Siemens' HD3D environment in NX 7.0 CAD/CAM/CAE

Siemens' HD3D environment in NX 7.0 CAD/CAM/CAE

HD3D unites the data in Teamcenter with the 3-D models in NX to provide a simple and intuitive way to collect, collate and visually present PLM information in the CAD environment, enabling engineers to quickly analyze a wide variety of product development parameters and make better design decisions faster. The HD3D environment enables engineers to visually comprehend PLM data through interactive navigation and the ability to drill down as needed. Through color-coding, on-screen tagging and legends, the HD3D user can "see" important data such as parts that are behind schedule, supplier related data, or recent design changes, allowing for fast assessment and interpretation. HD3D allows design teams to instantly gather requested PLM data and visualize its impact directly within the context of the 3-D design, resulting in a level of insight that produces better decisions faster, enhancing innovation and reducing time to market. HD3D removes this time consuming process and delivers a highly visual interactive 3-D environment that displays any type of PLM data in the context of the CAD model. The data can be color coded and tagged to support informed visual analytics and rapid decision making with a higher level of confidence.
