Dear Siemens PLM Customer,


We are pleased to inform you that the latest product release of NX is now available for download from the Siemens PLM Download Server.

 

Download of NX on Windows 64-bit

Please use the following steps to download the NX product release and its documentation.
Note: A valid WebKey account is required.

• In your browser's address field enter the URL: https://download.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/
   Login using your WebKey username and password

• From the Download page, enter "SiemensNX-1859_wntx64" (including the quotes) in the Search field to return a list of links for the Release Letter and the Release Packages.

• Alternatively the NX product release can be found using file navigator by entering NX into the Product Filter feature on the left of your browser and then navigating through the NX directory structure as follows:
      o Expand the "NX" folder

To download the NX product:
      o Right click on the Release Package files
      o Select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to save the files to your local destination

 

• When an NX series is replaced by a newer version, the previous version (including its documentation) will be moved to the "NX Supported" folder within the "NX Support" folder. For example, NX 1855 can be downloaded as follows:
      o Expand the "NX Support" folder
      o Expand the "NX Supported" folder
      o Expand the "NX 1847 Series" folder
      o Expand the available release name; "NX 1855"

Note: There are two options to download NX:

  • The first option is recommended for customers running the most recent versions of NX (1847/1851/1855). To upgrade, download the following file and double click to begin the installation program. Automatic updates are currently unavailable within NX.
    • SiemensNX-1859_wntx64_MSP.zip

  • The second option is recommended for customers who are not on the most recent version and are able to download the release in a single file. 
    • SiemensNX-1859_wntx64.zip

 

• Once NX has been installed, on-context help will point to the GTAC online documentation by default, so you only need to download the documentation if you want to install a local documentation server.

To download the NX documentation:      

      o Expand the "NX" folder
      o Expand the "NX 1847 Series" folder
      o Expand the "Documentation" folder
      o Right click on the product documentation link
      o Select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" to save the file to your local destination.
      In all cases, please refer to the supplied README file for installation instructions.


If you encounter any problems during this installation, please contact your local Siemens PLM Software support office.

Hi @BenBroad ,

I've a new workstation, a Lenovo ThinkStation P330, the performance are fantastic. Unzip 7 gb (NX1859) is done in 2 minutes, but the .msp (1 gb) need 23 minutes.

The update of NX11 mp13 (2.5 gb)  into 2 minutes.

Why the .msp update have too much difference ?

The NX 1863 automatic update will have better performance respect to the .msp update ?

Thank you...

Very important fix (concerning bug affecting some languages other than English), although reported and PR'ed as severe over a month ago, is still not implemented. So much for the quicker roll-out of improvements! Man Sad

Hi @cubalibre00 

 

I'm not sure why the msp is different.  I'm currently downloading to test it myself.

Installing the NX 1859 monthly update restores the automatic update cadence.  The ability to download and install updates automatically will be available once NX 1863 has been posted.  AFAIK it will still be a .msp file and I believe development are working on improving performance.

@BenBroad Hello! That is PR 9396978. Move to layer stopped working for the Russian language in NX1851. That tool has been around flawless for decades.

Hi @cubalibre00 

 

Here are my recorded times (using 7zip 18.0.4):

 

  • Unzip SiemensNX-1859_wntx64.zip = 148 seconds
  • Unzip SiemensNX-1859_wntx64_MSP.zip = 26 seconds

I can't explain why it's taking you 23 minutes to uncompress the msp zip file.  Maybe your version of WinZip or 7zip, or whatever utility you're using?

 

Regards, Ben
