Dear Siemens 3D simulation user,
Simcenter 3D is Siemens PLM Software’s next generation 3D multi-discipline simulation solution that builds on the heritage of our NX™ CAE, LMS Virtual.Lab™, and LMS Samtech™ products.
It leverages Siemens PLM Software’s NX platform, and integrates from the onset all current NX CAE applications as well as some initial key LMS Virtual.Lab and LMS Samtech applications. Increasingly over the next Simcenter 3D releases, ever more LMS Virtual.Lab and LMS Samtech applications will be integrated.
Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone CAE application, or as an integrated CAD/CAE application within NX.
This article explains the changes for our current 3D Simulation users:
What is the Simcenter portfolio and which products are included in the portfolio?
Engineering departments today must develop smart products that integrate mechanical functions with electronics and controls, utilize new materials and manufacturing methods and deliver new designs within ever shorter design cycles. This requires current engineering practices for product performance verification to evolve into a more predictive role for systems driven product development.
Simcenter software from Siemens PLM Software uniquely combines system simulation, 3D CAE and test to help you predict performance across all critical attributes earlier and throughout the entire product lifecycle.
Products in the portfolio include:
What is Simcenter 3D?
Simcenter 3D is our next generation 3D multi-discipline simulation solution that builds on the heritage of our NX CAE, LMS Virtual.Lab, and LMS Samtech products.
Built on our NX platform, Simcenter 3D is available as a standalone CAE application or as an integrated CAD/CAE application within NX.

When can you start using Simcenter 3D?
Simcenter 3D will be available for download through our GTAC site in August, coinciding with the next release of NX.
How can you learn more about Simcenter?
Join us for an informative webinar series where you will learn how Simcenter software can help you predict performance across all critical attributes earlier and throughout the entire product lifecycle. You will also learn about Simcenter 3D, a next generation multi-discipline simulation solution that can dramatically speed up your 3D CAE process
All webinars will be recorded and will become available on demand after their original broadcast date.
What changes will happen in the Community?
None of the forums or knowledge bases that you currently participate in will change in the near-term. We want all of our users to better understand Simcenter and the products within the portfolio so changes to the Community will happen later in the year after the release of Simcenter 3D in early August. At that time, you will see a new Simcenter category that will house many of the forums and knowledge bases including the NX CAE Forum and NX Simulation Knowledge base. The NX Simulation category will no longer exist.
If you have further questions, please post them below or contact your local Siemens PLM Software representative.
