1. Mechanical Design
NX has design solutions capabilities including Sophisticated freeform shape modeling, surface continuity and analysis, simulation and visualization tools. With the key in NX being the Integration with other industrial design, simulation, tooling, and machining applications
2. Electromechanical Design
NX brings together mechanical and electrical designers with a two way exchange of data, which enables each discipline to work with its own design systems while efficiently linking their efforts together. NX has tools that simplify the electrical design process with libraries of standard electrical connectors and components, automated bundle size calculations for space allocation and interference checking, and documentation for wire attachment manufacturing.
3. Mechanical Simulation
Mechanical Simulation, with the built in CAE tools have the ability to integrate multi-physics solvers, use PLM integration with advanced simulation structure management, as well as calculating linear and nonlinear stress, motion, vibration, dynamic response, durability, flow and thermal analysis and optimization
NX Machining capabilities include 3 axis, 5 axis, multi-function, high speed machining as well as CAD for NC programming. With the ability to machine 5-axis milling, NX machining can select, cut, and inspect difficult geometries with precise axis control.
5. Tooling & Fixture Design
NX Tooling & Fixture Design has the ability to Formalize and automate your tool and fixture design process, capture tooling design knowledge and re-use proven designs, and virtually prototype functional operation of tooling and fixtures. With these capabilities as well as others, it will help reduce CNC programming time and achieve better consistency in your tooling.
A View Creation Wizard saves time by simplifying drawing view creation and minimizes required input by only displaying options that are relevant for a given model or assembly. NX Drafting allows you to create isometric views from 2D view geometry
7. Ship design
NX Ship Structure enables the user to conceptualize and model the surfaces and landing curves of the hull, decks, transverse and longitudinal bulkheads. It provides the user with tools to easily create and detail the plates and profiles that make up the structure.
8. Mold Design
NX Mold Design optimizes the mold design process, delivering levels of productivity that dramatically outperform traditional CAD software. NX Mold Design delivers a step-by-step process that promotes the most efficient workflow, while integrating complex elements of design technology into automated sequences.
9. Industrial Design and Styling
For faster time-to-market and reduced design costs, NX provides industrial design and styling tools united in one piece of software. NX offers a great variety of flexible shape creation, manipulation and analysis tools for industrial design and styling.
10. Package Design
NX is a great tool to tackle the package design challenges you face in the consumer packaged goods and food and beverage industries. By using sophisticated freeform shape modeling, surface continuity and analysis, and simulation and visualization tools, you can use NX to design package concepts quickly and efficiently.
11. Mechatronics Concept Designer
Mechatronics is the combination of Mechanical engineering, Electronic engineering, Computer engineering, Software engineering, Control engineering, and Systems Design engineering in order to design and manufacture useful products. NX Mechatronics Concept Designer is a new and improved way to design faster, more efficiently, and with higher quality while being applicable to engineers of all engineering disciplines.
12. Electromechanical Simulation
Speed up development and reduce costs with electromechanical simulation in NX. Face the difficulties of developing electromechanical products through a fully comprehensive suite of mechanical, electrical, controls, and electronics elements integrated into the electromechanical simulation of NX.
13. Quality Inspection
A great tool inside NX is the quality inspection programming. NX CMM inspection runs the entire inspection process while quickly generating collision-free programs.
14. Synchronous Technology
NX Synchronous Modeling technology unites parametric and history-free modeling techniques. It can be used regardless of the origin or associativity of the model.
15. Assembly Path Simulation
NX Assembly Path Planning software automates the definition of collision free extraction paths for components in the context of accessibility, maintainability and assembly/disassembly studies. The software also enables creation of motion envelopes for clearance purposes and definition of keep out zones.
16. Mechanical / Electrical Routing
NX digital product development solutions include an integrated suite of tools that facilitate the entire design process for routed systems, including wire harnesses, cables, piping, tubing, conduit and raceways. These process-specific tools reduce detailed design time, improve product quality and transfer product information seamlessly between the logical design, physical design, analysis, manufacturing and service sectors.
