Learning contents:

The participant will learn the following knowledge:    

  • Overview of the functional range
  • Introduction to the work environment of Siemens NX
  • Basics of 3D-CAD medelling
  • Feature-based modelling
  • Freeform modelling
  • Generation of technical drawings
  • Assembly modelling
  • Finite element method (FEM) and multi-body simulation (MBS) with Siemens NX


Learning targets:

Students are able to create their own 3D geometric models in the CAD system, to generate drawings due to the created geometry and then carry out FE-studies and kinematic simulations using the integrated CAE tools. With advanced, knowledge-based functionalities of Siemens NX the participants will learn to automate the creation of geometry and thus to ensure the reusability of the models.

Study requirements:

Dealing with technical drawings is required.
