NX provides powerful integrated Computer-Aided Design (CAD) that
enables seamless manufacturing - from digital part models to finished products.
By programming using the digital twin of your entire job setup,
including the workpiece, fixtures and machine tool, and tooling you:
Accelerate Part Model Preparation:
Technology helps you directly edit any CAD model regardless of its complexity
or how it was created. As you prepare part models for machining, NX
maintains full associativity to the original CAD data, enabling easy
implementation of design changes requested by your engineering department or
Drive Manufacturing Processes
Using PMI: You can capture and associate a part's manufacturing
requirements directly to the 3D model using Product and Manufacturing
Information (PMI). PMI enables you to automate NC programming, saving up
to 90 percent of programming time. NX utilizes PMI for Coordinate Measuring
Machines (CMM) inspection programming by automatically choosing probes,
inspection methods and operations.
Leverage Fully-Integrated CAD
Tools: Whether you model the part from a drawing, modify an existing model or
you create a job setup assembly, you can use NX's comprehensive CAD functions.
Standardize Manufacturing with a
Master Model: NX leverages the master model technology to facilitate
concurrent manufacturing by linking all functions to the single model definition
of the part - from part model design and optimization to NC programming and CNC
machining to quality inspection.
