NX CAD skills for CAM Users

Category: Siemens NX CAM Course

Course Type: Scheduled

Duration: 2 Days

Location: Kaizen PLM Office, Client Site, Remote (Online)

User Level: Advanced

 

Who’s it for?

This training course is for engineers who receive solid models or 2D drafting drawings and need to create stage models or design fixturing to hold parts during manufacture. Using ‘wave’ technology to create stage models associative to the original part, allowing changes to seamlessly flow to the stage model & on to the NX CAM program. Also showing how modifications identified during NX CAM programming can be easily updated.

 

Course Content:

NX CAD for CAM uses 'wave' technology for manufacturing. From Creating simple drawing to Synchronous modelling, after this 2 day course, you'll understand how to create stage models to allow seamless changes on to NX CAM.

  • Creating parts with sketches

  • Synchronous modelling

  • Creating and editing holes

  • Working with assemblies

  • Using wave linked geometry

  • Creating associativity

  • Creating simple drawing

  • CAD tools with CAM environment
