Hello Everyone,


Is anyone aware about the current status of the Multi Processing / Threading in NX CAM.


  1. What is the current status of Parallel generate ?  Are there some improvements/enhancements ?
  2. What is the current status of Multithread in a single operation? (I last heard that iw was started with Multi Threading in NX 9 and wanted further to integrate i more)
  3. Is multithread active for all operation types in NX CAM or ?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

  1. Parallel generate was already using multiple processors by spanning multiple processes in NX 7.5, you just had to set a customer default. With NX 8.5 this was improved for automatic separation, the customer default is still needed to specify the maximum number of processors/cores to use.
  2. The whats new guide and the Siemens PLM Americas connection should include a slide about the time savings when generating cavity milling, z-level profile and some other operation types.
  3. ISV has a big performance improvement in NX 10
  4. 3D verify has a big performance improvement in NX 10

If you check the what's new guide of each NX release, you should get plenty of information about performance improvements Smiley Wink
