Course: NX3 Basic Manufacturing


NX3 Basic Manufacturing provides proven Toolpath creation techniques needed to become productive in the Manufacturing module.

Focusing on 2-3 Axis milling, the course covers: 2-Axis Planar Milling, Point to Point machining, Cavity milling, and 3-Axis Surface milling.

Using Manufacturing Assemblies (Master Models), students will develop, modfiy, output and document 2-3 Axis Milling and Drilling Toolpaths.

Intended for CNC Programmers and Manufacturing Engineers needing to create 2-3 Axis Toolpaths.

  • Practical NX Design or 40 hours of NX experience.
  • LIVE Online training requires each student attend a Free Demo of our Virtual Classroom, prior to their course.
Duration:    5 days, 8 hours per day at: Your Facility, or
                     10 days, 4 hours per day:      Live Online

Cost:            $ 1400.00 / student
