    Thread tool is woefully out of date. Only being able to hold either metric or imperial units in a part at once is crazy. Every other package can do it. Having all the tools in different areas for little to no logic. It doesn't follow conventional rules and standards that other cad packages have adopted. Error messages aren't always errors forcing you to read all the detail all the time. Simple quality of life and quick changes can be horrendous when one tool doesn't work in that particular way despite every intention of it appearing that way. It's stuck in the 1980s, unless you work in aerospace or on vehicles stay well away. There are better cheaper options out there. Review collected by and hosted on

    The compatibility to other softwares are quite poor if they are not compatible with the Parasolid core. It heavily relies on old formats such as STEP and IGES. JT format is OK but exporting and importing is time consuming not without problems. The choice of formats to import from other "Automative" softwares such as Creo or Catia is rather poor. If you work in other business NX is not very good in compatibility. Review collected by and hosted on

    User friendliness seems very low. Part of it is that it is VERY different than Solidworks, Creo, and CATIA as far as modeling strategies go. A number of our competitors use it, and we get translations from them and they are generally very hard to work with in any of the the three software I mentioned above. If you need to convert between programs bringing para solids (.x_t files) into Solidworks from NX works best for me. Not a fan of the layer/hide-show method used, very similar to MasterCam though. Also there seems to be a limited amount of searchable information on the internet to help solve issues or figure out ways to tackle modeling. Review collected by and hosted on

    Overall: My overall experience with Siemens NX was productive and efficient, because this system, thanks to the multiple functions it offers, allowed me to do my work much more effectively and efficiently. Well, the function that served me the most was to generate the steps for the mass production of whatever I needed.

    Overall: Siemens NX is a powerful and versatile CAD/CAM software that offers a wide range of capabilities for product design and manufacturing. It features advanced 3D modeling, simulation and analysis functions, design-to-manufacturing integration, and an extensive library of materials and components.
