Download Work-Holding Devices for Your NX CAM Reuse Library

By Aaron Frankel

During our opening NX CAM Tech Tip, “The benefits of a manufacturing setup; and how to create one,” you may have spotted us using hardware and work-holding devices from the Reuse Library. Some of you asked if these components could be made available for download. We thought this was a great request. So here they are.

Find milling vises, chucks, clamps and much more in the NX CAM Reuse Library Samples

Instructions for downloading and installing the NX CAM Reuse Library Samples are posted here in our NX for Manufacturing forum. You’ll need a valid customer webkey to download the data. And to help illustrate how to use the samples, we produced this short tech tip video.

We also produced this additional tech tip video on how to create a CAM component for your Reuse Library.

Are you looking for a specific component?
Do you have a component that you’d like to share with others?
Let your online community know in the NX for Manufacturing forum. Someone who can help might be listening.

Credits: Michael Mannino, one of our CAM experts based the USA, is the originator of this sample library and was pleased to hear about your interest. He jumped at the opportunity to share his collection. Thanks for sharing Mike!
