NX CAM Fundamentals Training

This 4-day course introduces the usage of modeling and assemblies, the NX interface, then gets into 3-axis machining fundamentals including:

  • Manufacturing Operation Navigator
  • Geometry groups
  • Tool groups, methods
  • General/planar/cavity milling
  • Drilling
  • Mill control
  • CAM templates
  • Post processor interaction
  • Shop documentation techniques.

Real World Use

This course is based on real world use, and presents tasks programmers face in their day-to-day work. Instructor Michael Grant works with NX10 every day in a dual role, helping run the rapid prototyping fabrication shop for Sherpa Design, and providing support for Applied CAx software clients.

Instructor-led portions are interspersed with project-style application use. Our class is based on a combination of real world examples and allows time for attendees to also address programming their own parts. We built our content to get users up to speed and programming quickly.

Our classes are limited to between 4-to-6 students and are similar to one-on-one personal NX trainings, yet with the benefit of learning in a group environment where peer knowledge is shared and discussed.

Course includes a color copy of our own 200+/- page book and activity parts.

Instructor: Michael Grant

Ratings and reviews: Read praise and testimonials from previous attendees

Prerequisite: Prior understanding and experience with the fundamentals of solid modeling and CNC machine programming. You have used another CAM package before. This could also be a good upgrade class if you are working in 2 or more releases behind the current release of NX.
