Creating a highly-intuitive, parameter-based design with Algorithmic Modeling

Products continue to grow more organic in form and function as these new structures grow more complex, as does the design process. These designs are, at times, easier to describe computationally than they are to model manually using traditional CAD tools.

This may often require complex, time-consuming custom coding to create and modify those models, limiting creativity and flexibility.

Algorithmic Modeling with NX

NX Algorithmic Modeling is a breakthrough capability that fuels and maximizes the ability to use a flexible, highly-intuitive, parameter-based approach to design.

It is a powerful tool for designers who need to create a unique, personalized, eye-pleasing aesthetic. Take this modern, curved building. It would be time-consuming to design with traditional CAD.

Algorithmic Modeling simplifies this complex design process by enabling designers to describe their design’s “intent” with rules and logic to define its fundamental characteristics—such as the number of floors, twists, and taper. These parameters can be easily modified, allowing stunning initial designs to be created in a fraction of the time. Plus, it’s just as fast and easy to adapt models throughout the process—freeing designers to experiment until they achieve the perfect final result.

New designs that share common characteristics with the algorithmic templates you’ve created can be leveraged to accelerate future design processes. Algorithmic Modeling is seamlessly integrated into NX—enabling teams to simulate and build designs with familiar, industry-leading NX capabilities. Imagine … Better designs. Faster. With greater flexibility.
