Develop Products Faster with NX Software
Siemens NX software is an integrated product design, engineering and manufacturing solution that helps you deliver better products faster and more efficiently.
Integrated CAD/CAM/CAE: Smarter Decisions, Better Products
NX provides key capabilities for fast, efficient and flexible product development:
- Advanced solutions for conceptual design, 3D modeling and documentation
- Multi-discipline simulation for structural, motion, thermal, flow and multi-physics applications
- Complete part manufacturing solutions for tooling, machining and quality inspection
NX software help you design, simulate and manufacture better products faster by enabling smarter decisions in an integrated product development environment.
The NX Advantage
NX is the industry’s most integrated, flexible and efficient solution for product design, engineering and manufacturing.
- No other solution employs synchronous technology for flexible design in an open environment
- No other solution integrates multi-discipline simulation so tightly into the development process
- No other solution offers such a full range of advanced part manufacturing applications
- No other solution is integrated as tightly with Teamcenter, the world’s leading Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) platform
Accelerate Innovation with Leading-Edge 3D Product Design Software
The increasing complexity of products, development processes and design teams challenges you to find new tools and methods to deliver greater innovation and higher quality at lower cost. NX 3D 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.
NX mechanical design software delivers comprehensive modeling, enabling you to use the most productive modeling approaches interchangeably – from explicit solid and surface modeling to parametric and direct modeling.
NX provides the most powerful CAD assembly design tools available. Supporting both top-down and bottom-up design techniques, NX gives you advanced assembly management and navigation for the most complex assemblies.
Using familiar terminology and workflows, NX helps you efficiently create sheet metal parts based on the knowledge of material properties and manufacturing processes. NX sheet metal design tools incorporate material and bending information, enabling the model to represent both the formed component and flattened blank shapes.
Designing from product templates helps you accelerate design, standardize product design processes, and maximize the time and cost savings of re-use. With NX, you can quickly create templates from existing designs and easily re-use them for new designs.
Drafting and Documentation
CAD Drafting and 3D Annotation Tools to Accelerate 2D Design, Drawing Creation, and Product Documentation
Does your company use both 2D and 3D CAD tools? Do you maintain separate systems for 2D and 3D design work? NX includes powerful and productive capabilities for 2D design, layout, drafting, annotation, and documentation that are ideally suited for 2D, hybrid 2D/3D, and 3D design environments.
NX delivers production-proven solutions for 2D design, layout and drafting. With these tools, you can more quickly create layouts and produce drawings that comply with major drafting standards.
With NX, you can fully document designs with 3D annotations on your CAD models. You can re-use the product and manufacturing information in drawings, validation, manufacturing and other applications.
Productivity for Specialized Design Applications
NX offers specialized welding design software that helps you define, document and model welds and other material joining features in your products. This focused welding design application streamlines definition of connections, welds and processes, and captures information for use in strength analysis, product and manufacturing information (PMI), and 2D drawings for manufacturing.
With dedicated NX tools you can quickly define joining features, validate weld locations, create accurate annotations for drawings and manufacturing, and publish information for structural analysis and process planning.
With fluid and mechanical routing tools you can quickly and accurately define paths in assemblies, then select and place standard parts for tubes, pipes, conduit, raceways and HVAC ducts. Design rules checking (DRC) helps you locate and resolve problems to ensure quality.
You can engineer innovative, durable and lightweight products and parts made of advanced composite materials with Siemens software that works directly with NX. Specialized applications support the unique and complex design and manufacturing methodologies for low-weight, high-strength and durable composite structures.
