Ltd. as the sole Singapore distributor of NX™ software, Siemens PLM Software’s flagship digital product development solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering analysis (CAD/CAM/CAE).

Under the terms of this agreement, CADEM will market, license, manage and support the distribution of NX in Singapore.

The latest version of NX – NX 7.0 – was announced on 7th October 2009, building on its strong leadership position in modeling flexibility and productivity. NX 7.0 introduces HD3D, an open and intuitive visual environment to help global product development teams unlock the value of PLM information and significantly enhance their ability to make efficient and effective product decisions.

This environment will be common across NX and Teamcenter® software, Siemens PLM Software’s industry-leading digital lifecycle management portfolio, and its open architecture will also allow for integration with a variety of third-party applications.

At the same time, the enhancements to synchronous technology further accelerate a variety of product development tasks and expand the unmatched ability of NX to effectively work with data from third party CAD applications.
