NX provides extensive tools for creating associative manufacturing models that respond easily to changes, including in-process models and fixtures. This Tech Tip explains how to use Part Modules in NX to accomplish this.
Learn how to get started with Part Modules, and how to use this powerfully productive design tool in the CAM environment. A single NX part file can manage several derivative geometry items in one place, for example:
In-process models can be built from the final part geometry
Fixtures can be built based on the geometry of the workpiece
Several NC Setups can be programmed in one part file
Other part variants can be developed this way, too
