Proven, flexible NX solutions help speed up innovation in medical device development
Increasingly consumer-centric and personalized healthcare therapies demand innovative design and manufacturing of medical instruments and equipment. Our solutions offer faster and easier updates and refinements while on the path to regulatory approval or in production. Innovate with speed and confidence knowing that your design, development, and manufacturing environments will produce cutting-edge medical devices.
NX makes working with scanned data much faster and easier because it can be used and modified for various downstream processes - such as 3D printing and virtual clinical trials - without extensive rework. This means that a client can scan an anatomical structure and build a model of a medical device based on it in much less time than before. NX is an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE solution that can perform every task needed from scanned data to finished product.
NX for Design
Workflow Based Solutions
Medical Image Processing is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
Convergent Modeling is a brand new modeling paradigm which greatly simplifies the ability to work with geometry consisting of a combination of facets, surfaces and solids, without the need for time-consuming data conversion. The first technology of its kind, it enables engineers to optimize part design for 3D printing, speed up the overall design process and make reverse engineering a far more common and efficient practice in product design
Once the scanned data is in NX, it can be used and modified for various downstream purposes, such as 3D printing and virtual clinical trials, where a device can be test-fit in the virtual environment before the design is finalized.
Medical Convergent Modeling
The medical industry is experiencing increasing personalization in the medical field, including patient-specific structures. This drives a need for CAD models that conform to anatomical structures. This requires existing structures to be scanned into 3D, after which the model is built around them.
NX with Convergent Modeling makes working with scanned data much faster and easier because it can be used and modified without extensive rework. This means that a client can scan an anatomical structure and build a model of a medical device based on it in much less time than before. By using a design tool that can easily modify scanned-in data, they can complete their designs more quickly and accurately.
