This textbook explains how to create solid models, assemblies and drawings using Siemens NX 8.0. NX is a three dimensional CAD/CAM/CAE software developed by Siemens PLM Software Inc., Germany. This textbook is based on NX 8.0. Users of earlier releases can use this book with minor modifications. We provide files for exercises via our website. All files are in NX 6.0 so readers can open the files using NX 6.0 and later releases. It is assumed that readers of this textbook have no prior experience in using Siemens NX for modeling 3D parts. This textbook is suitable for anyone interested in learning 3D modeling using Siemens NX. Each chapter deals with the major functions of creating 3D features using simple examples and step by step, self-paced exercises. Additional drawings of 3D parts are provided at the end of each chapter for further self exercises. The final exercises are expected to be completed by readers who have fully understood the content and completed the exercises in each chapter.
