Siemens NX Essentials Training for Designers

Description
NX CAD Essentials covers 3D solid modeling, assembly creation, and drafts. This course teaches users how to create 2D parametric sketch designs which drive 3D feature based models, and then use those models in a Master Model environment, driving assemblies, drafts, and other aspects of the product lifecycle.

Intended Audience
Our NX Essentials course is inviting to both CAD users and Non-CAD users alike. This includes both existing NX users on older versions as well as CAD users on different software.

Objectives 

  • To understand how to create a 2D parametrically constrained sketch
  • To create a 3D model using sketch driven features
  • Combine individual parts into assemblies and build BOM
  • Create a 2D draft file driven from part and assembly files
