Shape Control with NX

By Christian Kelley

You should only be limited by what can be manufactured, not what can be modeled.

Stephen Samuel Founder and President of Design Visionaries has just finished a lecture on designing complex shapes with NX.  I figured that since Mr. Samuel has been presenting at this conference for the last 15 years and has written a few books about using NX, I should probably see what he has to say.

Briefly, he compared using NX well to playing a musical instrument.  It takes a certain amount of practice, creativity and artistry to become a good industrial designer.

The bulk of the lecture was a demonstration on creating a complex shape with NX.  Take a look at a consumer good. If the light is reflecting off of it evenly and regularly, the designer knew what he was doing.
