File Transfer

Creator
Creator

Our company use Solid Edge ST6 for design and I have NX8.5 in the machine shop.
Could you advise the best method to transfer files between these two systems bearing in mind we do machine features and channels down to 0.05mm in size, and accuracy is our main concern.
I have noticed some models generate and verify quicker than others, making me think there is a difference in the make up of the models, I modeled the same part in NX as was modeled in ST6 to compare.

Thanks for your help.

In NX, you can open the Solid Edge files directly - is that what you are looking for?

ST6 files can be opened with NX 8.5.3 and NX 9.

There is a specific menu option - File --> Open Solid Edge Files for CAM.
Then go to File New --> Manufacturing and pick a setup assembly, and you are ready to go.

This sets a couple options that should make your life easier.
You can adjust the options in Customer Defatults --> Manufacturing --> Geometry --> Solid Edge.
