NX Mechanical Freeform Modeling Training

The NX Mechanical Freeform Modeling course teaches users how to create freeform parts that update reliably and shift smoothly to the manufacturing application. Users will learn how to incorporate freeform features into any part, from reverse engineered product models to complex engineering designs.

Intended Audience
Engineers and designers that need to create, edit, and analyze curves and freeform shapes used in part design. It is recommended for users who have a basic understanding of CAD. This includes both NX users as well as CAD users on different software.

Expectations and Goals

  • Create curves and derived curves used in creating freeform features
  • Analyze curves and faces
  • Create freeform shapes through curves
  • Create freeform shapes by sweeping sections along curves
  • Create transition and blend shapes
  • Extend and offset faces
  • Create thicken and draft faces
