Intermediate NX Design and Assemblies

NX Intermediate Design and Assemblies explores some of the advanced tools available in NX design as well as diving deeper in NX assemblies. Design Intent is expanded upon, from part design through assembly.

Intended Audience
This course is for designers, engineers and CAD/CAM managers who need to create parametric solid models that capture design intent and have already taken the NX Essentials course.

Expectations and Goals

  • Pattern and offset sketch curves
  • Create a basic freeform shape
  • Copy/paste a feature
  • Create reference sets
  • Create draft
  • Use Synchronous Modeling
  • Create a variable blend
  • Create component arrays
  • Apply top down assembly modeling
  • Design “in context”
  • Use the WAVE geometry linker
  • Create interpart references
  • Define remembered assembly constraints
  • Define a revision identifier
  • Understand component replacement methods
  • Manage assembly arrangements
