There are tons of new features and updates in NX 11 that make updating to the next version of Siemens NX worthwhile.

We held this live webinar on April 20, 2017

 

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIALS:

In this video we demonstrate the variable surface area toolpath to swarf cut cavity walls as an alternate toolpath for contour profile. Contour profile is a great toolpath for swarf cutting walls using your 5-axis machine to cut normal to the wall and be able to decrease your machining times by 10x or greater.

But there are situations where contour profile just doesn't work. In our example you can see where it just won't cut the wall. Ninety-five percent of the time I use it without issue, but I'd like to show an alternate for when you can't get it to work.
