NxRev’s Power Hours are free in-depth training sessions for various engineering solutions.
Come join us on the third Thursday of each month at 10am PST, for an hour of insight and power tricks for your favorite design tools.
Each session will have a 45 minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of Q & A.
Working with 3rd Party CAD DataFebruary 21st, 2019
Did you know that Creo now has the ability to open native CAD files from Inventor, SolidWorks, CATIA, and NX without a translation process? Translating files into a neutral format from one CAD system to another is how most geometry issues are created. We will demonstrate the ability to convert “dumb” geometry into fully parametric features, and we’ll also demonstrate the full direct manipulation capabilities through Flexible Modeling.
Windchill – Beyond Simple CAD VaultingMarch 21st, 2019
Did you know that Windchill can do so much more than manage your CAD data? Discover the powerful PLM capabilities that come bundled as part of the base package of Windchill. We will cover capabilities such as Document Management with Windchill’s Microsoft Office Desktop Integration, Promotion Workflows to release your data, BOM Management, and Navigate!
Sharing Data from Windchill to your ERP SystemApril 25th, 2019
How many times have you heard of an engineer recreating a BOM in your ERP system when that same BOM already exists inside of Windchill? Don’t have your engineers duplicating effort, instead, see how Windchill and your ERP system can be integrated to pass and pull information. Eliminate the possibility of error by automating tasks between both systems, and let your engineers focus on product design!
Large Assembly Management Best PracticesMay 23rd, 2019
Don’t just learn about Creo’s Large Assembly Management tools, learn how to maximize those tools and capabilities to improve Large Assembly performance. Focus on design and not on your patience skills!
Creo & ANSYS Discovery LiveJune 20th, 2019
Creo includes simulation tools so engineers can test how models might respond to various physical loads and forces. While simulation capabilities can be invaluable, they tax computer CPUs and cost time. For every change to the model, you have to run a simulation study and wait for your computer to churn out the results. It might work pretty fast, but multiply that by all the different iterations you could go through, and the seconds and minutes adds up. Creo Simulation Live will allow you to make changes in the model and view the results instantaneously – no more waiting!
Unlocking The Power of Master ModelingJuly 18th, 2019
Master Modeling techniques can enable users to have a single model that is used for all downstream processes from design, drafting, in-process models, tooling, and simulations. Utilizing Master Modeling techniques allow companies to perform concurrent engineering, and maintain full associativity across the entire product structure.
Building Curvature Continuous SurfacesAugust 22nd, 2019
The surfaces you see on your screen will not always be as smooth as you think when held up to scrutiny. This session will provide an introduction to several Creo tools that can not only create curvature continuous surfaces, but also analyze the quality of the surfaces and their connections.
Measuring & Collaborating with Creo ViewSeptember 19th, 2019
Easily collaborate, review and redesign with Windchill’s visualization tool – Creo View. It’s a simple tool that anyone can easily learn visualize CAD models outside of Creo Parametric. Companies have referred to Creo View it as the “PDF reader” of CAD models.
Making Data Available with NavigateOctober 17th, 2019
Need to provide STEP files or drawing PDF’s to your colleagues? Perhaps to a manufacturing engineer? Or a manager? Tired of having to manually create those files? Tired of re-teaching someone how to use Creo to view parts, assemblies, and drawings for inspection? Then you’ll want to attend this session as we demonstrate how simple it is for anyone to access CAD data through Navigate!
Troubleshooting Regeneration IssuesNovember 14th, 2019
Regeneration failures are bound to happen in any CAD application, but Creo 5.0 takes the guess work out of the determining the root cause and it provides various tools to correct the issues. Learn how tools such as automatic notifications, edit references, and configuration options can facilitate generation failures.
Participating in WorkflowsDecember 19th, 2019
Automation is wonderful thing! Learn how your company can move away from manual, paper process ECO’s that are inefficient, provide almost no visibility and have virtually no traceability. Windchill workflows can help automate virtually any task required to manage and release your CAD data and other business needs.
