the gearbox, by using SPACE FINDER from the Analysis menu.

When specifying the interior point, make sure that the point is in the space that we need to measure and not on a face. Select the part making a close environment



The space finder also create 2 datum plane specifying the minimum and maximum, this information helps us define the maximum height of volume needed using the volume-height analysis section.

 In this section you can specify either you maximum height or volume and save it has a faceted body.

This is a fast and easy way to evaluate the quantity of liquid needed, for more precise evaluation other tools are necessary.
