How to Become an NX Power User
Are you ready to become an NX power user? We’re delighted to offer you admission to NX University, our 100% tuition-free event for the NX CAD/CAM user. This event is our way of giving back to our customers and is returning to 8 cities this October & November. Our application engineers will be hitting the road to help you make sense of the latest in NX as well as uncover hidden tips + tricks and other underutilized tools. In the afternoon, we’ll be hosting breakout sessions for some actual hands-on training. Of course, we’ll also make time to answer all your big & small NX questions.

Of course, we couldn’t do it without our NX wizards. Here’s who we’ll be bringing:
John Vincent‘s impressive working background in the tooling industry gives him a plethora of knowledge in BOMs, CNC programming, mill/turns as well as post processor development. He’s become one of our most highly sought-after NX CAM mentors and training instructors at Swoosh.
Reese Shearer‘s NX CAD knowledge spans over 2 decades. Because of his past hands-on mechanical engineering roles for companies such as GM, he’s become an effective NX CAD instructor and leader. He strives to help companies build more efficient manufacturing processes that exceed expectations.
With beginnings starting as an engineer/draftsman in 1983, Craig Robillard‘s experience has made him a master of data management and his speciality at Swoosh is Teamcenter. Craig has an extensive background in new product development, having worked on a wide range of products such as copiers, ink jet printers, scanners and satellites as well as industrial compressor design (HVAC).
Michael Pinto‘s understanding of 3D modeling, 2D drawings and other CAD features makes him a true NX wizard for all designers. Michael previously worked at Pratt & Whitney and Nike. Alongside mCAD, Michael implements KeyShot into the CAD environment and leverages design simulation with Simcenter – showing the importance of each step in the manufacturing process.
With all this being said, here’s where you can watch a rewind of last year’s virtual NX University event:
