Intermediate Sheet Metal Features in NX In this blog, I wanted to focus on adding secondary tabs and three bend corners, topics covered in our NX Sheet Metal class. Although these features might not seem related, I think this is a very common progression. I will be working in NX 1899, although these features are [...]
Most Useful Synchronous Modeling Tools: Move, Delete, Resize Face The Top 3 Tools Used in  NX CAD Synchronous Modeling Synchronous modeling tools in NX CAD allow NX users to quickly edit the design geometry without having to edit any original features. This allows for precise, direct push-and-pull edits to the body. The synchronous modeling tool [...]
What's New in NX Pattern Enhancements This update on NX pattern enhancements simplifies the pattern creation process and also reduce Pattern update and creation times. In previous versions, the Simple method of patterning did not support multiple features.  If more than one feature was selected, the pattern would become a Variational Pattern which would then [...]

Typical Complex Parts Machining Complex part components can be characterized as high accuracy parts with free form shapes manufactured from different high tech materials. Typical Geometry: Complex round shapes with pockets Free form complex shapes Challenging geometry– thin walls, hard to reach places Typical Machining Concerns: Multiple setups Multi-axis milling, turning, grinding, drilling Complex fixturing [...]

Making molds is easy as 1, 2, 3 with a built-in step-by-step process that walks through designing your assembly. Mold Wizard in NX dramatically outperforms traditional CAD by automating much of the process. First, the program validates that your part can be manufactured properly. Then it gets to work designing the mold assembly of your […]
