Sam Kuan, Siemens PLM, demonstrates the new injection flow capabilities in NX 8.5. Capabilities include melt front time, air trap, weld line, pressure drop, melt front temperature, maximum temperature, gate contribution, frozen layer ratio, and maximum cooling time.These capabilities are based on the… Read More
We are proud to announce that Iram Lerma is the winner for the iPad stand contest! For his unique and well engineered ipad stand.
NX 7.5 modeling technique called “Synchronous Modeling – Reuse Tools.” Brought in at the
By Stephen M. Samuel, PE Iso parametric curves are incredibly useful. They’ve been available in NX for many years but now they update. You can use them to distribute curves along a surface in a rectangularize pattern. Once you have the curves, you… Read More
By Stephen M. Samuel PE Creating Beautiful Designs The conic blend answers the question “How do I step up my game in my efforts to produce designs that are not only durable and functional but as beautiful as they can be?”. There… Read More
New drafting functionality allows you to keep blends and keep them smooth.
NX8 now has iso parametric curves that update and are well, parametric. In this exercise you will learn where to find the new isoparametic curve command and you will see one neat application of it.
The new NX8 Pattern Feature command is more powerful than ever before. It gives users the ability to create radial patterns of holes and or other features that are staggered. In this short video you will learn how to use the command and… 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
Congratulations, You are part of a very special group of folks that are creative enough to have your own idea for an invention and confident enough to actually do something about it. You have already jumped the biggest hurdle because many people have… Read More
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
By Stephen Samuel The purpose of Computer Aided Design (CAD) is to automate portions of the design process, therefore making it easier and more efficient. When CAD is applied well these benefits and more are achieved. However, if not used correctly CAD can… Read More
There are many shapes that are exceedingly difficult to represent with CAD. Ordinary things like a stalk of broccoli or even the shape of a rose bush are common place yet exceedingly difficult due to the varied and “humaniform” nature of their geometry…. Read More
By Stephen M. Samuel When design engineers use high end CAD tools well, there is an exponential benefit. The difference between someone good with CAD and someone who’s just OK can mean a huge variation in how fast the product they’re working on… Read More
