What you need to know about NX X 3D CAD software for industrial machinery

A cloud-based 3D CAD solution capable of accelerating time to market

NX X software from Siemens provides machine builders, component manufacturers, and OEMs with a fully managed software as a service (SaaS) cloud-based CAD solution.

Engineers can work and collaborate from anywhere, at any time, on any device.

A cloud-based system provides opportunities for distributed teams, removes overhead IT costs, and offers a single secure location for data.

Learn more about the capabilities and benefits of NX X software from Siemens in this short, informational fact sheet.

How cloud-based 3D CAD software is different from desktop installations

Cloud-based 3D CAD SaaS solutions operate the same as traditional desktop installations, but they provide greater opportunities for individual users as well as entire companies.

Increased security: Customer data never leaves the customer’s secure cloud environment, so there’s no need for sending files through email, using file-sharing sites, or removable drives.

Reduced IT overhead: With a cloud-based solution, the software provider runs the IT infrastructure, including software installation, updates, and data backup.

Flexibility: Users can access 3D CAD software via the cloud from anywhere on any device, so remote teams can work and collaborate regardless of their locations.

Easy installation and deployment: Users simply need a web browser and sign-in credentials to get started on design projects since the 3D CAD solution is managed by the software provider. Design work can begin almost immediately.

Building a digital twin with 3D CAD software

NX X from Siemens helps engineers build a digital twin of machines, components, and equipment.

The software combines mechanical, electrical, electronic, and automation engineering capabilities to create a comprehensive digital representation of the product.

This digital twin can then be used throughout the product lifecycle because NX X works in conjunction with Teamcenter X software, a cloud-based product lifecycle management (PLM) tool from Siemens.
