Siemens NX CAD is being daily used for 3D Design & Drafting. It has simple User Interface & Multiple commands. It is user friendly. Very important 3D Modeling commands. It Supports 3D Modeling, Mold wizard, Sheet Metal, 2D Drafting, Assembly, Progressive Die tools, etc. It supports multiple export formats like, .x_t, iges, step, sldprt , etc.
  • It has simple commands for 3D Modeling
  • Its User interface is very simple
  • It is user friendly & supports team PLM
  • They Can add simulation for Plastics & FEA
  • They need to improve their updates & cost
  • They can improve their new versions & remove bugs
Siemens NX CAD support team is very responsive & active. They are having updates very frequently & good layout for commands & User interface. They have commands simple to use & operate on low configuration systems. Siemens NX CAD supports 3D modeling , 2D drafting. It has options for CAD library which is very useful for similar projects & easy reference.

We use Siemens NX CAD to fully develop and Design components and assemblies into the final product to visualize the product as well as to create manufacturing drawings. Siemens NX CAD works well as a whole product system to work within all development teams, as well as having traceable on who has parts open, and the history of changes
  • 3d modelling
  • Motion analysis
  • Detailed drawings
  • Accountability of users history with parts
  • The speed at which it processes large parts
  • Ease of dimensioning complex geometry in drawings
  • Improving the user interface to make it more in line with most other software currently on the market and making it feel like its in 2022
  • Being able to show more than one measurement on the screen at the same time.
It's great for complex and large projects eg the automotive or aerospace industry as it. It has a good way of managing and controlling all the large volumes of models. But it's not suited for doing small projects quickly on the other hand. Like one-off bespoke designs.

Siemens NX CAD is mainly used by us o draw and archive 3d and 2d technical drawings of tooling and product assemblies. For example testing tools for plastic products, we engineer and produce. Tooling can also be composed of many sub-components. We also need to manage 3d assemblies to create exploded drawings and assembly instructions.
  • Modeling
  • The thing that I need to keep all the parts, usually in common with other assemblies, in the same folder is very uncomfortable if I need to revise a single component.
  • I would prefer to have 1 file for each part and just select it when needed. (with Solidedge this is possible).
Even after years of using it I still find it more user-friendly and easy to customize and use programs such as Solidedge or Solidworks. The things that I cannot order constraints in an assembly are uncomfortable. The thing is that if I delete a function while modeling a component the error message never goes away, even if I correct and refresh is uncomfortable.

Norfolk Southern's equipment design and equipment manufacturing facility is made up of a 6 person engineering team that is responsible for designing and developing new and preexisting machines for Norfolk Southern. For a smaller design team, we really are only involved with the design and product development side of Siemens PLM software through the use of NX CAD, NX Nastran, and NX Cam. Having just recently purchased NX Cam, we have greatly increased the amount of products being produced while significantly increasing our products overall quality.
  • Seamless interaction across multiple departments.
  • The software allows you to create a very high level of control and organization within your engineering staff. This reduces the companies mistakes and maximizes productivity.
  • The software makes it very easy to track your product through every phase of the production cycle.
  • Speaking from experience with NX, each revision seems to be focused more on the layout of icons as compared to the functionality of the features.
  • Features within NX that have been used for years are no longer being used as a result of new revisions. Doesn't make a lot of sense to the end user. It would be nice to know what the reason is on a much larger scale (ie large customer recommendation?)

How many departments will be using the product?

How does each department or area within any given company work with or rely on each other? You have to know or be able to create a streamlined approach to doing work for the PLM software to really work. The software adds a lot of necessary structure.
