In this NX engineering tips article, let’s look at installing and using the Siemens Machinery Library. The Siemens Machinery Library can be freely downloaded by anyone with current maintenance and WebKey. The library contains seed or template parts for common fasteners such as hex bolts, cap screws, nuts, pins and other commonly used mechanical parts. These parts are all Part Family parent templates used to create a family of fasteners of varying lengths and sizes.

SUBJECT:  License Borrowing Enabled by Default
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Affected Software: NX - as well as NX Nastran, Tecnomatix, TC Visualization, FactoryCAD, Jack, I-Deas
Scope: Windows operating system
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Effective May 2, 2017, all license files generated for customers with products that support borrowing and utilize the common licensing vendor daemon (ugslmd) will have borrowing enabled by default. In the past, a special ‘borrowing’ product had to be added to the software configuration to enable the license borrowing capability. This is no longer a requirement and any license file generated will include the BORROW keyword on the INCREMENT lines for those products.

The following product lines are affected:

Affected Software: NX 8.0.X, NX 8.5.X, NX 9.0.X, NX 10.0.X, NX 11.0.X
Scope: All platforms

End of Maintenance dates for NX Release versions are listed below.

Of interest to our customers might be that NX 10 end of maintenance is November 9th of this year.

These dates represent when Siemens PLM Software will discontinue MP (Maintenance Pack) support and customer specific patches (HF).  No further updates or fixes will be issued for the corresponding NX version after these dates.
