Project description


The e-learning for beginners and advanced learners

In this course, in 110 minutes of video, you will be shown everything you need to create photorealistic graphics of your products with Siemens NX, from the basics of NX rendering to Iray + -specific properties.

The prerequisite is that the participants already have construction experience with Siemens NX or have completed the first basic courses.

In addition to the general principles for creating a scene, different methods are shown how to work with libraries in order to optimally integrate the image generation into everyday life.

Of course, there is also the alternative or additional option to carry out the topic of NX rendering on your own product in-house. In this way, the optimal approach to generating photo-realistic images can be defined for your product portfolio.


Key user:

The training can be carried out based on the role of the key user who creates and manages scenes and materials. The estimated duration is 8:14 hours.

Industrial Designer:

The industrial designer also gets to see all the tips and tricks in dealing with special effects and settings for lighting and scenes in order to enhance the scenes. The estimated duration is 7:25 hours.

Mechanical Engineer:

The mechanical engineer is not neglected in this training with regard to the fast generation of renderings for presentations and product catalogs. The estimated duration is 2:11 hours.

The additional reading chapters on explanations of terms and theories of image synthesis round off this training. The estimated duration for all of the content is 9:20 hours.


NX enables the creation of images of varying complexity within the design process. In addition to the simple export option for creating screenshots, the True Shade toolbar enables the selection of reflective and textured materials, the definition of images for reflection, and simple lightning and background solutions.

For a higher degree of realism, image-based lighting and global lighting, shadow settings, but also complex background techniques must be used. These are made available by the Rendering Studio.

Each rendering shown on this website was created by Bizlearn using Siemens NX CAD. The new Ray Traced Studio - released in NX 9.0 - uses 64-bit technology to compute high quality product images. No additional software is required unless, e.g. Adobe Photoshop for material definition when textures are used in addition to the standard library materials. With NX12, the image calculation can be carried out on an Iray + server (Nvidia) can be outsourced in order to save performance.

Typical product design images, but also auto renderings and interior scenes can be calculated using the latest rendering technology developed by LightWork design, a leading global provider of rendering solutions.

NX Render is used successfully by several well-known brands for creating catalog images or design proposals. The consistent use of CAD software for development and rendering increases user comfort and profitability.

Scenes, materials, and lighting settings can be saved in a variety of ways to meet business needs. In general, no background knowledge is required for the designer to create a satisfactory product image, especially since the Ray Traced Studio became available, which automatically generates global lighting for a more realistic impression.
