Materials information in Siemens NX

Direct access to validated materials property data within NX

Deploy accurate, up-to-date, approved materials information to engineers and designers throughout the company, for use within their NX workflows

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for NX

GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway for NX enables users of the NX software from Siemens PLM to directly access and use validated materials property data from a GRANTA MI database, while working in their familiar CAD/CAE environment.

MI:Materials Gateway provides tools to access and browse the corporate materials database (and Granta-supplied reference data on materials properties), to choose applicable materials, and to assign those materials to parts within the NX model.

Designers can ensure that parts have the correct density for mass property calculations, and can generate reports summarising their  materials assignments. Analysts can select and assign fully-traceable CAE materials models for use in simulation. All of these tasks can be performed quickly, interactively, and with no risk of error due to data transfer.
