Sheet Metal: Material and Bend Table Improvements

Siemens Phenom Siemens Phenom

NX12 has been a well-received release from Sheet Metal users. This is the seventh and final article in a series highlighting what’s new.

Defining the material properties and manufacturing parameters for a sheet metal design is essential for accurate manufacture and downstream processes.

 

NX12 brings a number of enhancements to the part properties and material definition:

  • Material driven tooling selection to define bend properties such as Bend Radius & Neutral Factor
  • Ability to define secondary lookup table from main material table, material/tooling, and process driven bend properties selection. (Angle based Bend Radius and Neutral Factor)
  • Bend Definition Methods
    • Bend Allowance Table
    • Bend Deduction Table
    • Bend Deduction Formula
    • DIN6935 Formula
  • Assigning part attribute through material table to carry information across applications

Giving the user control of defining bend parameters from specified tooling fully supports the real values achieved through an air-bending process.  Each material can be assigned specific associative attributes such as the material name for use on drawings or in PMI.

 

Take a look at the demonstration below.

I'm sorry but I'm unable to see the video. 

 

Can you make it available again.

 

Thanks a lot.

Hmm, strange...

Neather IE, Edge nor Chrome are showing the video.

Hello,

It looks like it's a problem at my working place. At home and on my mobile device, I can see the video without any problem.

Thanks a lot for investigating and sorry for the trouble.

Regards...
