How to use Emboss Command in NX

Tutorial by Danny Tasmakis

Hi Amit,
Emboss is mainly used on surfaces, you can use an intersecting solid as Michael shows, you can also use a curve or sketch profile.

  1. Step 1:

    Create the surface you want to Emboss..........I've created a curved surface.

  2. Step 2:

    Create a sketch of your desired shape on a plane, it can be any distance from the surface.

  3. Step 3:

    Launch the Emboss command; Insert > Design Feature > Emboss

  4. Step 4:

    The Emboss dialogue opens with relative options, follow the options down, Select the Curve, Select the Surface and Select the direction. I've Input a distance of 1mm from the Embossed faces with an angle of 5°.

  5. Step 5:

    Congratulations! you've just Embossed your surface.

  6. Step 6:

    You can now use this surface to trim a solid or run some blends around the edges then apply some thickness and you have yourself a sheet metal part.

  7. Step 7:

    Looks pretty shmick all rendered up :)
