NX for Design Features

Accelerate innovation with leading-edge 3D product design software

The increasing complexity of products, development processes, and design teams is a challenge to find new tools and methods to deliver greater innovation and higher quality at lower cost. NX product design software from Siemens PLM Software delivers power, efficiency and cost savings that extend beyond the design process to all phases of product development by some powerful features including:

     ·        2D & 3D CAD Modeling: NX provide you with the industry’s most powerful and versatile CAD modeling tools.

     ·        Design for Additive Manufacture: Design, optimize, and build metal and plastic components using the latest additive manufacturing methods.

     ·        Modeling Technology Platform: Speed innovation by using the most productive modeling approaches interchangeably along with facet-based modeling.

A direct connection between the design of electrical and mechanical systems

With products today increasing in complexity with many, relying on integrated electronics. It is critical that designers of both systems collaborate throughout the development process in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion. 

NX delivers a unified platform for electromechanical design. An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view.

     ·        Mechanical - Electrical Design: Integrating mechanical, electronic and electrical components in electromechanical products is crucial to aerospace, automotive, electronics, machinery and medical device manufacturers.

     ·        Mechanical - Electronics Design: An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view.


A direct connection between the design of electrical and mechanical systems

Bringing product analytics and validation into the 3D design process.

NX helps you ensure product quality, as well as reduce errors and rework by delivering visual product analytics and validation tools that enable you to quickly synthesize information, check designs for compliance to requirements, and make informed decisions.

Design Validation is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution, like:

     ·        Design & Requirements Validation: NX gives you automated design validation software tools that automatically and continuously monitor your designs for adherence to standards and requirements.

     ·        Design for Manufacturing: NX gives you high-definition 3D tools that automate and formalize the design review process for manufacturability, helping you identify design issues that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture.

     ·        Visual Reporting: NX provides high-definition 3D (HD3D) visual reporting to help you instantly gather product information and visualize its impact in the context of the 3D design.

     ·        Design Simulation for Performance Validation: With design-integrated motion, structural, and thermal simulation tools in NX, you can quickly compare design alternatives and optimize performance characteristics to create better, more robust designs earlier in the development process, while speeding the overall design time– meaning faster time to market.

Quickly and easily create engineering drawings from 3D models.


NX includes powerful and productive capabilities for 2D design, layout, drafting, annotation and documentation like:

     ·        Highly efficient drafting tools: The drafting software automatically creates drawing views from 3D part and assembly models, and helps you align and scale drawing views and arrange drawing sheets.

     ·        Comply with drafting standards: NX makes it easy to comply with major national and international drafting standards. Simply select your desired standard to make sure that all elements of your drawings are in compliance.

     ·        Comprehensive annotation tools: document your drawings with manufacturing requirements.

     ·        Optimize 2D Design and Drafting: NX enhances 2D conceptual design with the use of intelligent, design-centric, reusable objects called 2D components. Automatically creating an assembly based on a layout accelerates the product design phase by allowing you to explore concepts in 2D, and iterate and transfer it to 3D. NX Layout also reduces the cost of training, maintenance and implementation.

     ·        Trouble-free 2D Modification: Synchronous technology for 2D, an advanced capability that accelerates editing of 2D CAD data - even files from other systems. Resulting in fast and efficient changes in layouts and engineering drawings.

     ·        Advanced change tracking: reduces drawing checking time and eliminates errors.

Innovative Design with Best-in-Class Computer-Aided Industrial Design Software

Distinctive design and styling gives companies a competitive advantage. Design is the key differentiator in most of today’s industries. Of course, the design must not only be visually appealing, but it must be functional, manufactural and affordable to build, support and maintain.

NX delivers flexible, robust computer-aided industrial design and styling software that accelerates your product engineering by providing fast concept designs that can be directly used in modeling with the help of features like:

    ·        Freeform Shape Modeling: NX ensure that you can create the most complex freeform shapes quickly, with ease and adaptability to change.

     ·        Reverse Engineering: Reduce the time required to develop CAD models from physical objects with NX. You can scan your data and immediately begin building supports for 3D printing, creating molds based on the shape, including it in an assembly, analyzing it, or performing any other operation that you would do with CAD data.
