2 days I NX CAM

Course Overview:
Kaizen PLM provide training which enables the customer to utilise the various features and modules in NX CAD and CAM environments, further empowering efficiency and innovation. CAM users from time to time will be required to make changes to CAD models or generate their own model as required in order to utilise NX CAM’s capabilities in an efficient manner. With that in mind Kaizen PLM have included an NX CAD Essentials training module to enable the user, resulting in a well-rounded skill set by the end of the training.
