Low User Friendliness

What do you like best?

Positives: Compact file structure, an entire assembly and drawing can be contained within the same file, making it easier to control transfers and storage of designs without file management issues. Not sure what the size limitations on it are.

What do you dislike?

User friendliness seems very low. Part of it is that it is VERY different than Solidworks, Creo, and CATIA as far as modeling strategies go. A number of our competitors use it, and we get translations from them and they are generally very hard to work with in any of the the three software I mentioned above. If you need to convert between programs bringing para solids (.x_t files) into Solidworks from NX works best for me. Not a fan of the layer/hide-show method used, very similar to MasterCam though. Also there seems to be a limited amount of searchable information on the internet to help solve issues or figure out ways to tackle modeling.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Implement as many training courses as possible, there isn't much information out there for quick searches compared to other software so those classes will be very important.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our biggest advantage from the program is handling 3rd party data and customer data from some key customers. The interface puts people off from going the extra mile to learn the software well enough to see other benefits above our core 3 software.

NX 10

What do you like best?

This is one of the easiest software's that I have picked up using. We use it primarily for designing molds.

What do you dislike?

The egregious price of the software is one of its biggest downfalls. In fact our company is actually researching switching software just for the cost reason. Other than that it works well. We do not work using the assembly structure and it is nice that NX allows for the freedom to work without restraints as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be wary of the price, but make sure to factor in what you will be using it for into your considerations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main business problem we are solving with using this software is the ability to design molds for our customers. The major benefit to us for using NX above another software is the freedom it allows.

What Product and Machine Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Soft That Leads to the Future

What do you like best?

Layout of and customizability of the tool ribbons, ability to create, and use, journals for repetitive tasks. Being able to load multiple versions of a given part to allow for quick caparison of those parts with surface meshing

What do you dislike?

processing times to perform tasks are extensive at times

Recommendations to others considering the product

use multiple monitors so that you can view the assembly structure on one screen while doing your main work on the other. Something to consider is the use of journals for frequently completed tasks. NX allows you to record task you perform and assign those tasks to a radial button letting you select the one button to run a string of actions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Designing the future of transportation with electric and autonomous vehicles. ability to do initial analysis within the softawre

CAD Analysis

What do you like best?

I like that you can do a lot of different simulations and analyses

What do you dislike?

It's not very user friendly. The mating features are extremely touchy and sometimes you have to align the models to get them to accept the mating you want.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's not very user friendly. It might be beneficial to take a class first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am doing remediation and looking how components mate together. It can show me simulations, interference, and calculate clearance.

Enjoyable Product

What do you like best?

I've used Catia for my college career and I found that program very fun to work with. NX is no different, it's very similar in the model aspect.

What do you dislike?

This product is a little less advanced in its functioning compared to Catia. The model tree isn't as fluid and some of the features that Catia already had is now being implemented in NX 11.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create models and use NX to assist in aircraft design.
