Exercises in NX
When dealing with large assemblies, take advantage of the NX loading options in order to work more efficient with your design. By using partial loading and lightweight representation, you are simply loading a coarse facet model which frees your memory usage.
Take a look at the video to see the increase of performance.

Get moving with your organic shape designs by using the NX freeform tools. This exercise presents a quick concept mockup of a speaker using a combination of conventional modeling techniques together with x-form, surface meshes and splines.

KBE – Knowledge Based Engineering
Use parameters and features to create robust and reusable models in NX. By utilizing expressions and parameters in NX, you can make sure your designs can be reused in future projects.
See the video to see how you can parametrically control the geometry of a ladder.
PTS – Product Template Studio
Utilize the parameters you defined in the previous exercise to create a template for your design. This means that you will create your own dialogue box, based on the ladder, which makes your model easy for anyone to reuse.
See the video to see how you can make your own graphic user interface (GUI).
