Save Days and Dollars with NX Animation Designer

How can you find collisions before they happen, optimize the timelines of moving parts, all while creating an eye-catchy prototype that wins business every time? Validate products faster and save up to 92% over physical prototypes with Siemens’ NX Animation Designer.

What is NX Animation Designer?

NX Animation Designer leverages design data to create true-to-life animations that include product movements such as cylinders firing, pieces rotating, explosions, and more. Not only is this animation a powerful marketing tool for your account team, but there are many useful benefits for your designers.

This motion analysis application can be used to study kinematic behavior, find collisions between moving parts, optimize assembly/disassembly sequencing with color-coded timelines, all while reducing the necessary efforts taken to create accurate digital mockups. Now, users can spend more time designing and less time defining motion studies even as designs continue to evolve.

Did we mention the best part? Designs can all be tested from the comfort of your home office with no physical prototype needed.
