NX MCD: New Distance Sensors trigger better machine automation

Siemens Experimenter Siemens Experimenter

When creating motion simulations, you’ll often need to trigger an operation when parts fall within a certain proximity. For example, when a box moves into the correct location, you may want a sensor to detect that position and alert a controller to pick up the box and move it to the next station. This video shows how to use new Distance Sensors in NX 11.0.1. With this feature, you can create more realistic machine simulations to validate operations earlier in the design process and reduce PLC programming time.

Hello Jochen,

 

thank you for sharing the video it is really helpful.

I also like that it shows how to use the "Object Changer" command properly to change the color of an object in your MCD simulation since I heard this question a couple of times.

 

Best Regards

Hello JochenMerhof,

Thank you for the great tutorial. Can you please tell me if there is any option to sense color of the product? Is there any way to detect the color in NX MCD? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you
