2 Day Class

This course is intended for experienced NX users and covers a comprehensive exposure to the Sheet Metal application. The intent is to expand the current skill set of users by adding the common production design processes for the NX Sheet Metal application and establish efficient practices for designing parts fabricated from sheet metal or other similar laminar materials.

Prerequisites:

Students attending this course are expected to have taken one of the Swoosh courses TR10200-NX CAD Fundamentals or TR10300-NX for Experienced CAD Users (or the Siemens equivalent) in addition to a minimum of 80 hours of using NX. They should be competent with navigating the NX user interface, understand NX part file format, and capable of basic feature modeling, sketching, and assemblies.
