NX Essentials for Designers
At the completion of Essentials for NX Designers the student will productively develop solid models, detail drawings, and product assemblies. The class introduces assembly modeling in the context of a real-life scenario that includes parts modeled by the student as well as part models that have already been created. This reinforces the student's understanding of the flexibility of the solid modeling and assembly tool as it can be applied in the real world of product development collaboration.
