Design Optimization for Additive Manufacturing with Siemens NX

Siemens NX invites you to explore a complete parametric Computer Aided Design (CAD) system that lets you work with non-uniform rational basis splines (NURBS), facets/meshes and even subdivision bodies, all in a single CAD package. With NX, you can easily design parts for 3D printing or hybrid manufacturing, whether simple or complex.

The unrivalled versatility of the design software gives you the freedom to create parts with exceptional geometric complexity while maintaining high precision. Whether you're designing simple components or sophisticated assemblies, this robust design solution coupled with the know-how of our teams enables us to provide you with all the tools you need to transform your ideas into real, ready-to-use parts.

Unrivalled design tools

  • Lattice structures
    The latices in NX offer lightness, strength and efficiency for the design of innovative, high-performance products.
  • Generative design
    Quickly iterate through thousands of possible designs with generative design to find the ideal solution.
  • Topology optimization
    With topology optimization, it's possible to achieve high-strength parts while reducing material use, weight and other characteristics.
  • Manufacturing capacity validation
    NX provides integrated solutions for validating designs against manufacturing requirements, ensuring that designs sent to manufacturing are printable.
