Modular Design

MD-1 | Siemens NX Tutorial - Modular Design

Modular design doesn't just mean changing parameters, but also geometries, work steps, components or assemblies.
Part families, feature templates, model-based definition and, of course, methodology can not only shorten development time, but also reduce production costs.

Part Families, create and save master and variants

PF-1 | Siemens NX Tutorial - Part Families, create and save master and variants

The main topic "Modular Design" starts with the "Part Families" command.
This command allows you, to create variants of parts and assemblies, using spreadsheets.
The first course starts with a simple part that is to be created in different sizes. The storage locations for the master and variants are defined first. This is followed by the modelling of the master part, controlled by expressions.
These expressions are then entered into columns of a spreadsheet and filled with new values. In this way, variants of the master part in different sizes are created in a short time.

PF-3 | Siemens NX Tutorial - Complete Part Families with KRX (knowledge-enabled parts)

With krx-files you can add preview images to your part families, and select parameters that are necessary for the selection of the variant, and thus simplify installation and replacement.
We also switch features on and off via the spreadsheet.
And we will control the material via the part family.

Create Assemblies with Part Families

PF-4 | Siemens NX Tutorial - Create Assemblies with Part Families

Have you ever wished that you could just change a few filenames in a table and the parts in your assembly would be replaced? This is exactly what you can do with Part Families. And with "remember constraints" you can install the assembly in a predefined way. Pattern Component lets the number of copies follow the changing environment. And the size of the assembly can be replaced with a few clicks.
