NX CAD Advanced Processes

The Advanced Processes course is designed to propel students further up the efficiency curve. As a second-tier course, Advanced Processes builds on the tools you deployed as a result of attending the NX CAD Fundamental Workflows course. The real-world experience of the Siemens instructors aids students in transferring knowledge gained through this single course to their job resulting in faster time to productivity.

  • Software/Version: NX 12.0
  • User Level: Intermediate
  • Cost: $1620
  • Duration: 5 Days

At the completion of the Advanced Processes class, the student will be able to develop complex parametric solid and assembly models. This task-based process course focuses the student on productive modeling techniques that capture design intent in the context of the Master Model. These concepts can be applied in the real world of product development and collaboration. As with each course developed and taught by Siemens PLM Software professionals, this class reinforces our in-depth knowledge of the software's capabilities and instructs the students based on the underlying principles incorporated within the NX product suite. This class was designed to increase the productivity of the student, teaching the necessary skills to accomplish the following:

  • Apply advanced sketch constraints to capture design intent
  • Use basic surfacing techniques to build parts
  • Develop models to support manufacturing processes
  • Translate and modify non-parametric model data
  • Use top-down assembly modeling techniques to establish interpart relationships
  • Build assembly configurations using arrangements

Who Should Attend?

This course is for designers, engineers, and CAD/CAM managers who need to create parametric solid models that capture design intent.
