The latest release of NX for manufacturing (January 2019) introduces new and enhanced capabilities for a wide range of applications, such as mold and die manufacturing, production machining and multi-axis milling. Meanwhile, the integrated additive manufacturing functions help you to design, prepare and print breakthrough products that were simply impossible to manufacture using traditional technologies.
Capabilities will help you gain productivity and improve part quality.
The CAM Ribbon is simplified, with larger pictures used for
Pick on Path with IPW
In the simple Play mode, Pick on Path now displays the
current status of the IPW.
Levels and Motions
Tool paths may now be investigated layer by layer for Operation types that cut by level.
Color By Motion Output Type
The Motion Output Type option is now available in the Ribbon Bar.
Collison Report for Guiding Curves
Variable Guiding Curves operations now detect and analyze gouges.
Bottom-up Cutting in Adaptive Milling
In Adaptive Milling, Bottom Up Cutting now controls stock removal between cut levels.
Cycles with References Generic Motion
Easily create cycle-based Generic Motion operations that can be templatized for reuse.
Turning Tool Holder Enhancements
Multiple enhancements allow further definition of holders for standard turning tools.
Gouge Check and IPW for Multi Tools
NX now supports material removal, collision check, and gouge check for multi-tools during Machine Code Based machine tool simulation.
Custom Feeds and Speeds
Custom Feed and Speed parameters for closed area engages can now be specicied in Cavity Mill, Rest Milling, Corner Rough, Floor and Wall, and Planar Mill operations.
Merge Tool Paths
Multiple operations can now be combined into a single operation containing a single merged tool path.
Coolant for Open and Closed Areas
Coolant options can now be specified separately for Open and Closed Areas in Planar, Cavity, Floor and Wall, and Adaptive Mill Operations.
Highlight Collisions in Machine Code Based Simulation
When performing Machine Code Based Simulation, collisions and gouges now highlight when you stop the simulation and drag the machine tool axis sliders or type in values.
Tube Milling Enhancements
Tube Roughing and Tube Finishing operations can now create the central curve automatically based on the specified Cut Area.
Customize Cut Level Items into Dialogs
New customizable Cut Levels items are now available for Cavity Mill, Zlevel Mill, Variable Axis Zlevel Mill, and Plunge Mill operation dialog boxes that allows you to flatten the dialog box structure.
