The NX 8.5 release is less than a month away (end of October timeframe) – and it’s packed full with new enhancements. Here’s a short summary of some of the new noteworthy features and benefits you can look forward to in NX 8.5 for Manufacturing:
NX CAM: Machine higher quality parts faster.
Create NC programs 3 to 5 times faster for prismatic parts with Volume-based 2.5 D Milling. This operation uses a volume-based approach that tracks uncut material and instantly displays a preview of the planned machining operation. It can also help to minimize machining time.
You can also expect to reduce programming time, achieve a high quality surface finish, and cut faster with many of the additional NC programming enhancements in NX CAM 8.5. These include a new valley rest milling pattern for mold and die machining, enhanced controls for 5-axis machining, and additional roughing and finishing options for turbomachinery milling.
NX CMM Inspection Programming: Streamline your quality inspection process.
For quality inspection, NX 8.5 adds measurement results analysis to the CMM inspection programming application. Now you can see and evaluate your “as-built” measurements in NX right next to the “as-designed” models you use to create your CMM inspection programs.
NX CMM 8.5 also includes collision avoidance enhancements and scan preview with display of probe orientations.
Manufacturing Resource Library: Manage your cutting tools.
Manage your vendor catalogs and preferred tool assemblies (as well as your custom resources), and provide easy access to tooling data for NC programmers with the new Manufacturing Resource Library (MRL) and Manufacturing Resource Library Connect for NX.
The MRL stores and classifies its content in Teamcenter with a full range of search functions and graphical displays so you can easily find and access the tools you need, and pull accurate 3D models of the selected tools directly into your CAM programming session.

Have you started your plans to upgrade to NX 8.5?
NX 8.5 consists of more than 350 user driven projects, with more than 2000 functional enhancements. In this Product Manager video, Derek England explains some of the usability improvements to the sketcher.
In NX8.5, sketcher has been improved to allow more direct capturing of rules and overall design intent. This can help you reduce the time work in sketcher by up to 20% on complex profiles.
These enhancements help make NX easier to learn and discover for new and returning users.
Coming up next, more NX8.5 video’s.
Today we are announcing the latest release of our NX software, NX8.5.
