You are here:



NX, formerly known as NX Unigraphics or usually just U-G, is an advanced high-end CAD/CAM/CAE software package originally developed Unigraphics. Unigraphics NX is leading CAD/CAM/CAE system based on the best technologies for creating products pf any complexity. The main objective of the system ultimately is to reduce the cost of creating products, improve its quality and reducing time to market. This enables to quickly return the investment spent on the purchase and implementation of Unigraphics. Unigraphics NX gives you the power, flexibility and groundbreaking technology to dramatically boost your design productivity.

1. Assemblies
Multiple automotive suppliers and industrial design firms have reported a reduction in design time by 50%, and some up to 65%. NX has led to a reduction in the number of design recycles, as well as better analysis.Assembly design is one key factor in reducing design time. With so many different parts working together, NX gives you the flexibility to work top-down or bottom-up, and access any part of the hierarchy.And, with a “design in context” approach, you can quickly test ideas and new designs without changing multiple parts—those parts update for you.
2. Modeling
Powerful, innovative modeling tools are a must for creating the multiple surfaces of a car body.NX supports modeling of both complex surfaces and solid models, and has more advanced freeform modeling capabilities.For one company specializing in advanced composites-based vehicles, modeling in NX means faster analysis and faster design iterations and alternatives. That improvement in modeling meant reducing component weight by more than 40%.
3. Shape Design
Think about the different shapes, curves and cuts necessary in making a car today. How are side mirrors formed? Spoilers? Or the unique look of some hoods and doors?NX Realize Shape software is dynamic and intuitive: you can create new shapes based on simple designs just by extruding, sweeping, lofting and revolving its features. You also have freeform shape design, similar to the freeform modeling capabilities. You can use simple tools to create quick concepts for initial design intent, then edit from there. This includes creating curves on surfaces and direct surface modeling.
4. Rendering
Render designs and design changes before manufacturing them. You can use specific real-world materials that features will be made from.With unique rendering capabilities, you can skip costly prototyping steps, shortening design cycles. Using NX for design and Teamcenter for data management, one major automobile manufacture improved their development cycle from 20 months to 10.5 months, and found that there were 80% fewer issues after vehicles were released.High-quality rendering tools allow you to communicate your designs clearly and create images that can be used throughout design and manufacturing processes. This ensures that all team members are efficient and accurate in their communication.
5. Sheet Metal Design
Create sheet metal component models using specific, feature-based tools for tabs, flanges and other necessary features. Sheet metal tools can be used to generate accurate flat pattern data for downstream applications from solids, sheets and wireframe geometry.NX offers high-performance modeling, drafting and assembly design- powered by Synchronous Technology -that can’t be beat. The product design tools, as well as potential data management capabilities, make this a complete solution, from design to production.
