SIEMENS NX FOR DESIGN

In this webinar, we review tips for keeping the ‘rapid’ in your rapid prototyping. By looking at some crucial additive manufacturing tips & tricks, we show how to boost your key business advantages by embracing or improving additive manufacturing in your operations, whether you’re just getting started or well down the road of 3DP.

How do adopters of PMI interact with companies that aren’t able to open or view parts with PMI?

How does an enterprise-level company adopt a new CAD technology while maintaining backwards compatibility with suppliers, yet still reap the benefits without micromanaging their supply chain?

It’s a difficult juggling exercise, but as adoption of new CAD technology takes place within an enterprise, there are often growing pains. Different segments of supply and resource chains adopt the technologies at different levels of urgency and commitment. Vendors and suppliers do not always have the same resources or technological approaches as an intrepid enterprise-level company. These differences risk creating friction points that diminish the efficiency improvements afforded by your technology upgrades.

By using model-based approaches, companies can simplify their approaches to file management with fewer files; companies can spend less time fine-tuning drawing layouts for visibility; companies can also start to use PMI with downstream products and applications to reap benefits far beyond what happens in CAD (automated CMM programming, simplified PLM, data-driven approaches).

In this video our NX Guru Elizabeth Davis explains how to use the new NX Open Reporter tool available for the most recent version of NX 1847, AKA NX Continuous Release.

With each new NX release, there are almost always some changes to the NX Open API. So if you are currently developing or using NX Open, it is important to know how these changes may effect your code and if there is any rework necessary.

When the recorder tool is run it will evaluate your automation files and return a report. The report is a CSV file with the information needed to identify the specific line of code effected, what's changed in the API, and why. The tool can be run before updating NX so the potential issues can be addressed ahead of time.

If you are currently developing or using NX Open, it is important to know how these changes may affect your code and if there is any rework necessary. The tool is available for download from the Siemens PLM download server through the global technical access center (GTAC).

NX is no longer identified by a release number and will only be referred to as NX. There will be no NX13, so catch up on all the details in this handy video explaining NX Continuous Release.

Siemens PLM customers in the Continuous Release main channel will see functional improvements every six months with monthly updates to fix issues. This approach will deliver innovation faster. The updates themselves are smaller. You no longer have a large jump between major releases, or worse, doubling or tripling up on the upgrade by skipping one or two major versions to get your company “current."
