The following introductory training video series is for manufacturers who want to understand the components of G-code based Machine Tool Simulation in NX CAM. It describes the machine tool examples provided as part of the NX software install, the basic customization process and tools needed.
NOTE: It will take almost a minute before all of the content on this page is displayed and you can scroll down. Please be patient while the previews for all 13 videos are loaded.
Created with NX 7.5
The introductory training video series is broken down into 13 brief chapters, as described below. It is helpful to go through them in order at first, but having several chapters makes it easier to return to the material for reinforcement.
Learning Objective: Gain an understanding of the various available simulation modules in NX CAM, the concept of NC code based simulation and important role of the controller model. After this basic training you will be able to demonstrate advanced simulation utilizing the provided examples as well as to reuse them to create your own simulation environment with some customization possibilities.
Target Audience: This course is useful for everyone who wants to understand how NX CAM simulation works and what is available in this product area. This training is a prerequisite for the advanced series.
