In this webinar we will be taking a look at some of the features in the different NX CAD Mach packages as well as showing a demo of the Annex Mach Advantage features.
4d systems is a premier provider of Siemens PLM and robotic simulation software our team of engineers bring together decades of experience in product life cycle management solution implementation simulation engineering and manufacturing.
NX Mach software products are prepackaged solutions delivering high performance cad capabilities of NX software the leading solution for mechanical design they offer competitively priced solutions tailored to specific product development roles practices and processes in four performance tiers value-added upgrades are available to move customers from one tier to the next each package delivers complete capabilities for production work.
If you’re in the mold or die business, these tools are really powerful to allow you have all that mold and die checking built into your tools as well as having all the feature and assembly modeling that Mach 3 offers.
Using Siemens NX and 3D Scan Data
This will be covering 3d printing aspects of NX. We are looking at the parts that made out of the 3d scans of the shoe inserts. We took a shoe insert and the top surface which we wanted to model and replaced the bottom surface with a nice flat surface that we’re going to be able to put right directly on our 3d printing bed so this will kind of highlight the abilities of taking a 3d scan going straight into a 3d print environment.
3D Printing Outline:
Welcome to 4D Systems Introduction to NX Video on 3D Printing
We will be taking an object we worked with in the previous video working with 3D Scan Data.
This object was shoe inserts we imported into NX, cleaned up, and added some standard modeling features.
We will now be starting the Additive Manufacturing application to prepare these objects for 3d printing.
In this application you can save your print surface and volume to ensure your design is manufacture able.
You can also add support material in this step.
Set the print volume to our printer. (TAZ 5 Height (z) = 9.8, Length (y) = 10.8, Width (x) = 11.4, OriginX = -5.7, OriginY = -5.4, OriginZ = 0)
We are going to import our part using the add component dialog.
The part is too large to fit on the print bed.
Go into the part
Scale body (0.02 Uniform)
Save as the part as a scaled model
Reimport the model.
Fix on print bed.
Export to STL
Need to use separate slicer software (Cura etc.)
4D Systems – NX Additive Webinar
Learn how Siemens NX’s Additive Manufacturing Technology can be used effectively to create 3D printed parts. In this video, we will setup a build tray for a set of
gripper fingers on our training robot and actually execute and print it on a 3d printer.
