NX Mach 1, Mach 2 and Mach 3 CAD

NX changes names of their CAD bundles from NX Mach 1 to NX Design Standard, from NX Mach 2 to NX Design Advanced and from NX Mach 3 to NX X Design Premium. Only the names have changed, NX and NX X remain the same award winning "Best CAD" for design.

What is NX CAD Mach bundles?

Siemens NX Mach bundles were three pre-packaged bundled CAD tools designed to provide comprehensive solutions for product development, manufacturing, and machining, with a focus on specific CAD needs, industries, or applications. They aim to streamline workflows, improve efficiency and enhance collaboration throughout the product lifecycle. The three award-winning pre-packaged bundles remain the same but now go by NX Design instead of NX Mach.
