NX Design methods for NX CAM


It is important how I am doing the Model for CAM ?

Should I do a Hole, or Extrude a hole ?

Should I do a Pocket or Extrude a pocket ?

I see that a lot of Features are recognized by CAM so it is a better way to do the Model to get the best results in CAM ?

In general you should use the geometric recognition with NX CAM and not search for NX design features.

This allows you to also use dump solids, like STEP imports or similar with your automation code.

I only use extrudes for complex shapes, simple shapes are always created with the corresponding design feature.
