Siemens NX 2020 for Designers

Siemens NX 2020 for Designers, 13th Edition

Siemens NX 2020 for Designers is a comprehensive book that introduces the users to feature based 3D parametric solid modeling using the NX software. The book covers all major environments of NX with a thorough explanation of all tools, options, and their applications to create real-world products. More than 40 mechanical engineering industry examples and additional 35 exercises given in the book ensure that the users properly understand the solid modeling design techniques used in the industry and are able to efficiently create parts, assemblies, drawing views with bill of materials as well as learn the editing techniques that are essential to make a successful design. In this edition, four industry specific projects are also provided for free download to the users to practice the tools learned and enhance their skills.

Keeping in mind the requirements of the users, the textbook first introduces sketching and part modeling and then gradually progresses to cover assembly, surfacing, and drafting. To make the users understand the concepts of Mold Design and GD&T, two chapters are added in this textbook. Written with the tutorial point of view and the learn-by-doing theme, the textbook caters to the needs of both novice and advanced users of NX and is ideally suited for learning at your convenience and pace.
