Medical Devices

Proven, flexible NX solutions help speed up innovation in medical device development.

NX Design for medical devices

Innovative design and production of medical instruments and equipment are required by healthcare therapies that are becoming more consumer-focused and individualized. Our technologies allow for quicker and simpler modifications and improvements both throughout the manufacturing phase and the regulatory approval process. Create cutting-edge medical products quickly and confidently knowing that your design, development, and production environments will do so.

NX allows for the usage and modification of scanned data for numerous downstream processes, such as 3D printing and virtual clinical trials, without requiring considerable rework, which speeds up and simplifies dealing with scanned data. In contrast to the past, a customer can now scan an anatomical structure and quickly create a model of a medical device based on it. From scanned data to completed products, NX is an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE solution that can handle all tasks.

Medical Image Processing is made up of powerful features that allow you to build a custom solution. Read more about these features below.

3D printing

Convergent Modeling is a cutting-edge modeling paradigm that makes working with geometry made up of a mix of facets, surfaces, and solids easier without the need for time-consuming data conversion. It’s the first technology of its type, allowing engineers to speed up the entire design process, optimize parts for 3D printing, and make reverse engineering a much more prevalent and effective approach to product design.

The scanned data can be used and updated after it is in NX for a variety of further uses, including 3D printing and virtual clinical trials, which allow a device to be test-fit in the virtual world before the design is finalized.

Medical Convergent Modeling

The medical sector is becoming more personalized, with structures designed specifically for individual patients. As a result, anatomically accurate CAD models are required. For this, the model must first be created around existing structures before they are scanned into 3D.

Working with scanned data is much quicker and simpler with NX with Convergent Modeling since it can be used and modified without requiring a lot of rework. This implies that a customer can scan an anatomical structure and create a model of a medical device based on it considerably more quickly than in the past. They can finish their designs more quickly and precisely by employing a design tool that can simply edit scanned-in data.
