Design Jigs and Fixtures with Powerful CAD Tools
Because jig and fixture designs are fully associative to the part model, you can quickly and accurately update fixtures based on part model changes.
You can easily position and mate fixture components with the NX assembly capabilities, and then automatically create drawings and documentation for the fixture and its components. NX also allows you to simulate the kinematics of fixtures, such as opened and closed positions, and check for strength and distortion.

Design Fixtures Using Advanced CAD
NX offers powerful capabilities in geometric and large assembly modeling, making it ideal for all types of fixture design.
You can easily position and mate fixture components with the NX assembly capabilities, and then automatically create drawings and documentation for the fixture and its components.
Leverage Associativity to Incorporate Design Changes
Full associativity between the part model and the fixture can ensure fast, accurate updates. When the fixture design is dynamically associated with the part or product model, the fixture model can be updated automatically if the design changes.
Simulate and Optimize Fixture Designs
Easy-to-use kinematic software enables you to display and check mechanism motion. You can simulate the kinematics of fixtures, such as open and closed positions. NX also offers a wide range of tools for stress analysis to help you optimize structural performance.
NX for Manufacturing
Digitally transform part manufacturing using one integrated software system to program CNC machine tools, control robotic cells, drive 3D printers and monitor product quality.
