Algorithmic Modeling

 An intuitive tool to help designers create rule-driven, complex and intricately detailed 3D models that are a true digital representation of a product in a realistic way. It provides designers a drag-and-drop, no-code capability for creating reuseable geometric patterned elements. Leveraging within the NX environment, algorithmic modeling lets users define the intent and rules for their design by connecting together inputs and outputs in a highly intuitive visual logic workflow.

An introduction to Algorithmic Modeling

Gone are the days of simplistic modeling in the world of CAD. When you combine the ever-increasing demands of the customer with the computational processing power of designers across the globe, you get the complex models we are seeing across multiple industries. Sure, products look incredible when they hit the market, but creating these models includes minute and repetitive features for functional and aesthetic purposes; usually these features are difficult to model individually using traditional CAD tools.

The importance of the Logic Editor

The Logic Editor within NX™ software plays a crucial role to allow you to author rules easily. Occasionally, complex logical rules can require several feature operations within the flowchart, i.e. the output from one operation works as the input to the next. NX Algorithmic Features excel as they do not ‘remember’ these temporary construction features that lead to the final set of output geometries. The result? An output which is as light as possible, reducing the demand from graphical and computational power, and laying the groundwork to build complex designs.
