In this quick video we’ll be taking a look at Expressions in NX and SolidWorks 2012′s Equation Editor, which are very similar to say the least! You’ll be adjusting those dimensions verrrry easily in no time people!
Today we’ll be answering a question from our member Matthew, related to the practical usage of conics and spine curves. We’ll dive a little deeper and look at different ways of approaching this kind of geometry in NX. Can you handle 3 videos on the subject? I think so!
Correction: I’ve been referring to the “WCS” as the “World Coordinate System,” and Mark Lawry was kind enough to point out my mistake: “WCS” stands for “Working Coordinate System.” As the WCS is dynamic, it shouldn’t be used to define parametric features. In other words, it’s probably find for rapid freeform modeling, but should be [...]
Building on what we’ve learned so far in our NX intro series, today we’ll build perfect class-a surfaces for a simple megaphone handle. See full post for part 2.
As a follow-up to the NX post from yesterday, here we’ll take a deeper look at the NX interface, the power of associative parametric modeling, and some tips and tricks for clean surface modeling. Check out the full article for transcription.
This week we embark on what is bound to become a wild and mysterious journey through the magical wilderness of Unigraphics NX 7.5. As with any adventure, it’s best to start at the beginning, and we’ll be doing just that: if you’ve never used NX before, you’ve come to the right place. In this series we’ll be looking at NX from the vantage point of an Industrial Designer, emphasizing the tools and techniques that make NX a world-class tool for consumer products design.
Catia V5 isn’t the only kid in town with a wicked-sweet parametric sweep tool. Unigraphics NX6 has a new and improved interface for its parametric “section sweep” tools, offering pretty much everything you get in the Catia sweep function, and a few other nice little add-ons. As a class-a surfacer, I use these kinds of [...]
