Transforming the entire product development process with high-performance, integrated solutions for design, simulation and manufacturing.

Transform your product development process so you work smarter, not harder, finding new efficiencies to drive innova-tion and capitalize on market opportunities.

Make smarter decisions faster by pro-viding up-to-date product information and analytics to better address engineer-ing, design and manufacturing problems.

Supporting every aspect of product development, from concept design through engineering and manufacturing, NX™ gives you an integrated toolset that coordinates disciplines, preserves data integrity and design intent, and stream-lines the entire process.

With the broadest, most powerful and best integrated suite of applications, NX™ boosts productivity to help you make smarter decisions and deliver better products faster and more efficiently.

More than a toolset for computer-aided design, engineering and manufacturing (CAD/CAM/CAE), NX™ also enables collaboration between designers, engineers and the broader organization through integrated data management, process automation, decision support and other tools that help you refine your development processes.

Companies worldwide are realizing the distinct benefits of NX™ product develop-ment solutions. You can see immediate and long-term business results as our solutions enable you to:

Develop products “right the first time” by using virtual models and simulation to accurately evaluate product performance and manufacturability, and by continu-ously validating designs for compliance with industry, company and customer requirements.

Collaborate effectively with partners and suppliers with technologies for sharing, communicating and protecting product and manufacturing process information throughout the value chain.

Support development from concept through manufacturing, with a comprehensive, integrated toolset that streamlines the entire process with seamless data sharing between designers, product and manufacturing engineers to enable greater innovation.

Unmatched capabilities

No other solution offers a more comprehensive or powerful toolset for product development.
NX™ delivers:

  • Advanced solutions for conceptual design, 3D modeling and documentation
  • Multidiscipline simulation for structural, motion, thermal, flow, multiphysics and optimization applications
  • Complete part manufacturing solutions for tooling, machining and quality inspection

Fully integrated product development

NX™ brings together the tools for every development task in a unified solution. All technical domains work concurrently from the same product model data. The seamless integration enables you to rapidly propagate information and process changes across all development disciplines.

NX™ leverages Teamcenter® software,a collaborative product developmentmanagement (cPDM) solution fromSiemens PLM Software, to establisha single source of product and process knowledge that coordinates all phases of development, standardizes your processes and accelerates decision making.

Superior productivity

NX™ uses high-performance tools and leading-edge technology to address extremely complex problems. NX™ design tools easily tackle complex geometry and massive assemblies. The advanced simulation capabilities in NX™ handle the most demanding CAE challenges, significantly reducing physical prototyping. NX™ also enables you to improve your manufacturing by taking advantage of the most advanced tooling and machining technologies.

Open environment

The open architecture in NX™ enables you to protect your existing IT investments by readily incorporating solutions from other vendors in the digital product development process.

Proven results

NX™ has enabled customers to increase the number of new products; reduce development time by more than 30 percent; shorten design-analysis iterations by more than 70 percent and reduce computer numerical control (CNC) programming time by up to 90 percent.


  • Reduce design time by more than 30 percent
  • Increase the number of new product introductions
  • Improve team productivity through re-use
  • Work seamlessly with data from other CAD systems
  • Validate designs against product requirements
  • Make smarter design decisions with visual analytics

High performance product design

NX™ can help you deliver greater innovation at higher quality and lower cost with comprehensive 3D product design.

With unmatched power, versatility and flexibility, NX™ gives your design teamsthe freedom to use the most productive approach for the task at hand. Designers can select wireframe, surface, solid parametric or direct modeling techniques with seamless interchange.

With the synchronous technology in NX™, you can create and edit geometry with unparalleled speed and ease, even using models created on other CAD systems.

NX™ includes powerful assembly design tools with performance and capacity that enable you to work interactively in the full assembly context, even with the most complex models. Assembly navigation, multi-CAD mockup, interference analysis, path planning and other engineering tools accelerate assembly design and improve quality.

For specialized design tasks, NX™ offers process-specific modeling tools thatoutperform general purpose CAD for sheet metal design, weld design and electrical and mechanical routing.

NX™ also offers design templates that help you accelerate design and standardize engineering processes. You can quickly create templates from existing models and easily re-use them for new designs. Templates can also include simulation, drafting, validation and other engineering best practices.

Integrated industrial design

With advanced freeform modeling, shape analysis, rendering and visualization tools, NX™ delivers all the capabilities of dedicated industrial design systems, and also offers complete integration with NX™ design, simulation and manufacturing.

NX™ freeform modeling gives you the power and creative flexibility to explorealternative design concepts quickly. A versatile, integrated toolset combines 2D, 3D, curve, surface, solid, parametric and synchronous modeling for fast and easy shape creation and editing. You can easily sculpt from basic shapes, or use reverse engineering to create concept models from physical objects.

Shape analysis and validation tools in NX™ help ensure the integrity, quality and manufacturability of your designs.

Electromechanical design

NX™ integrates mechanical, electronic and electrical designs and processes in a unifiedsolution for electromechanical product design.

From printed circuit board design to mechanical packaging and electrical wiring and harness design, NX™ gives you tools that support collaboration among disciplines. Mechanical, electrical, and control systems designers can use a concurrent process to deliver high-quality products.

To optimize product performance, NX™ includes simulation solutions that address all major causes of electromechanical product failure.


  • Optimize form, fit and function
  • Create freeform shapes and iterate concepts faster
  • Preserve design intent from concept through production
  • Integrate mechanical and electrical disciplines and processes
  • Improve ECAD/MCAD information exchange
  • Accelerate development and achieve lower costs with concurrent development processes
