ATI NX 10 Synchronous Modeling

When CAD geometry is imported into NX from other systems or the user needs to work with a idealized part, it typically consists of non- parametric bodies. There are various philosophies regarding how subsequent modifications are to be made. The geometry can be 'converted' to parametric data by recreating the part features, using the imported body as a reference, but this is very time- consuming and is not much different than designing from scratch. An alternative method is to use Synchronous Modeling tools, The commands in this application allow organized design modifications to be made to non - parametric bodies. Faces can be moved, deleted, offset, re-blended, etc., and adjacent body faces react to those changes. If History Mode is active, these operations are chronologically added to the Part Navigator, and can be subsequently edited, If History-Free mode is active, the Synchronous Modeling commands still have the same functionality, but are not 'recorded' in the Navigator (and thus cannot be edited). This course covers the creation and editing of Synchronous Modeling features to modify existing non- parametric solid models. The course provides a good understanding of how and when to apply Synchronous Modeling to existing CAD data.
