At A Glance: Siemens NX
When engineering or manufacturing a product, it’s important to be able to predict its behavior in a host of different scenarios. During the product’s life cycle, designers work with engineers to develop and test as many aspects of the product as they can before rolling it out to the consumer. One way to accomplish these tests is through the construction of scale models and running them through the rigors of different types of stressors. Often these models can come up short in providing the detailed and accurate information needed, as various types of materials have to be substituted and environments approximated. In recent years, with the increase in computer processing power and highly developed physics equations, computer-based modeling has become accessible to product developers of all levels. Software like the NX software by Siemens uses highly advanced mathematical processes to compute engineering, design, and manufacturing analysis. An NX specialist can be a powerful and dynamic asset to any project.
NX specialists are highly-trained engineers or scientists with experience and knowledge from working with the NX software and in their respective fields. An NX specialist can use the NX software to conduct dynamic stress testing, parametric surface modeling, and thermal analysis, as well as much more. This modeling and analysis can be used to find potential faults in a product or identify over-engineered aspects that can lead to safer products and cheaper production costs. Hiring a freelance NX specialist on Upwork allows you to test products cost-effectively while keeping core internal talent on the task of developing the next round of products or improvements.
