The NX MACH™ software products are prepackaged solutions delivering high-performance computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities of NX™ software, the leading solution for mechanical design. They offer competitively priced solutions tailored to specific product development roles, practices and processes, in four performance tiers. Value-added upgrades are available to move customers from one tier to the next. Each package delivers complete capabilities for production work.
NX MACH 1, 2 and 3 solutions include engineering process management capabilities for improved design team collaboration. Optional extended engineering process management tools provide scalable collaboration and advanced management.
All of the NX MACH design solutions share a common denominator of high-performance CAD functions and the ability to use powerful high-definition 3D (HD3D) Visual Reporting, enabling designers and engineers to quickly understand key elements of their, designs. Each level of the solutions builds upon the other, providing increasingly more sophisticated and advanced design capabilities.
NX MACH Designer This entry-level solution offers tools for creating and editing designs of typical mechanical components and assemblies, with solid modeling and drafting, basic freeform modeling and sheet metal design. It includes tools for design review, rapid prototyping, web publishing, validation checking, re-use library and custom program execution. It also offers design-oriented stress and vibration analysis wizards.
NX Layout NX Layout is a fully integrated 2D concept design solution for NX. Built on proven NX technology, the software employs re-usable 2D components to enhance 2D concept design. Further, it can automatically create assembly structures based on 2D layouts to accelerate the detailed design phase. NX Layout provides a number of dedicated tools to support 2D design and layout, as well as 2D-to-3D capabilities.
NX MACH 1 DesignThis solution delivers all the capabilities of NX MACH Designer, plus a managed environment powered by Teamcenter® software, with data management and visualization capabilities for product and process management.
NX MACH 2 Product Design The MACH 2 Product Design package provides enhanced product design capabilities, including flexible printed circuit board design, validation checking, user-defined features, rendering, 3D annotation for Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) and basic routing.
NX Cool Shape DesignNX Cool Shape Design is a modeling-only environment delivering NX tools for fast and easy development of complex shapes. NX Cool Shape Design includes the advanced freeform tools and NX Realize Shape™ subdivision modeling.
NX MACH 3 Product Design
The MACH 3 Product Design package provides a high-performance solution with NX design capabilities for advanced assembly design, advanced freeform modeling and surface analysis, design optimization and molded part validation.
NX MACH 3 Industrial Design MACH 3 Industrial Design delivers a broad range of NX design tools, and extends the freeform modeling capabilities with NX Realize Shape, bringing powerful subdivision modeling capabilities into the NX environment.
