NX for Design is an integrated product design solution that streamlines and accelerates the product development process for engineers who need to deliver innovative products in a collaborative environment. Unlike CAD-only solutions and closed enterprise solutions, NX for Design offers the highest level of integration between development disciplines in an open, collaborative environment.

Design Benefits:

  • Reduce Development Time by More than 30 Percent. With breakthrough technologies, efficient interaction and streamlined workflows, NX design tools help you accomplish design tasks much more quickly than with other CAD systems.
  • Increase the Number of New Products Introduced Each Year. By improving design productivity and throughput, NX can help your engineering teams pursue more opportunities and develop more products without more resources.
  • Reduce Delivery Cycle Time by 35 percent. With integrated design, simulation, tooling and manufacturing, NX can help you transform and streamline development processes, using the same knowledge and data from the first concept to the shop floor.
