FEMAP API online seminarThis seminar is going to introduce the world of automation and optimization accessible through FEMAP’s Application Programming Interface (API). FEMAP provides a robust set of finite element modeling and post-processing functionality.  At times, however, you may need a specific capability that is not included in the standard product. The FEMAP API lets you customize FEMAP to meet your specific needs.

Now, programming can be an intimidating topic, but the goal of this seminar is to provide a beginner’s guide. We’re going to start with the most basic “Hello, World!” example, then explore a selection of existing (and incredibly useful) programs available to all, and finally take a look at some complex real-world applications. In addition to showcasing the available tools, we will provide a road map to learning the FEMAP API.

This webinar will be held on:
Thursday, July 25
8:30am PT / 11:30am ET

NX CAM webinar CircleIn this webinar we'll look at WAVElinking and how Master Model technique can be used to save time in CAM programming. It will show how using a master model approach in combination with WAVElinks can open up a lot of great CAD/CAM features that are significantly easier in NX versus other CAD/CAM packages (assembly work and part simplification).

The focus will be on:

  • Preventing edits to the master model
  • How you can quickly make simplified versions of part geometry to assist CAM programming while upholding the master model concept

NX CAD Associative Fixture Design webinar CircleWhether you’re a job-shop working with neutral CAD data (STEP, IGES, Parasolid, PDF, etc.) or your company is vertically integrated with design and manufacturing in-house, you need to hold the part in place with an easy to use, configurable fixture or jig. Designing custom fixtures and jigs for each new job can be time consuming, tedious, and, most importantly, costly.

One-off or small production runs vs. high-volume manufacturing and maximizing work area utilization should be considered when designing a work part holding solution. You may want to choose to use a work holding vice with custom faces for soft or hard jaws. A well designed fixture can minimize tooling costs, tool changes, and unnecessary cutting head movements to keep cutting chips instead of cutting air. You may find a "pretty close" solution from a previous job but the CAD rework is too difficult or time consuming so you design a one-off fixture. The solution is to reduce your tooling costs by leveraging reuse.

In this webinar, we'll showcase some fixture-building techniques using CAD tools available in Siemens CAM software packages. Using basic modeling and assembly techniques combined with NX’s powerful Synchronous Modeling toolset, you'll be able to quickly create a tool holding solution that's both associative and reusable.
