Artificial Intelligence enabled features

Select Similar Components:

Identify geometrically similar components with machine learning enabled shape recognition and perform component operations.

Selection Prediction:

The selection prediction inside NX predicts input selection entities. This is a standard feature in the Mach3 Product Design and Mach 3 Industrial Design bundles. You can preview and select predicted objects using current selection intent rules. You’re also able to generate custom selection prediction machine learning models using in-house data.

Selection Prediction

NX Voice Command Assist:

With NX Voice Command Assist you are able to transform multiple levels of menus and clicks with easy-to-use single keyword expressions. Give it a try today! Watch our demonstration of this below.

Custom machine learning model generation by using your organizations existing infrastructure:

Available to you as an optional add-on module you now have the ability to gather, process and generate a custom machine learning model based upon your organizations infrastructure. Here’s how it works:
Use processed data for training a domain specific machine learning model. Test the data extractor and submit the processed data for custom machine learning model generation. Documentation and breakout sessions on-demand for testing.
