SUBJECT: Backward compatibility from NX 11.0.1 to NX 11.0.0

Affected Software: NX 11.0.0, NX 11.0.1

PROBLEM:

NX 11.0.1 contains numerous enhancements that are above and beyond the scope of a typical maintenance release. These enhancements are beneficial to customers in general.

Every effort was made to ensure that parts with these enhancements from NX 11.0.1 could be opened in NX 11.0.0. There are however a small number of exceptions due to the nature of the enhancements that preclude some NX 11.0.1 parts from being opened in NX 11.0.0. These are listed below and will generate a message describing why the part could not be loaded in NX 11.0.0.
