PMI (Product and Manufacturing Information) is the application of dimension and tolerances directly on a CAD model. PMI is part of the actual CAD model; previously the drawing held the manufacturing and process information. PMI and the model-based definition allows you to directly import it in the drawing so there is no discrepancy between the two files.

In this presentation, we’ll discuss and review the link between PMI and the CAD drawing, apply GD&T directly to the part model and verifying in the modeling application. Presented by Elizabeth Davis, NX Application Engineer.

Teamcenter provides digital mockup and visualization capability so everyone in the product lifecycle can access and collaborate with 2D and 3D design data and make informed decisions. PLM visualization allows you to visualize and investigate your design data with ease.

In this presentation, Teamcenter Application Engineer Bryce Copple will provide a demonstration on how teams can utilize Teamcenter’s visual tools to facilitate an engineering review.

To be competitive, companies today must deliver quality products faster than ever before. In a world of increasingly complex designs, shorter time to market, and consumer demand for flawless execution all while being innovative, the need for simulation-driven design has never been greater.

Best-in-class designers are increasingly using simulation tools to quickly improve designs, meet complex customer requirements and reduce time-to-market. To meet this increased pressure, best-in-class senior managers support and promote non-expert simulation usage by their design teams.

The use of simulation tools early in the design phase allows for many iterations of a product to be tested virtually improving the overall quality of the end product. These tools, in the hands of the design team, also improves simulation workflows allowing your expert simulation team to start with better, more fully defined designs more likely to pass a more rigorous testing regime. In this webinar, we will present an overview of the simulation-driven design tools in NX, help you reduce your simulation bottlenecks, and achieve success in your next product launch.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the simulation of a physical phenomenon using a numerical mathematic technique referred to as the Finite Element Method, or FEM. Engineers can use these simulations to reduce the number of physical prototypes and run virtual simulations on a comprehensive digital twin to optimize their designs.

Bringing FEA in-house is a critical part of building a more complete digital twin for your products. However, it can be a daunting task when suppliers and customers are working with a constantly changing mix of CAD platforms and analysis requirements. In this edition of our Xcelerator Lunch series, we will show you how Simcenter Femap can help you share data and collaborate in the design and analysis of engineered products, from consumer goods to aerospace components. Presented by Adrian Jensen, PE, Senior Application Engineer.

In this presentation, we'll discuss the benefits of working with an NX CAD Part in NX CAM vs a CAD Neutral Format.

NX supports vendor-neutral standard exchange formats and popular CAD/CAM systems, with neutral format translators included in most NX software packages. While NX CAM has no issues handling design data from other CAD systems, using NX to design and manufacture parts has several additional benefits. 

Key topics touched on will include:

  • PMI
  • Lost information: threads, material info, etc.
  • Revisions
  • Design for manufacturability
  • Machine setup / fixturing (digital twin)

Presented by Aaron Blake, NX CAM Digital Manufacturing Engineer.
