Window & other selection methods. How to Cancel entity selection. Object Display - Change object color, linetype, line thickness, Work Plane Preferences - Grid On/Off, Snap to Grid, Grid spacing

Nx Beginners Tutorial - 1: User Interface and Menu Options

In this Nx video tutorial, NX User Interface and Menu Options are explain in detail. This is a good starting point for beginners who are first time learning NX. For this tutorial NX 4 is used.

NX CAM: Integrated G-code Driven Simulation

In this NX Tutorial video see how you can verify your machining operations in NX CAM. The G-code driven simulation displays full material removal in your machining environment including the 3D solid model of the machine, fixtures, and tooling. The procedure to do this has been shown in detail in the following video:

NX Tip: Ribs for Molded Part using Extrude Command

This NX Tip video shows how to extrude with intersecting section curves in one feature. This is very useful to construct the complicated ribs for a molded part with single feature. First you have to create a "self-intersecting section" - where curves of the section intersect each other. Then select the curves. Use the Extrude command and give the desired height & select offset to two sided and you will see that the ribs are created. This has been shown in detail in the following video:

Nx Command Tutorial: Swept Feature, Circular Array & Trim Body

Creating a Cutout Using The Swept Command : Commands used in this tutorial are Swept, Trim Body, Grouping, Circular Array. First guide curves and section is drawn & kept ready for swept command. Using swept commands swept surface is created. To create a cutout Trim Body command is used. Group is created for Swept surface & Trim Body. Then circular instances are created by using circular pattern command.
