Course Objective;

After successfully completing this course, you should be able to perform the following activities in NX:

  • Create and edit splines and other curves.
  • Create and edit primary and transition surfaces using freeform curves and faces:
    • Through Curve surfaces;
    • Through Curve Mesh surfaces;
    • Swept surfaces and bodies;
    • Section surfaces and bodies;
    • Bridge surfaces;
    • Face and Soft Blends;
    • N-Sided surfaces;
    • Analyse curves and faces.

Who's it for?

Freeform shapes are those that cannot be built using standard analytic shapes. This course includes creating splines and other developed curves, building surfaces through one or more sets of curves, sweeping profiles along guides, and applying specially shaped transitions between faces.

The emphasis is on common techniques that lead to low-risk results. If you use sound practices you can create models easily and ensure that they update model geometry dependably. Examples include hollows, offsets, thickened sheets, and trimmed bodies.
