NX 9.0 for Designers is a comprehensive textbook that introduces the users to feature based 3D parametric solid modeling using the NX 9.0 software. The textbook covers all major environments of NX with a thorough explanation of all tools, options, and their applications to create real-world products. In this textbook, about 60 mechanical engineering industry examples are used as tutorials and an additional 35 as exercises to ensure that the users can relate their knowledge and understand the design techniques used in the industry to design a product. After reading the textbook, the user will be able to create parts, assemblies, drawing views with bill of materials, and learn the editing techniques that are essential to make a successful design. Also, in this book, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that improve the productivity and efficiency of the user.

Keeping in mind the requirements of the users, the textbook at first introduces sketching and part modeling in NX 9.0, and then gradually progresses to cover assembly and drafting. Written with the tutorial point of view and the learn-by-doing theme, the textbook caters to the needs of both novice and advanced users of NX 9.0 and is ideally suited for learning at your convenience and pace.

Some of the Salient Features of this textbook are as follows:

  • Consists of 15 pedagogically sequenced chapters covering the Sketching, Modeling, Assembly, Drafting, 
    Synchronous, and  Sheet Metal Modeling environments of NX 9.0 
  • Consists of 848 pages, hundreds of illustrations, and a comprehensive coverage of NX 9.0 concepts and commands
  • Real-world projects and examples focusing on industry experience
  • Step-by-step examples that guide the user through the learning process
  • An effective introduction detailing the tools and commands covered in each chapter
  • Additional information is provided throughout the book in the form of tips and notes
  • Self-Evaluation test and review questions are provided at the end of each chapter so that the users can assess their knowledge
