Join the thousands of companies using NX CAD to streamline their product development process
As products become more sophisticated, they become more reliant on integrated electronics. Providing a direct connection between designers of both electrical and mechanical systems is critical for smooth collaboration. Prevent development conflicts and ensure alignment between each network using the synchronous technology of NX for Design. An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view.
Make better-informed decisions with the design validation tools in NX CAD. By bringing product analytics and validation into your 3D design process, you can continuously monitor your designs for adherence to standards and requirements. Validation checking is essential to ensure product quality, comply with standards, fulfill requirements, eliminate errors and warranty costs, and optimize designs for performance and manufacturability.
Drafting & Documentation
Creating engineering drawings has never been smoother! Optimize your 2D and hybrid 2D/3D workflows with the highly productive drafting tools from NX. 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. Comprehensive annotation tools also document your drawings with manufacturing requirements.
Industrial Design & Styling
Achieve best-in-class computer-aided industrial design and give your company a competitive advantage. Design is the critical differentiatior in most of today’s industries - of course, the design must not only be visually appealing, but it must be functional, manufacturable, and affordable to build, support, and maintain. NX delivers flexible, robust industrial design and styling software that accelerates your product engineering.
Skip starting from scratch and expedite your creative process with NX's ability to manage, locate, capture, and reuse design information. By leveraging your design strategies, again and again, NX enables you to shorten design cycles, reduce development costs, and drive productivity. Meet faster time-to-market deadlines by utilizing NX's fully integrated Geolus Shape Search engine, which rapidly finds parts similar to a given an example based on its geometry.
Mechatronic Concept Design
Break down barriers with NX's multi-disciplinary approach to machine design and reduce integration issues. By achieving integrated access to electrical, mechanical, and automation disciplines, working together becomes effortless and enables better decision making through concept to product evaluation.
Model Based Definition
Eliminate effort spent on recreating annotated 2D CAD drawings and save time by leveraging legacy data with Model Based Definition. Compared to drawing-centric workflows, NX reduces the time spent on engineering documentation, drives downstream tools for validation and manufacturing, and reduces late changes and scrap. By empowering the model as the single source of truth, product teams can save valuable time by incorporating product and process information and ensure that intent is wholly captured and associated with the model.
NX enables engineers to lay out piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID) in two dimensions while maintaining the design tied to the 3D space model. P&ID Designer powers faster authoring, common libraries between diagramming and 3D, connectivity validation, diagramming to 3D, and equipment-level data management.
