Ease the preparation of your print job regardless of the hardware and material being used. Integrated support for printer selection, manual part placement, 3D nesting, and support structure creation means there is no need to translate data or use external tools to prepare your parts for printing.
Prepare for a quality print by selecting the printer and defining the appropriate characteristics and settings. The integrated build processors in NX include templates for supported printer types giving you the exact build volume and associated printer settings to control the print process.
Easily establish the position of parts, test coupons, and even lugs and locators for automated part removal on the print bed using our integrated print setup tools.
Employ our integrated 3D nesting capability (Powered by Materialise) to utilize the entire space provided by your printer build volume. For printers that can print more than one layer of parts, this optimization of space can unlock the true capacity of your printer, leading to greater print volumes and less of the downtime that is necessary between builds. Options for part orientation and spacing ensure that the final printed parts achieve the quality required.
Manage the integrity of your printed part using our integrated support structure generation (Powered by Materialise). Whether you are using support structures to maintain model integrity or to manage heat buildup, NX can assist you in their design and application to the printed part. Creating support structures within our integrated system means that if your design changes, the support structures can be updated without the data translations necessary when using external systems.
