  • Customer View of Manufacturing Work Instructions with Teamcenter

Part Manufacturing (NX CAM)

  • Using geometry groups for operations
  • User experience/success stories, particularly with newer modules: feature based machining; new holemaking module; Floor/wall machining
  • "How does 5 axis really work" -creating machinable geometry -CAM side (projection vector / tool axis/ drive surface / part surface lead-lag-tilt, etc.
  • "Intro to <feature>"" type of presentations -what is a UDE -getting started in postbuilder
  • Maintaining associativity with the model

NX Design

  • Customer view of using Synchronous
  • NX Large Assembly Management
  • Modeling Techniques to Ensure Successful CAE Simulations
  • Weld Variants / Publishing
  • What does the future designer "desktop" look like? How does the vision look across different roles? Mobility, google glass, gesture devices, touch screens etc.
  • Navigating and debugging large CAD models
  • Enabling multiple users to work on and edit a single CAD model

NX Extended Applications (Design Validation, Mechatronics, Routing, Die Wizard, etc.)

  • Customer use of Product Template Studio (PTS) 
  • Integrating TC Workflows with an NX Title Block
  • ECAD/MCAD Design Collaboration from Components to End-Product Simulation including cable routing for wire harnesses 
  • Check-Mate implementation success story: discuss checks implemented, benefits found, validation of model quality; include roundtable to discuss tool improvements 
  • Check-Mate implementation success story: discuss checks implemented, benefits found, validation of model quality; include roundtable to discuss tool improvements
  • Visual Reporting for the NX User - examples and benefits
