What You'll Learn
Learn to navigate the various tools and applications offered in NX CAD and get familiar with the User Interface. Essential aspects of customizing the NX CAD environment, including Command Dialogs to Toolbars, and modifying user settings will be covered in detail.
From extrusions and swept geometry to blending and other detail modeling, the large and diverse collection of NX CAD Feature Modeling tools and options will be explored and applied to various operations in order to create complex and precise 3D models.
Learn how to leverage NX CAD’s vast toolset to prep your models for Sheet Metal. Get familiar with setting up and creating base Sheet Metal features, adding details such as bends, blends and various cutouts, all while analyzing the design to make sure that it is manufacturable.
The NX Sketch Task Environment is one of the most important aspects of designing in NX CAD. Learn how to utilize these unique Sketch tools to create lines, arcs and other profile geometry, while adding dimensions and relationships between sketch objects in order to control the geometry and foster a robust design environment.
Get familiar with NX CAD’s unique approach to direct modeling with the Synchronous Modeling toolset. Allowing the user to choose to ignore the history of an existing model or work with featureless imported geometry, giving the user the power to directly manipulate any object in the design environment with minimal restriction.
WAVE INTERPART LINKING
Discover how to establish and manage links between components in an assembly by leveraging the power of NX CAD to create WAVE Link geometry, and design around existing components and geometry while maintaining associativity.
Explore how to create and manage complex 3D assemblies using NX CAD’s specialized tools and features. You’ll get a detailed look at the interactions encountered in the Assembly Modeling environment, how to utilize the Assembly Load Options, as well as using Assembly Constraints, Arrangements, and Reference Sets to set up display states within the assembly.
Learn to create high-quality 2D engineering drawings from 3D models using the NX Cad drafting tools and features. Explore capabilities such as modifying drawing layout settings, adding various views, editing dimensions and annotations, and setting up explosions, all while creating detailed multi-sheet drawings.
