Mechanical - Electrical Design
Integrate electrical and mechanical designs and processes
Integrating mechanical, electronic and electrical components in electromechanical products is crucial to aerospace, automotive, electronics, machinery and medical device manufacturers. These manufacturers are challenged to transform their development processes to concurrent design and systems engineering methods that support collaboration among diverse disciplines

Real-time information sharing between electrical, mechanical and control systems designers is essential to delivering innovative, high-quality products on-time and under-budget. NX provides a unified solution for every phase of electromechanical design.
NX for Design

Automation Design

Mechanical - Electrical Design is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.
Data Exchange Accelerates Design, Reduces Errors

With PCB Exchange, NX coordinates and synchronizes your mechanical and electrical design teams and systems. You can readily share engineering data and easily track and manage changes to enhance collaboration. By reducing the time spent on tracking, converting, and re-entering information, you can accelerate design and reduce errors.

Two-way transfer of PCB data

Once the printed circuit board is designed in the ECAD system, you can transfer schematic and component data back to NX, and automatically create an accurate 3D assembly model of the board for use in the mechanical design. As the design progresses, you can use PCB Exchange to automatically compare board versions and update the board model. Detailed reporting of the design changes streamlines communication across disciplines.
Integration with Electrical Design Tools

NX PCB Exchange interfaces with major PCB design systems via standard interchange formats and vendor-specific data exchange formats. You can use NX Flexible Printed Circuit Design to create rigid or flexible PCBs in the context of an assembly model, then easily transfer board outlines, keep-in and keep-out regions and other data to the PCB design system for board layout.
