NX7 Part 2 – What’s new

By JerrySarfati

Yesterday, 20 May 2010, we announced NX7.  In this second blog post, I will review some of the new features in NX7.


For existing users, we have made NX7.5 even more compelling. Following is a short list of our goals for this release:

  • Faster Design with Synchronous Technology including Streamlined freeform modeling (I’ll discuss this in more detail in my next blog post)

  • More intuitive reporting for improved decision-making in HD3D

  • Better leveraging of PLM information

  • Faster validation and issue resolution

  • Faster, easier geometric modeling

  • Improved use of imported models

  • Accelerated analysis processes

  • Multiple CAE solutions in one system

  • Better confidence in CAE predictions

  • Reduce CMM inspection programming time

  • Generate NC programs for blisks and impellers

  • Reduce tool path calculation
