Siemens PLM Software has released an update to NX 12.0.0, its an integrated product design, engineering and manufacturing solution that helps you deliver better products faster and more efficiently. NX 11.0.2 is a major release with significant new functionality in all areas of the product, and we believe that the new and enhanced functions will help you become more productive.
About Siemens PLM NX 12.0.0. Building on its legacy of best-in-class customer deployment readiness and data preservation, the latest version delivers the next generation of design, simulation and manufacturing solutions that enable companies to realize the value of the digital twin in the end-to-end process. This latest release unites electrical, mechanical and control systems through close integration with Mentor Graphics Capital and Xpedition portfolios for electrical systems, harness and PCB design. Combined they provide the only true multidisciplinary platform available in the market today. At the highest level, NX underpins tools used for systems driven product development based on the RFLP (Requirements, Functional, Logical and Physical) methodology, which now provides a significant connection between the logical and physical abstractions in both electrical and mechanical domains. Building on Convergent Modeling technology that allows designers to seamlessly work and model with mesh geometry in combination with precise geometry, the new version combines tools for design optimization, advanced geometry creation, freeform shapes and parametric design to make generative design a reality. Electronics are fast becoming essential to all products, regardless of industry, making it more important than ever that electrical and mechanical designers collaborate throughout the product development process. Employing technology from recently acquired Mentor Graphics, the latest version of NX provides a direct connection between the design of electrical and mechanical systems. Linking the electrical tools and the 3D model, enables co-design including cross-probing, allowing designers of wiring diagrams and harnesses to work much more closely together, preventing costly and time-consuming rework due to electromechanical issues. Multidisciplinary work is not limited to electrical design. Industries involving large amounts of piping, such as shipbuilding, will benefit from close integration between instrumentation diagrams and 2D schematic layouts. New tools in NX allow engineers to lay out piping and instrumentation diagrams in two dimensions while maintaining the design tied to the 3D space model. This synchronization can help eliminate errors and save time as teams work more closely than ever before. With increasing pressure to deliver products to market more quickly, generative design is now a necessity in product development. Integrating a wide variety of tools gives designers more flexibility and choice when dealing with complex geometries. Using these technologies in combination also allows companies to go beyond traditional solutions that focus solely on optimizing shape in order to achieve truly multidisciplinary design. In the constant drive to reduce component weight and improve resource usage, companies are looking to incorporate lattice structures into design in order to meet these goals without compromising on strength and structural integrity. The latest version of NX delivers new approaches to design for additive manufacturing, including the ability to add lattice. Convergent Modeling makes it possible to work directly with faceted geometry such as these lattice structures, saving companies from the lengthy data conversion process normally required. This enables companies to deliver lighter, stronger products to market in much less time. With this latest release, NX software upholds its decades-long legacy as the best-in-class solution for preserving customer data. It is possible, without any data translation, to open existing customer data from any previous release of NX and work with it directly in the latest version today. About Siemens PLM Software.
