NX CAM review by Denzel Philip B.

"Excellent Experience with Engineering Project"

What do you like best?

I liked the fact that the software allowed users to simulate manufacturing of parts before proceeding to physical operations to manufacture parts. This allows users to save time and money in the manufacturing process in the prototyping phase through simulating methods of manufacturing. Moreover, the ability to generate and extract G-Codes serves as a useful feature.

What do you dislike?

I first learned how the concept of G-Codes and the extraction of G-Codes via NX CAM last summer. Considering that it was a summer class with condensed amount of time to learn new material, the only comment I can make in regard to improvement for NX CAM would be user friendliness. In comparison to SolidWorks, NX took me a little more time to learn how to navigate through features. Other than that, I'm sure that with more practice over time I will be very proficient in the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

NX CAM serves as a useful tool for those seeking to save time and money through simulating manufacturing processes in the prototype phase before proceeding to any physical operations. It allows for optimization of manufacturing methods to maximize efficiency. Moreover, the program is able to generate and extract G-Codes for manufacturing instructions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently, I am working on a project that requires 3D printing via selective laser sintering. I am planning to use what I learned from extracting G-codes to help me with printing.

"User-friendly interface"

What do you like best?

Besides continually upgrading modules and commands user-defined and friendly interview is a big plus. Personally modifiable menus are very helful whilst preparing Nc programs for huge Aerospace parts. And new commands on generating machine motiones before the post process saves a lot of time.

What do you dislike?

IPW stock control and Simulations and verifications can be improved. While working with big aerostructural parts and hundreds of operations sometimes kernel crashes maybe a new option can divide programs into separate files and then merge them again that's another Nc engineering daily burden with even powerful workstations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Fast and quick adaptation of template nc programs and tool libraries to new jobs is a huge plus in 3 shift working environments.

What Computer-Aided Manufacturing solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Tricky to learn but very useful!"

What do you like best?

I love the versatility of defining the cutting area, specifically for milling and Zlevel profiles.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that it is not as intuitive as other CAM software. There are quite a few settings to change and set that are unclear in terms of what they exactly do, at least when you are first starting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch tutorials to learn the nuances for CAM!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to use this path planning software based on 3D models as opposed to generating point clouds by hand! Defining process parameters allows me to customize the movement of the tool and tailor each path to what I need. I have saved so much time using NX CAM!

"Most Powerful CAD System"

What do you like best?

I love how much NX can do. No other CAD program has the customizability and power of NX processors, and it shows. While its GUI leaves something to be wanted, the tradeoff is some of the most advanced and useful tools to model complex shapes with intricate geometry.

What do you dislike?

It has little help when using the product. The help function is pretty poor which is not ideal for such a complicated tool. It takes time to learn and understand the potential, which many people don't have time for, and thus hate the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I model many sketches and products in NX before bringing them to life.

"Good 3D engineering software"

What do you like best?

I really like its simplicity when you do an ensemble and the tree at the left side, it is really intuitive and keeps you up to date of every part you include.

What do you dislike?

It requires more power than other softwares in the market without a remarkably higher performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As I always say, test it by yourself it is the best way to know if it improves your current design software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

what I use this software for is to design manufacturing processes and the benefits I realized when using it are mainly that it is really easy to use and that you feel extremely confortable when designing with it.

"Very user friendly and easy to use"

What do you like best?

Ability yo machine parts with complex geometry using 5-axis tool path. Very quick programming with the use of volume based milling and automatic feature recognition.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I could find in particular. I see only great features in the software. It is an integrated software system which can program CNC machine tools, control robotic cells, drive 3D printers and monitor product quality.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make more companies aware of the great features of it by conducting workshops

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rapid protoyping, post processing and machining simulations and monitoring product quality.

"Smoother workflow with CAD integration"

What do you like best?

The workflow is smooth when integrated with NX CAD. It has a vast machine library and tool repository.

What do you dislike?

The advanced level of tools means good training and lots of practice is needed to get comfortable with the NX CAM.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use to generate CNC code for machining components. It is easy to switch to NX CAD and use synchronous modeling to correct any part- tool interference and tolerance problems that show up when running machining simulations.

"Great compatibility"

What do you like best?

In addition to the CAD software of NX being very intuitive and generates ease for complex operations, the cam addition is just as great. Powerful tool with very easy CAD/CAM conversation.

What do you dislike?

Not that much, very great and powerful program. Can be slow sometimes on my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend for easy cam generation and use

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ease of generating tool paths for CNC machining.

"Good CAM software for SMEs"

What do you like best?

The easy to use interface coupled the wide array of functions makes life easy

What do you dislike?

Difficult to learn at first and one needs to be trained by a professional to obtain good command over the software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CNC coding for parts used in our project.

Benefits I realised are I think it’s adaptability to various CNCs and it is widely accepted by many machinists
