    SW EPDM and NX

    Aaron Godwin

      How does SW EPDM handle NX files?


      We're looking at an upgrade to EDPM and use NX for some stuff so I want to know how that's going to effect us. Do we need a bridge like for Pro-E?


      Thanks in advance...

          Most likely that you need a integration software for that. But you may also consider to run Teamcenter with the SWIM (Solidworks) integration. From what I  have seen and experienced, Teamcenter handles SW files well. There is a bit of configuration needed but I guess it is similar to any CAD/PDM integration.  


          Just wanted to point out that option to use Teamcenter since NX was mentioned.

            Hello Aaron,


            EPDM considers NX files to be just that, files. It will not read the references, build the BOM's or build Contains/Where Used information.


            I am sure there are third party applications that will read the information from the files and create this information, but out of the box, EPDM does not do this.
