NX CAD Product Template Studio (PTS)
NX Product Template Studio to Accelerate and Standardize Design Processes
Re-use of design information and process knowledge helps you reduce costs, increase innovation and boost efficiency in product design. NX supports your re-use strategies with template-based design. You can readily use parametric product models as templates for new designs, incorporating your product and process knowledge within the template to dramatically reduce the time and effort required to develop product variants.
Create CAD Templates without Programming
NX Product Template Studio is a tool for creating product templates that can be used throughout your development team. Working from existing parametric models, Product Template Studio helps you package design assets for re-use. With simple drag-and-drop tools, you can quickly and easily create custom interfaces that control design inputs and engineering operations for templates.
Automate Processes with Product Templates
With NX product templates, you can automate much more than design modeling. To automate and standardize engineering processes, you can incorporate product and manufacturing information, drawings, motion analysis, structural simulation, and validation checking into the templates.
Capturing re-usable knowledge during the design process
Capturing knowledge and getting it into a digital product development environment is crucial for realizing the large rewards associated with knowledge re-use. With NX, your user communities can rapidly capture and create re-usable design elements while they participate in everyday design processes.
Other types of knowledge can also be added to the Reuse Library by using dedicated dialog’s that capture knowledge without the need for coding.
NX Product Template Studio is one such code less tool. Using simple drag-and-drop methods, an NX designer can greatly simplify interaction with useful parametric models by quickly and easily wrapping a descriptive user interface around the design. This packaged template can then be easily re-used by subsequent designers. With the ability to include product manufacturing information, drawings, kinematics or dynamics analyses, finite element analyses and more as part of a product template package, Product Template Studio has proven to be a powerful new way to capture robust, self-validating modular packages of product design in an easily re-usable form.
