In this video our NX Guru Elizabeth Davis explains how to use the new NX Open Reporter tool available for the most recent version of NX 1847, AKA NX Continuous Release.

With each new NX release, there are almost always some changes to the NX Open API. So if you are currently developing or using NX Open, it is important to know how these changes may effect your code and if there is any rework necessary.

When the recorder tool is run it will evaluate your automation files and return a report. The report is a CSV file with the information needed to identify the specific line of code effected, what's changed in the API, and why. The tool can be run before updating NX so the potential issues can be addressed ahead of time.

If you are currently developing or using NX Open, it is important to know how these changes may affect your code and if there is any rework necessary. The tool is available for download from the Siemens PLM download server through the global technical access center (GTAC).

Welcome to the next video in a series on what's new in the NX continuous release program. NX is the most productive modeling environment of any system out there.

In this video we’re going to cover what's new in PMI, such as a new PMI compare tool. This is a great visual tool to compare changes to your parts overtime. There is a fully integrated interactive comparison in the HD 3D tool set. With this you can reduce manufacturing errors from design changes and dramatically reduce the amount of time it takes to check differences in PMI. In a managed mode you can review two revisions, and in native mode, you can review two parts that are from the same part.

As well we’ll show that PMI preferences have been updated. Now it’s more consistent with some of the other preferences that we see in NX. It’s been reorganized with a dynamic search capability so it makes it easier to find things. As well we go over Renew PMI, which will update PMI to the latest version of the NX code.

NX is no longer identified by a release number and will only be referred to as NX. There will be no NX13, so catch up on all the details in this handy video explaining NX Continuous Release.

Siemens PLM customers in the Continuous Release main channel will see functional improvements every six months with monthly updates to fix issues. This approach will deliver innovation faster. The updates themselves are smaller. You no longer have a large jump between major releases, or worse, doubling or tripling up on the upgrade by skipping one or two major versions to get your company “current."
