NX MCD: New Distance Sensors Trigger Better Machine Automation

By: Jochen Merhof of Siemens PLM Software. 


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.
