NX Mach 3 XaaS



Why NX CAD Mach 3?

Benefits: Boost product design efficiency, accelerate mechanical design processes, improve collaboration, reduce design process waste and improve design quality.

The NX Mach software products are prepackaged solutions that deliver the computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities of NX software, a leading solution for mechanical design.

What's included in NX Mach 3?

The NX Mach 3 bundle offers a value-add over the other bundles because it provides a higher level of electro-mechanical integration with the flexible printed circuit board (PCB) design capability.

NX Mach 3 for product development offers a prepackaged solution that includes all of the tools provided in NX Mach 2 and NX Mach 1 CAD. It also offers advanced product design capabilities, including:

  • Numerous data exchange tools for working with and sharing multi-CAD data with NX
  • Parametric, feature-based 2D and 3D wireframe construction, including dimensional, constraint-based sketching
  • Parametric, feature-based solid/surface modeling for constructing intelligent, robust and adaptable designs
  • Synchronous modeling for making fast changes to parametric or imported data
  • Freeform construction of lofted, swept or curve network-based shapes
  • Support for explicit, history-free modeling, as needed
  • User-definable, reusable feature templates
  • Top-down and bottom-up assembly modeling and design in the assembly context
  • 2D drawing-based and 3D model-based product and manufacturing information (PMI)
  • Design time validation checking
  • Executable automation programs developed from a variety of languages

The NX Mach 3 bundle also offers a variety of additional core and advanced design capabilities, including:

  • Advanced assembly modeling
  • Specific tools for the design of flexible PCBs
  • Baseline design of routed systems and straight break sheet metal
  • Goal-based design optimization
  • Advanced freeform surface construction, including high-quality, class-A surfacing
  • Complete reverse engineering tools to create shapes from point-and-scan stereolithography (STL) data
  • Comprehensive geometric and aesthetic shape analysis tools—including advanced molded part validation—use of HD3D Visual Reporting
  • Advanced design visualization using dynamic preview and real-time ray-traced rendering of materials, lighting and scenes

The bundle includes everything needed to integrate with Teamcenter software to provide optional extended engineering process management tools through scalable collaboration and advanced management.
