Siemens PLM Software, a division of Siemens AG, Europe’s largest engineering conglomerate, has announced that NX 6 (Unigraphics) is nearly ready for release on the Mac OS X operating system. 

Now Testing NX 6 for Mac

According to the PLM World e-Newsletter, Siemens is please to announce that customer tests are about to begin for NX 6 on Mac OS X. For the first time, Mac users will be able to take advantage of the world’s most advanced, full-featured PLM (product-life-cycle management) and MCAD product. The newsletter reports: “The Mac has long set the standard for design and innovation in the personal computer market, making it the perfect fit for NX and Teamcenter.” 

NX 6 for Mac will be fully demonstrated at PLM World conference in June of this year, and is scheduled to be released soon after that. 

Synchronous Technology

NX 6 for Mac will include all the same technology as NX 6 on Linux and Windows, including Siemens PLM Software’s leading-edge Synchronous Technology, which combines the best in “history-based” and “explicit modeling” (history-free) to allow even inexperienced users to modify 3D models directly without needing to know how the models were created. 

NX 6 also features a state-of-the-art user interface which is completely customizable. A knowledge-based design tool, NX 6 allows users to capture, manage, and share and apply company knowledge throughout the enterprise organization. 

NX 6 on Mac – Requirements

NX 6 for Mac will run only on current 64-bit Intel-based Mac systems running Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5.5 or later) and it supports all graphic subsets. It will include CAD, CAM, Assemblies and Drafting. Siemens PLM has many customers already signed up to test NX 6 for Mac OS X. Interested NX customers can contact Tom Spangler at [email protected]
