Drafting & Documentation

Tools to expedite the preparation of drawings, product documentation, and 2D design.

2D Design and Documentation

Using highly efficient drafting tools, quickly and easily create engineering drawings from 3D models. The drafting software generates drawing views automatically from 3D part and assembly models and assists you in aligning and scaling drawing views as well as arranging drawing sheets. Comprehensive annotation tools help you align your drawings with manufacturing specifications. Advanced change tracking shortens and eliminates drawing checking time. Our products include powerful and productive 2D design, layout, drafting, annotation, and documentation capabilities that are ideal for 2D, hybrid 2D/3D, and 3D design environments.

Drafting & Documentation is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.

Comply with Drafting Standards

NX makes it simple to adhere to major national and international drafting standards. Simply select your desired standard to ensure that all elements of your drawings are in compliance.

Optimize 2D Design and Drafting in NX CAD

Optimize 2D Design and Drafting

NX Layout is a simple 2D concept design solution for NX that is integrated with a common user interface in tried-and-true technology. It improves 2D conceptual design by employing intelligent, design-centric, reusable objects known as 2D components. By allowing you to explore concepts in 2D, iterate, and transfer them to 3D, automatically creating an assembly based on a layout speeds up the product design phase. NX Layout reduces the cost of training, maintenance, and implementation by eliminating the need to maintain multiple systems to solve 2D design requirements.

Trouble-free 2D Modification

NX includes synchronous technology for 2D, an advanced feature that speeds up the editing of 2D CAD data – even files from other systems. Geometric relationships are inferred by the technology, allowing for quick and efficient changes in layouts and engineering drawings.
