FastStart for Experienced 3D CAD Users provides an accelerated introduction to the task-based workflows that new NX users will utilize when creating and editing parametric parts. The real-world experience of the Siemens instructors aids students in transferring knowledge gained through this single course to their job resulting in faster time to productivity.

At the completion of the FastStart for Experienced 3D CAD Users class, the student will be able to develop parametric solid and assembly models as well as drawings using the master model concept. These concepts can be applied in the real world of product development and collaboration. As with each course developed and taught by Siemens Software professionals, this class reinforces our in-depth knowledge of the software's capabilities and instructs the students based on the underlying principles incorporated within the NX product suite. This class was designed to increase the productivity of the student, teaching the necessary skills to accomplish the following:

  • Open and examine NX models
  • Create and edit parametric part models
  • Create and modify assembly structures
  • Establish interpart modeling relationships within an assembly structure
  • Translate and modify non-parametric model data
  • Build assembly configurations using arrangements
  • Create and modify basic drawings

Designers, engineers, detailers, and CAD/CAM managers who need to manage and use NX.
