Many industries require milling of complex blended pockets. Regular blending methods may not result in a pocket that is modeled as it will be machined.


You can avoid downstream manufacturing problems when you analyze and validate pockets to blend prior to modeling them. There are other benefits to using pocket blends too:


  • Improve quality
  • Increase efficiency
  • Improve weight estimates based on the model

In this NX Quick Tips video, I’ll show you how to use the new Blend Pocket feature in NX 9.
