Display Right Angled Head for Tool Path Verification I occasionally receive questions about the use of right-angled heads in NX CAM and tool path verification. If you use these types of heads often, you probably use NX CAM’s NC Simulation module to verify that your tool paths are collision- and gouge-free. But what if you [...]

Creating a Reusable Parametric Component The reuse library has various uses such as housing common parts used within assemblies (i.e. hardware, clamps, pins, etc), features that are used routinely in your designs and / or have parameters preassigned to them, such as a feature color, or sketches that commonly used. Today, we will investigate the […]

Working With Revisions of Non-NX Parts and Translated Files Note: Download the part file and  follow along with the blog! Replacement Assistant Part File If you deal with customer data from a non-NX part (Inventor, Solidworks, Catia etc.) you know that they are easily opened in NX.  The problems come in when they send you […]

What is Feature Based Machining (FBM)? Part 2 How to Automate Your Manufacturing Process with "Create Feature Process" in NX CAM How does Create Feature Process fit in with part 1 of our feature based machining series? we discussed feature recognition in Siemens NX CAM. It allowed for interrogation of a solid body, finding feature bases [...]
What is Feature Based Machining (FBM)? (Part 1) How to use Feature Recognition & Grouping in NX CAM Questions regarding feature based machining (FBM) in Siemens NX CAM arise from time to time - including ones about feature recognition. CAM users want a clearer understanding of the out-of-the-box functionality. As well, levels of customization to [...]

Create an Isometric Orientation from an Orthographic View One of our users recently called in asking if it was possible to create an Isometric view from an orthographic view on a drawing. This took me on a walk down memory lane because this was something everyone knew in the early days of NX. First, I […]

Webkey Account Changes You may have received an email from Siemens about your Webkey account and some changes that have been made to how customers access their accounts. One of the main changes is around the use of your email address vs. the use of a username to access your account. Also, you may have […]

Manufacturing: Cutting with Tool Position on a Boundary is back in NX1872 Series Software. Personally, I like the new dialogs for creating boundaries for machining but there is something we lost in NX11.0.2 and 12.0.  The ability to easily choose for the tool position to be “ON” the boundary.          The old […]
