NX, also known as Unigraphics is an advanced CAD, CAM, CAE application which is owned by Siemens PLM Software. It is commonly used for design, engineering analysis and manufacturing. NX is built on Parasolid and runs on Linux, Microsoft Windows, and MacOS.
On the CAD level UX provides parametric solid modeling, freeform surface modeling, reverse engineering, styling, engineering drawing, PMI, reporting and analysis, knowledge-based engineering, sheet metal design, assembly modeling, routing for wiring and piping. In CAE key functions are stress analysis, kinematics processes, CFD and thermal analysis. As for the CAM level, the main function is numeric control programming.
Intergraph Smart 3D, the most advanced plant design software offered in two decades, is Intergraph’s next generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution for streamlining engineering design processes while preserving existing data and making it more usable/re-usable. A fundamental component of Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise, Smart 3D is a complementary, full-suite solution that provides all the capabilities needed to design a plant, and then keep it as built throughout its life cycle.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
