UT-IMDI Siemens NX 10 Workshop

Mining Building


NX is a powerful CAD/CAE software developed by Siemens PLM Software and used throughout the engineering world. NX is used as an advanced design software in many industries including automotive, energy, and aerospace. For example, companies such as GM, Chrysler, Nissan, and GE Aviation use NX as their central CAD software. In addition to 3D modeling, it has a wide range of capabilities including finite element analysis, kinematics design, static/dynamic/thermal analysis and surface modeling.

The focus of this workshop will be to provide an introduction to the 3D modeling and part assembly features of NX. The workshop is directed towards those who have had little or no experience with the software and would like to learn the basics of 3D part modeling and assembly using NX. Each section of the workshop will explain the relevant tools and features followed by examples which will be worked through step-by-step by the instructor and student. The workshop is intended to provide an introduction to the interface and features of NX relevant to 3D modeling and parts assembly that will in turn provide a solid foundation for exploring more advanced topics.
