How NX Mold Connect works

NX Mold Connect provides an easily accessible solution for OEMs and tool shops to collaborate on injection molded parts.

Engineer optimizing a new part design for injection molding.

NX Mold Connect enables tool shops to collaborate seamlessly with OEM clients in one central location on injection molded parts. With the NX Mold Connect app, tool shops are able to improve quoting and accuracy of workflows while OEMs are better able to predict their costs before RFQ submission.

Collaboration between OEM and tool shop

Share mold-making projects with users and submit requests for quote (RFQ) through the app. This seamless process eliminates the need for other various communication efforts and manual file transfer methods, allowing users to easily view the status of their project throughout the process.

Mold part design for manufacturing

Perform mold part design validation using design for manufacturing (DFM) analysis on part geometry, wall thickness, mold filling, and part features at the click of a button. Doing this early in product development reduces the need for rework and material waste.

Final injection molded part cost estimation

Synchronize files from desktop to cloud and ensure that tool shops and OEMs are working with the most current data. Using up-to-date data for feature recognition and automated tool costing provides the most accurate estimation of injection molded part cost.
