Duration: 5 Days   |   Location: Portland, Oregon

Description: This course was created for experienced CAD users transitioning to Siemens NX CAD from other CAD software tools.

In this course, students will learn the essential NX processes necessary for creating and editing parametric models. They will create sketches to capture design intent, model a part efficiently, as well as assemble parts into product assemblies, and produce basic part drawings.

Prerequisite: Working knowledge of parametric modeling

Transitioning to a new CAD system is always challenging, but the payoffs can be huge. If you're going to change CAD, you're going to have to adjust your team as well. Sometimes it comes down to individual learning curves, but our team can help your team. We've successfully transitioned teams using SolidWorks, Creo Pro/e, and Catia. Let's look briefly at the challenge levels for each of these:

Going from SolidWorks to NX:
Usually, this is easiest because the workflows are so similar. Dassault Systems (SolidWorks) licenses its main Parasolid kernel from Siemens PLM, owner of the kernel. The main core of SolidWorks is the same kernel as that of NX. 

Going from Creo to NX:
The workflows are different, but our experience working with companies has shown us how to communicate & translate quirks & features from Creo into NX.

Going from Catia to NX:
The same goes for Catia; it's a different workflow, but again there are always little usability things we've encountered to smooth the way.

 


This course offering is an instructor-led upgrade and transition class, and includes hands-on training. Courses can be modified to exactly fit the needs of any team, company or department.

Our example course below is an upgrade session covering Teamcenter 8.3 to Teamcenter 10, with NX CAD upgrading from NX 8.5 to NX 10 (skipping over NX 9.0).

Each class participant will leave with the fundamental knowledge of what has changed in Teamcenter and should be comfortable returning to normal operations with regard to Teamcenter. NX CAD participants will leave this class with an understanding of enhanced and new features added in NX 9.0 and NX 10.0, new part creation, adding and removing components in an assembly, and drafting in the new environment.

This Siemens NX for Design training course introduces the basic and intermediate level uses of modeling, assemblies, drafting, sheet metal applications, and even introduces Synchronous modeling techniques.

This NX CAD Training Class is based on real-world use, and features tasks designers and engineers face in their day-to-day work. Instructor-led portions are interspersed with project-style application use. After attending this class you should be able to roll up your sleeves and start designing in NX.

Prerequisite: Prior understanding and experience with the fundamentals of solid modeling and drafting. You have used another 3D parametric CAD package before (Pro/E, I-deas, Catia, Solidworks, etc). This could be a good upgrade class if you are working in 2 or more releases behind the current release of NX.

If your organization can't afford the down time that is usually accustomed with a major release upgrade, let Applied CAx help make the transition an easy one. We can come onsite for dedicated training classes and then be available for over-the-shoulder mentoring to help users get over the little hurdles that tend to make new releases troublesome. We prefer to MBWA (mentor by walking around) to make sure the training sticks and your users are productive from Go Live. Email and phone support is average. Having somebody to field a quick question and get your users going again is progress.

This class introduces the concepts of Synchronous Modeling and the tools that allow direct editing of geometry, even on imported/feature-less models. You will learn which commands are functional in History and History Free modes. Sample projects and use cases will be worked on in class, and strategies to employ. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to start working confidently with this powerful tool set.

Prerequisite: At least one year of consistent usage of NX modeling application.

Description: This class builds on the basics and teaches you how to create drawings that meet a higher standard. Non-geometric components in the BOM, advanced section views, break-out detail views, associative notes and text, and other techniques to create drawings that need to convey more information than average.

Prerequisite: At least one year of consistent drafting and modeling application usage in NX.

This custom course introduces basic and intermediate-level applications of modeling, surfacing, and introduces Synchronous Modeling techniques with an emphasis on being able to create plastic molded components. This course is based on features and tasks designers and engineers face in their day-to-day work. Instructor-led portions are interspersed with project-style application learning along with Q&A. After attending this class, you should be able to roll up your sleeves and start designing in NX with confidence.

Prerequisite: Prior understanding and experience with the fundamentals of solid modeling in NX10 and familiarity with lofting/surfacing/styling tools in another 3D parametric CAD package  (Pro/E, I-deas, Catia, Solidworks, etc
