Below each major step are bulleted steps which describe the individual actions that must be taken. As your knowledge of NX increases, the action boxes will seem redundant as the step text becomes all that is needed to accomplish a given task. Mouse Buttons The mouse will be used throughout this course to make selections.
Examples of different mouse devices are shown. The mouse buttons are referred to as the first, second, and third mouse buttons, starting from left to right. On mouses with mouse wheels, the wheel acts as mouse button 2 when it is pressed. On two-button mouses, the buttons represent 1 and 3.
Both buttons pushed together equals mouse button 2. The functional assignment of the mouse buttons can be reversed in most operating systems for users who prefer that setup. The following abbreviations are used for the mouse buttons in this course. Class Standards The following standards will be used in this course. Standardization allows you to work with and predict the organization of parts created by others.
All work should be performed in accordance with these standards. Part File Naming To facilitate the identification of design models without having to open a part, standard naming conventions can be established for the various files associated with the part definition.
An example of a file naming standard is shown below:. Currently up to characters are valid for file names. A four character extension. This means the maximum number of user defined characters for the file name is actually Seed parts are an effective tool for establishing customer defaults or any settings that are part-dependent saved with the part.
Once a seed part is established, it should be write-protected to avoid accidental modification. These parts incorporate the standards described above. Explicit modeling is modeling that is not parametric. Objects are created relative to model space, not each other. Changes to one or more objects do not necessarily affect other objects or the finished model. Examples of explicit modeling include creating a line between two existing points or creating an arc through three existing points.
A parametric model is one in which the values parameters used for the definition of the model are stored with the model for future editing. Parameters may reference each other to establish relationships between the various features of the model. Examples include the diameter and depth of a hole or the length, width, and height of a rectangular pad.
Linking these parameters together may achieve the desired results. This is not easily accomplished with an explicit model. A constraint-based model is one in which the geometry of the model is driven or solved from a set of design rules applied to the geometry defining the model as constraints.
These constraints might be dimensional constraints such as sketch dimensions or positioning dimensions or geometric constraints such as parallelism or tangency. Examples include a line tangent to an arc where the designer intends for that tangent condition to be maintained even though the angle of the line may change or a perpendicular condition being maintained as angles are modified.
Hybrid modeling refers to the selectively combined use of the three types of modeling described above. Hybrid modelers allow designers to use parametric modeling where needed without requiring that the entire model be constrained before proceeding.
Because of this, designers have more flexibility in modeling techniques. The NXhybrid modeler supports traditional explicit geometric modeling along with constraint-based sketching and parametric feature modeling. All tools are integrated so they can be used in combination. Because this procedure may vary among companies and platforms, consult your system administrator for a site specific procedure to follow.
After starting NX, you will see the "No Part" interface. This interface only allows you to perform actions such as changing defaults and preferences, opening an existing part, or creating a new part. The graphics shown in this text are taken from a workstation with a Windows operating system. The display of windows and dialogs on a UNIX workstation will differ slightly from those shown.
Gateway is the prerequisite for all other interactive applications, and is the first application you enter when you start NX and open or create a part. Gateway allows the review of existing parts.
To create or edit objects within a part, another application, such as Modeling, must be started.

Stratasys unveiled the new J55 full-color 3D printer last month. We wanted to give designers and industry professionals a chance to see it for yourself -- wherever you are -- by offering this augmented reality experience.
