NX CAM: Example of a NC program including subprogramming for a multiple part

Example of a NC program including sub-programming for a multiple part setup including on-machine probing, which writes measured values into external log files which are then passed to a quality system (CAQ).  The complete NC programming task is done with NX CAM from Siemens and UserCycle, which is a NX addon tool for cycle programming. Also the machine simulation is running under ISV, the integrated simulation and verification module of NX. Only one station of the part family setup is programmed, the other 3 part programs are create automatically through the postprocessor. All probing operation are created as machine cycles. The NC program and the simulation are done for a DMC 60 U with Siemens 840D solutionline control.

NX 7.5 Motion Simulation: Gears, Rack and Pinion

This NX 7.5 video tutorial shows how to use the Gears Coupler, Rack and Pinion coupler in NX motion simulation module

NX 7 - Extrude Command Options (Offset and Draft)

This NX 7 video tutorial shows a technique of using one sketch to create multiple features having different extrude offset and draft. The target of this tutorial is to create bosses with screw holes. This tutorial also shows the creation of electrical contacts in a cordless drill as an example to show, how to use the Offset options of the Extrude command.

NX 7.5: Part Families

This NX 7.5 video tutorial shows  "how to use part families inside Siemens NX 7.5". In this tutorial a shackle family has been designed based on the suppliers table dimensions. Using part families concept you can save your time.

UGS NX4: Mold Design

This UGS NX4 video tutorial covers the overall process to be followed to design the mold. Topics covered in this video are: Open STEP file Use of design validation tools to check for undercuts, draft, wall thickness, sharp corners, find core cavity region faces Mold design tools such as Project Initialize, Work Piece Dimensions, Cavity Layout, Parting Manager, Patch Loops Selection, Core & Cavity, Mold Base Management, Standar Part Management, Pocket Management are discussed.
