Capabilities & Software Utilization

FACE Engineering utilizes Siemens NX (Formerly Unigraphics NX) Designer Mach Bundles coupled with Teamcenter integration for data, change and bill of material management. This ensures integrity of data and ease of management for clients / projects by allowing the latest data to be consolidated and available in real time.

FACE offers strong Siemens NX product knowledge and utilization skills for surfacing, solid modelling, large / complex assembly modelling and drafting as well as strong skills in data management. Specific areas of skill include:

  • Large assembly modeling In excess of 4000 parts, 15 plus levels.
  • Teamcenter structure management and revision control.
  • Teamcenter / NX integration of reuse library.
  • Teamcenter data import.
  • Import of third party supplier files and integration into part families for use in reuse libraries.
  • Part family generation leveraging the combined use of expressions, features and components to allow part family generation of assemblies, including the use of deformable parts with the inclusion of arrangements.
  • Teamcenter / NX integration of fastener assemblies.
  • Teamcenter manufacturing process planning.

FACE is able to export neutral format files to aid downstream manufacturing processes, files can be provided in the following formats:
