    The read-me file states that Learning Edition has an expiration date. After that date can I re-new the license or would I not be able to use the software anymore?

    Siemens NX Student Edition Free is an amazing Learning Version of Siemens NX. For teaching first time CAD users I prefer Siemens NX Student Edition Free interface over Academic Version, it is simpler and cleaner. And, for students, have anytime a customized version of Siemens NX that runs “light-speed” in home PCs and laptops its a warranty of engagement with their school projects.
    I would like next update includes PDF export and Printing, that are both available in Academic Version, not even it includes the “Student Edition” label out the borders of the template.
    I really wish Siemens confirms, soon, license will be renewable after the expiration date stated in read-me files.

    • faustino.garcia


      If it still works to you.
      1. Right click over a free area of the top menu (before de command finder box).
      2. If it is unselected or deselected, check “top border bar”. There is the menu (pulldown menu).

      Best regards. FG

    Siemens NX 1980 series was released on 2021.06.17, I was expecting NX 1980 Series Student Edition on finals of August. Any of you could already download NX 1980 Series Student Edition?

    And another question, any of you had been able to use sketch auto dimension in NX 1953 Series Student Edition?

    I was able to use it in NX 1926 Series Student Edition. But, to me, it is not available in NX 1953 Series Student Edition.
