Creating equal circles in NX

NX creates auto dimensions when you start to create circles by typing a diameter size at the first circle in the sketch. You can create auto constraints instead of this auto diameter dimensions. 

Auto-created dimensions might be a problem when you want to edit dimensions of circles that created at the same time. You should edit the diameter size of each circle to edit all.

If you change the settings to create auto constraint instead of auto diameter, all of the circles that created at the same time will edit when you change the first dimension on the first created circle.

To create equal radius instead of auto (Diameter) dimension

  • Customer Defaults => Sketch => Inferred Constraints and Dimensions => Equal Radius (Check this option)

Note: The changes in the <Customer Default> will be applied after restarting NX.
