The video below relates to a  demonstration movie with voice over that illustrates some of the new Convergent Modelling capabilities within the latest release of Siemens PL flagship digital design software, NX 12. Working directly on facet/polygon models, NX 12 streamlines the design process when working with Generative Designs by enabling the designer to directly manipulate the facet bodies. There is no need to employ a specific niche tool to do this work, its all done in NX 12.




How can I enable the Topology Opt tab?

Hello @ddiaz,


First of all, Topology Optimization for Designers is License controlled. So first of all you need a license for this.


Secondly, you have to download the software separately from NX from our download site. (In the future it will be embedded).

After you have these 2 prerequisites, you can simply edit the ribbon bar, and select the tab to toggle it on.


I hope this answers your Question.


Kind regards,



Yes! Thank you. I am in now.
