NX8 now has the ability to easily create radially patterned features. An engineer can quickly define a radial pitch distance and a count and NX8 will produce concentric rings of patterned features. It’s easy and it’s really powerful. The new “Pattern Feature” command… Read More
By Stephen M. Samuel PE Synchronous modeling is an amazing technology. It’s like a great big “Get out of jail” card for CAD modeling. As amazing as parametric modeling is and as powerful and stable as the NX CAD system is, there are… Read More
NX7.5 modeling technique called “Inferred Blend.” The new functionality in the Face Blend
NX 7.5 modeling technique called “Deformable Part.” This functionality is extremely useful when it is beneficial to represent the real world “flexibility” of a component. For this case study we are looking at a Medical Product known as a stent. Our goal is to… Read More
How to make a water line in NX7.5.
Created by, soopzable. How to connect a circular tube to a square tube in NX7.5. This works for connecting any round shape to any square shape using “Through Curves.”
Download the .zip file below and open basketball.prt. Insert -> Offset/Scale -> Offset Surface. Make sure “single face” is selected in the selection filter, and choose any one of the orange faces. Enter a value of 0.046875 in, and make sure that the… Read More
Progressive modeling is the art of using successive waved part files to enable the modeling of very complex components. This technique enables you to break up certain features into different part files so that when you design you don’t have to update everything all at once. This way a… Read More
NX7.5 modeling technique called “Extract Virtual Curves.” When working with geometry of a
NXtutorials brings you a helpful tutorial that solves the “move face” problem. Due to the complexity of many modern models, the synchronous modeling command of “move face” does not always work. In those cases, the associative “split body” command helps to solve the problem.
