NX CAD Training: Free Form Modeling

2 days, $1100 per attendee

This custom course introduces basic and intermediate level applications of modeling, surfacing, and introduces Synchronous Modeling techniques with the emphasis on being able to create plastic molded components. This course is based on features and tasks designers and engineers face in their day to day work. Instructor led portions are interspersed with project style application learning along with Q&A. After attending this class you should be able to roll up your sleeves and start designing in NX with confidence.
