Manufacturing 1: NX CAD basics


The course provides an introduction to the use of the CAD functionality. Users learn the basics of CAD modelling. This is followed by an introduction to the methodology of parameterisation and model associativity for a better understanding of the modelling problem. The focus is on dealing with CAD models in terms of the Master Model Concept for a process-based work method that is aligned to concurrent engineering. After the course, participants will be able to handle geometry models in assemblies and implement the potentially necessary modelling of auxiliary geometries for NC machining.
