New to NX, features assembly couplers. Assembly Couplers now allow users to define relative motion between components. This provides more accurate solutions are produced in less time by simulating realistic motions directly in Assemblies.

What's new? 


The new Gear, Rack and Pinion and Cable couplers will allow users to create motions that were not previously possible in Assemblies.

  • Existing joints are utilized to define relative component motion, example – rotating a gear component will rotate a corresponding gear
  • ‘Ratio’ values control the rate of relative motion
  • Offset values define component position


See here for a demo:
