Solutions for Aerospace Engineering and Manufacturing

Please join us for our next look at CAD-CAM solutions for aerospace engineering and manufacturing. All types of users are welcome from mechanical engineers, programmer-machinists, manufacturing managers to data architects and engineering directors.

Our great roster of presentations and demonstrations are free and open to anyone interested in engineering & manufacturing. Our location will be the friendly Diamond Knot Brewpub @ MLT in Mountlake Terrace. We've reserved a great space for everyone to gather, network, learn, and enjoy snacks and beverages.


HTC Vive VR headsetWe'll also be sharing a CAD dataset in our HTC Vive VR headset. Starting in NX 12.0.2, virtual reality capabilities are turned on in NX. Get a sense of the bleeding-edge vision for VR tech that NX developers have in mind.

A discussion about NX Continuous Release
Looking to the future of NX

Starting this January 2019, NX is slated to move towards a Continuous Release methodology. Join us as we discuss what this could look like, and how could it improve — or impact — your operations. Our CAD guru will get out his crystal ball and his behind-the-scenes knowledge from Siemens PLM on how Continuous Release might function, operate and behave.

Synchronous Modeling 2D & 3D Workflows and Why You Want to Use Them
+ What's new in NX 12.0.2
Synchronous Modeling is a sorely under-utilized tool in NX design/analysis/manufacturing workflows. It’s a powerful toolset that everyone gets as part of every NX seat, with no add-on necessary. Join us as we walk through some example use cases.

Matt Martin CAD/CAM
4:30 – 5:00

Faster to Market with Simcenter 3D
Discover an integrated NX tool to optimize workflows for complex development cycles.

Chris Cripps CAD/CAE
5:00 – 5:30

More on NX Open
In our recent NX Open webinar we showed the value of the NX API, what you can do with it and most importantly, how you do it. Join us as we demo those methods as well as additional automation tools in NX like SNAP or Block UI Styler.

Elizabeth Davis CAD/CAM
5:30 - 5:45 Breaktime
