NX 12 for Manufacturing Overview

Watch our new NX 12 for manufacturing overview video!

NX 12 for Manufacturing introduces the next generation of software tools for CNC machining, additive manufacturing, and robotics to enable the digitalization of part manufacturing within a single, integrated, end-to-end system. The advanced capabilities for mold and die machining, production machining and complex parts machining allow you to reduce machining cycles by up to 60 percent and drastically simplify 5-axis programming of complex features. With the additive manufacturing capabilities in NX 12, engineers can quickly set up build trays, automatically nest parts, design support structures, and create machine-specific output to drive industrial printers, all within the NX environment. Using the new integrated capabilities of Siemens PLM Software’s solutions, tooling manufacturers can now gain a unique advantage by automatically and accurately determining tooling production costs.
