Unlock your full potential using innovative technologies, including robotics machining and hybrid additive manufacturing

New manufacturing software technologies in NX 11 for Manufacturing can help you improve your productivity and create new opportunities to transform your business into a digital machine shop.

NX CAM Robotics software lets you design, simulate, validate, optimize and offline program your industrial robots for machining-type tasks. This solution greatly increases the efficiency and quality of these high-precision, multiaxis robotic operations. Featuring the intuitive and widely-accepted NX™ software 3D environment, the software combines the simplicity of CNC programming with the power to accurately create, control and simulate complex robotic machining processes. Associative updates, a key benefit of the entire NX system, make it easy to accommodate change orders since the robotic programming can be refreshed when design changes occur.

New Technologies

Improve your productivity and create new opportunities to transform your manufacturing operation with the latest technology in NX 11. The new robotics machining and groundbreaking hybrid additive manufacturing capabilities let you produce new designs with better performance while delivering tremendous savings. With Line Designer you can quickly layout production lines using scanned point cloud data.


Powerful industry-specific capabilities in the CAM software for mold and die machining, production machining, and complex parts machining have been specially-designed to dramatically increase your overall manufacturing productivity. For example, you can now create tool paths 60% faster and produce parts with high-quality surface finish.

NX CMM Inspection Programming 11

NX CMM 11 is now able to drive Renishaw PH20 probes to take advantage of high-speed inspection methods using “head touches”. These new probes allow measurement points to be taken faster and with improved accuracy and repeatability by moving only the probe head instead of the entire CMM structure. The speed gains from this technology lead to measurement points to be taken three times faster.

NX Tooling Design 11

NX 11 Tooling Design provides increased productivity when designing molds and progressive dies. You can now interactively work with your bill of material (BOM) in NX. To speed up the tooling design process, you can drag/drop standard components from libraries into your NX tooling assembly. The latest simulation capabilities let you accurately visualize the motion of additional tooling components, so you can eliminate costly errors in production.
