What is BIM?
“NX for BIM is an advanced 3D Parametric design tool that enables designers to quickly create and document buildings”
Built on the core foundations of NX, the tool is a multi-disciplinary design tool, packaging up Algorithmic Modelling, freeform shape modelling, steel structures, MEP etc. We’ve built a collaborate design environment to eliminate mistakes that can happen when designing in isolated silos. The result? Design changes are propagated and multiple teams throughout the pipeline continue to work on the most up-to-date datasets.
A simplified BIM User Environment
A key area we’ve focused on for the latest release of NX revolves around the UI. We took an approach to customize and streamline the UI in order to ensure your creation and editing of building structures remain efficient, whilst enabling new users to get up to speed very quickly. All components and features are visible and editable in a single, dedicated navigator and you can quickly switch between levels to edit your BIM objects. Gone are the days of taking additional clicks to get to the BIM features; these new features will ensure you don’t waste time navigating the menus, and instead focus your time on refining and optimizing your structure.
Grid and Elevation Lines
Let’s focus on another exciting feature within the latest release of NX. With an intuitive sketching environment, we’ve built on the ability to create and edit Grid and Elevation Lines to your preference.
It doesn’t matter the industry you work in; all lines can be customized to adhere to various industries and customer standard display types.
We wanted to ensure you maintained complete control and flexibility when building your structures. To achieve this, you can easily reference Grid and Elevation Lines when positioning your structural elements, such as walls, columns, floors and ceilings. Additionally, all Grid and Elevation lines such as width, color and line length to name a few can be modified to specification. The aim is to remove all restrictions on your ability to create the structures to your specification.
