What is NX?

NX is a complete product design, engineering, and manufacturing solution that helps you deliver better products faster and more efficiently in a single environment.

NX Capabilities



NX for Design is an integrated product design solution that streamlines and accelerates the product development process for engineers who need to deliver innovative products in a collaborative environment. NX offers the highest level of integration between development disciplines in an open, collaborative environment.



NX design tools are superior in power, versatility and productivity. You can work faster and more efficiently in the full range of design tasks, from 2D layout through 3D modeling, assembly design, drafting and documentation. With breakthrough technologies, efficient interaction and streamlined workflows, NX design tools help you accomplish design tasks much more quickly than with other CAD systems.


Utilizing synchronous technology, NX allows you to directly use models created with other CAD systems. You can import and modify CAD geometry from any source with speed, ease and efficiency. By improving design productivity and throughput, NX can help your engineering team pursue more opportunities and develop more products. NX is the the solution for multi-CAD collaborative design.


NX delivers a unified environment and consistent processes that can accelerate your cycle times. The seamless integration of NX applications enable you to rapidly propagate information and process changes across all development disciplines, from concept design to manufacturing. NX leverages Teamcenter to establish a single source of product and process knowledge that coordinates all phases of development, standardizes your processes and accelerates decision making.


The depth and breadth of the NX CAD tool set is spectacular. From industrial design, package design and styling through complete mechanical design and simulation in addition to electromechanical design, tooling and fixture design, and machining and quality inspection, NX offers robust and powerful problem solving tools which address extremely complex product development problems.


Success in production depends on the quality and thoroughness of your manufacturing plan. To be truly effective, part manufacturing plans need to be complete, accurate and delivered to production when they are needed. NX supports you with a complete set of manufacturing solutions from CAM and tooling design software to machine tool controllers.


Advanced Programming Capabilities

Programming Automation

NX CAM provides a wide range of functionality, from simple NC programming to multi-axis machining for both prismatic and free form parts, enabling NC programmers to address many tasks using one system.  The flexibility of NX CAM means that the most demanding jobs can be completed easily.

Advanced feature-based machining (FMB) provides extra value in programming automation. Users can automatically create optimized machine programs directly from part design models. With feature-based machining programming time can be reduced by as much as 90 percent.

Post Processing

Ease of Use

NX CAM has tightly integrated post-processing system. Users can easily generate the required NC code for almost any type of machine tool and controller configuration. Multiple levels of NX program validation include G-code-driven simulation, which eliminates the need for separate simulation packages.

For maximum productivity, users can work on the system graphically. For example, selecting and moving the 3D model of the tool to adjust a tool path is as fast and intuitive way to drive the system. The dialog boxes use graphics with clear annotation to indicate what values are required for menu input.


NX CAE is a modern, multi-discipline CAE environment for advanced analysts, work groups, and designers who need to deliver high quality performance insights in a timely fashion to drive product decisions. NX CAE integrates best-in-class analysis modeling with simulation solutions for structural (powered by NX Nastran), thermal, flow, motion, engineering optimization, multi-physics and simulation data management.


Advanced Analysis

Comprehensive Meshing Tools

NX CAE drastically reduces the time users spend preparing analysis models. The tight integration of a powerful geometry engine with robust analysis modeling commands is key, reducing modeling time by up to 70 percent compared to traditional modeling analysis tools.

NX CAE includes extensive modeling functions for automatic and manual mesh generation of 1D, 2D, and 3D elements and application of loads and boundary conditions. From 1D element and beam meshing, to 2D shell meshing and best-in-class haxahedral and tetrahedral 3D meshing, NX CAE associated modeling and meshing capabilities represent and extremely powerful tool.

Multi-Discipline Simulation

System-Level Simulation

NX CAE reduces cost and complexity by delivering depth and breadth of analysis capabilities through a single advanced simulation environment. Whether you’re conducting structural, thermal, flow, motion or a number of other types of analyses, you will always be within the same basic user interface, have access to the same base analysis and geometry modeling capabilities, and use the same file structure and management scheme.

 As products become ever more complex, performing simulation at just the component level is not enough. NX CAE has the tools needed to efficiently build and manage complex analysis models and assemblies, perform advanced simulation and co-simulation with control systems, solve large models quickly using the latest in high-performance computing methods and correlate analysis results with physical tests.
