Drive manufacturing processes using PMI

Capture and associate a part's manufacturing requirements directly to the 3D model using product and manufacturing information (PMI). This information, including geometric dimensioning and tolerancing, 3D annotation, surface finish and material specifications, becomes available across the entire operation.

Leverage fully-integrated CAD tools

Use the comprehensive CAD functions of NX to model your part from a drawing, modify an existing model or create a job setup assembly.

Standardize manufacturing with a master model

Facilitate concurrent manufacturing by linking all functions to the single model definition of the part—from part model design and optimization—using master model technology. The toolpaths, job setup assembly and shop documentation update instantaneously when design changes occur.

Complete tooling and fixture design capabilities in NX

Automate the design of molds, progressive dies, stamping dies and fixtures using process-based design applications.
