Product Lifecycle Management (Australasia) have announced the general availability of NX with native support for Mac OS X on 64-bit Intel-based Macs. The full computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) functionality of Siemens PLM NX now includes the Mac in its list of supported operating environments.
NX is used by leading companies around the globe to design and manufacture some of the world’s most innovative and sophisticated products. Its wide adoption throughout the global manufacturing industry is due in part to its ability to support a wide range of operating environments – including Windows, UNIX and Linux – in a heterogeneous or single operating system deployment.
The Mac OS X version of NX includes all of the software’s robust CAD and CAM functionality, as well as support for Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter platform through rich client capabilities embedded in NX and the thin client based on Apple’s Safari web browser. As a result, NX for Mac OS X can leverage all the capabilities of Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used PLM portfolio, including its ability to support a multi-platform CAD strategy.
“We are elated to include the Mac to the comprehensive list of operating environments supported by our NX CAD/CAM applications,” said Dennis Colusso, Director PLMA. “This addition increases the flexibility of NX, providing customers with the freedom to choose from one of the industry’s broadest range of supported operating systems.”
PLMA is the Master Distributor for the Siemens PLM suite of Product Lifecycle Management solutions.
