How to Create Assembly Arrangements in Siemens NX

What are NX Arrangements and How to Create Them

Create different working positions in an assembly arrangement or model using NX

NX Assembly Arrangements allow the user to configure and show different working positions in assembly documentation. This helps in making different views or positions of your model, letting you quickly jump back to those scenarios.

Large NX Models -- Siemens Whitepaper and Helpful Tips for 3DCS Tolerance Analysis

Five Tips for Large Assembly Performance and Tips for Large Models in NX

Included is the link to the Siemens whitepaper Five Tips for Large Assembly Performance and tips for working with large models in NX

Let's be honest, working with large models in any CAD platform can be difficult. DCS has put out a number of videos and webinars to try and help with this, but there is always something else that can be done to simplify a menu, a model, a move or a method. Here are some helpful tips when working in NX on large models, and a great whitepaper from Siemens on the topic.
