The latest version of Siemens PLM Software’s NX (NX 10) program includes new capabilities designed to deliver increased product development flexibility and higher productivity. Enhancements to NX Realize Shape, a fully integrated subdivision modelling environment, give designers greater control over geometries and enable them to produce products with highly stylized shapes or complex surfaces. It speeds product development by eliminating the need to use separate tools for freeform design and engineering development. Although 3D modeling may be preferred for product design, a new 2D concept development tool enables initial layouts to be created in 2D more easily and quickly, the company says. Designs then can be migrated to 3D to complete the model.

Additional enhancements to NX 10 include an optional touch-enabled interface that provides expanded access to the software’s full design capabilities, and the company’s Active Workspace environment, which provides tighter integration to product lifecycle management (PLM) software, reducing the time need to find product information. NX 10 also offers a number of additional CAD/CAM/CAE enhancements, including new dynamically adjusted roughing strategies in NX CAM that automatically adapt to part geometry to enable better mold and die machining.
