NX Advanced Sheet Metal

Contains tools for designers who model complex parts (non straight brake parts). Complex parts might contains flanges along curved or complex faces which cannot be formed without material deformation (stretching, thinning, wrinkling etc.). NX Advanced Sheet Metal includes features for designing both straight brake and complex formed parts. These features include the Advanced Flange, Bridge Bend, Unform, Reform and Metaform. Advanced Flange is used to create flanges to match an existing complex surface with option to infer length from the reference surface. Unform provides the ability to unform these Advanced flanges so that user can add cutout across bends or other features. Reform provides the ability to reform the advanced flanges back to the formed state. Metaform provides the ability to Unform complex geometries including non sheet metal parts to an alternate shape. Metaform allows to go from Formed to Flat, Flat to Formed and Formed to Formed shapes. Bridge Bend feature allows user to quickly join two separate sheet metal bodies with a bridge using different bridge types.

Prerequisites:
A valid Mach Designer, Mach 1, Mach 2, Mach 3 or Mach 4 seat.
NOTE: Mach Advantage is not a valid pre-requisite


NX Weld Assistant

Weld Assistant (NX Weld) is designed to model material joining through fusion welds, mechanical connections, and solid state connections. This includes edge, groove, fillet, plug, spot, and seam welds; as well as beads, tape, dollops, and clinches. NX Weld also provides information on the welds and connections to help perform Finite Element analysis of the assembled product. Currently, NX Weld does not model brazing, bolting, or riveting. NX Weld automatically creates appropriate 2D drafting documentation and annotation based upon the 3D weld feature.
Available of CD for all supported platforms except Win64 NX2, which is available via download from the software FTP site.

Prerequisites:
A valid Mach Designer, Mach 1, Mach 2, Mach 3 or Mach 4 seat.
NOTE: Mach Advantage is not a valid pre-requisite


NX SNAP Author

SNAP stands for Simple NX Application Programming. It is an easy-to-use API that average people (not programmers) can use to automate simple repetitive tasks in NX.

Prerequisites:
A valid Mach Designer, Mach 1, Mach 2, Mach 3 or Mach 4 seat.
NOTE: Mach Advantage is not a valid pre-requisite
This product can be added to legacy customers who do not own Mach products. The prerequisite for a legacy customer is: UG10100 – NX Gateway.
Your customer may be interested in other NX Open products such as NX30104- NX Open for .NET Author or NX30106 – NX Open Toolkits Author or NX30102 – NX Open Dialog Designers.


HD3D Visual Reporting

HD3D Visual Reporting allows users to set up and edit visual reports based on important product and process criteria, and apply those reports on to any assembly in an NX session. Report criteria may be derived from information inside of NX or stored in Teamcenter.
Visual Reports can be generated “on the fly” giving immediate feedback to a designer on critical product and process information. Alternatively, the Visual Report can be authored, published and reused across the team allowing companies to build libraries of standard reports.
NX graphically shows the results of the report or query using a variety of techniques including highlighting, color coding and graphing/charting. Users dynamically interact in real-time with the applied visual report, for further analysis and drill-down.
Note: Customers will derive the most value from their investment in HD3D if they have full Teamcenter on the Unified Architecture with Teamcenter Authors. However, Visual Reporting is not dependent on Teamcenter.

Prerequisites:
A valid Mach Designer, Mach 1, Mach 2, Mach 3 or Mach 4 seat.
NOTE: Mach Advantage is not a valid pre-requisite


NX Human Modeling

NX Human Modeling allows designers to create feature models of human beings and is based on technology provided by E-factory Jack. These human models can then be used to explore and verify how people interact with product designs all within the NX environment.

Prerequisites:
A valid Mach Designer, Mach 1, Mach 2, Mach 3 or Mach 4 seat.
NOTE: Mach Advantage is not a valid pre-requisite


NX Design Simulation

The NX Design Simulation has been specifically designed to provide Designers and Engineers with a tool set that lets the user capture the structural behavior of their solid components in an easy to use, integrated product. This tool set supports a wide range of solutions provided by NX Nastran Desktop Basic for linear statics, vibration, bucking and thermal analysis. In addition it includes a Stress Wizard for a guided procedure to obtain stress from static loads and a Vibration Wizard for a guided procedure to obtain modal frequencies and shapes. This wizard functionality replaces the Strength Wizard capability that was retired in UG11085 and NX30500.
NX Design Simulation is built on a scaleable architecture. This gives users the versatility to easily share models between the NX Design Simulation and NX Advanced FEM and Simulation products.

Prerequisites:
Any Mach Design Package – this is a Mach Add-on product


NX Product Template Studio Author

The Product Template Studio Author license is a tool for adding a user-defined user interface to any parametric NX model. This user interface allows parametric models to be intuitively described and packaged for later reuse. Templates can be used to modularize a design, breaking a complex assembly into manageable modules that can then be recombined as needed to configure complex products. While the Product Template Studio uses Knowledge Fusion technology to create and store these user interfaces, users need no background in Knowledge Fusion, because the entire process is codeless.
