Available Software

NX Academic Edition is available to universities, technical colleges, trade schools and high schools. With the software, students can model products with 3D CAD, use CAE simulation tools to evaluate performance, and learn machine tool programming to gain insight into how products are manufactured – all using a single integrated software solution. The software is intended for classroom training and research projects only. Academic institutions are licensed to install NX on as many computers as needed and can loan licenses for students to use at home for completing assignments and continued learning. Please contact us for more information.

NX Learning Edition has most of the design features and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) capabilities of the retail version. Watermarks will be added to printed and plotted data to prevent the NX Learning Edition from being used for commercial work. In addition File -> Export capabilities are blocked. NX Learning Edition can output 3D STL files for rapid prototyping and 3D printing. Students can purchase the NX Learning Edition online through JourneyEd, Academic Superstore (US and Canada) and Studica (global).
