The CAD/CAM/CAE-system NX was originally produced by the company Unigraphics Solutions. Today, NX belongs to Siemens and is traded as Siemens PLM software. NX is an integrated software suite to enable quick and efficient product development and assembly.
Next to the CAD-, CAM-, and CAE-function, NX offers a variety of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), in order to automate work processes.
The Solid Edge software is concerned with a complete, hybrid 2D-/3D-CAD-System. With help from Synchronous Technology, it is possible to speed up the design, make changes quicker and better use imported data: thus optimizing the development process.
