NX Configuration and Training

NX Configuration

Sherpa Design has decades of in-house experience defining and deploying advanced design tools inside of NX.

Some of the ways we can help your team maximize the investment in a world-class system like NX include:

  • Site setup, configuration, and environment standardization
  • Workstation install scripting
  • Training in Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) and getting started with Model Based Definition (MBD). Begin the process toward your Model Based Enterprise (MBE).
  • Custom toolbars and company menus
  • Design automation through template parts and Product Template Studio (PTS)
  • Mentoring and Best Practices consulting
  • NX Routing library setup and maintenance

NX User Training

With our partner company Applied CAx, we offer customized training both in our classroom and onsite at your facility with our mobile classroom. We have developed focused training solutions that address the NX tools your company uses most in addition to release upgrade and special application classes.

Specific classes:
NX CAM Foundation training
NX CAD Foundation training
NX CAM Turning Foundation training

Our experienced instructors have been using UG/NX since 1996 so we know how the software works and how it has evolved over the years. We use it in our daily design work so we know it through real world experience. Make sure your NX instructors have the experience and real-world application backgrounds that results in high value training.


NX CAM Post Processors

NX Machine Post Processor development and optimization

Any CNC installation will have its own logic and movement quirks that require a carefully calibrated post-processor to operate properly. Creating a post from scratch is a resource-intensive proposition and errors can result in costly mistakes and perhaps damage to the machine itself.

Even pre-made posts will require some optimization on-site to ensure proper calibration. Our CAM experts are experienced with all aspects of post-processor development for 3-and 5-axis mills, as well as turn-mill centers, and can assist in getting your machine up and running quickly.

NX Simulation kits with full machine kinematics

An idle machine affects your bottom line. Machine downtime can be reduced significantly or avoided altogether by utilizing simulation kits. A sim kit will run concurrently during machine operation allowing for critical testing and simulation of new operations while avoiding costly interruptions - meaning your machine is always running.

In addition, sim kits are programmed for efficiency of operation allowing for maximum performance of the machine program during its operating lifetime. Our specialists have experience developing sim kits for a variety of applications and can assist you with a tailor-made solution.
