Are you working from home? then you may be able to use the Borrow License option or Log in remotely to your companies network.

 

If your attempting to learn NX then you would need to attend a school that teaches nx and maybe get a student license.

 

or Spend about $30,000. for  your own license.

 

As far a I know ther is no "Free trial license"  Why would they give it away?

Re: Home Use License

What is your "home use"?

As @camster says, if you are doing real work, you should borrow your employer's license.

If you are learning, look for a student edition, which has restrictions to limit it's output.

Borrowing is really a PITA

 

My best solution was to setup an incoming VPN connection on my "server".

I login from home and point my laptop at the local server IP. If there is a license available I can select it and work.

 

Its very easy this way.

To answer your borrow question:

In the MS "Start" menu -> All programs -> Siemens NX10.0 -> NX Licensing tools -> Licensing tool

proceed from there

 

Note if you have 1 license at your company, and you borrow it overnight, someone working 2nd shift will not be able to work (borrowed licenses are "in use" until the end of the borrow time or until returned early)

And returning early has not always worked for me. I have chosen to not set the time very long.

I 2nd the vpn connection.  That way you can use a license as if you were sitting in your office, you do not have to be concerned about borrow times and you can work with your files which are on the company network.

Note if you use any files on a network drive, that will (typically) REALLY slow things down when NX is used over a VPN.  Make sure all the files you need are on your local (C:\ or whatever) drive(s).
