Question about NX CAD/CAM 3 Axis Milling Foundation and Add-on

Hello!

 

If my customer buys 2 copies of NX12450-NX CAD/CAM 3 Axie Milling Foundation ,

and 2 copies of NX30433-NX 3 Axis Milling Add-on.

 

Could they use 2 copies of CAD and 4 copies of CAM?

 

Thank you!

 

Best Regards

No, only two users can run an NX session, since the amount of gateway licenses is what counts.

Hi, Stefan Pendl!

Thanks to your attention about my issue.

 

 

NX30442 Add-on does not mean increasing the count of CAM licenses?

 

If my customer buys 2 copies of NX12450 and 2 copies of NX30440.

The amount of licenses does not 2 copies of CAD and 4 copies of CAM?

 

NX12450 Bundle is counted as one license?

 

Gateway has each modes such as Model, Drawing, Simulation, Manufacturing.

So, I thoungt CAD and CAM work independantly.

 

Could you explain it in more detail?

 

 

 

Thank you!

 

Best Regards.

[ Edited ]

A bundle contains many modules and if a bundle is used by one user all contained modules are locked by his NX session.

So for each NX seat you need one bundle, if you have six seats, you need six bundles.

The add-on's are only extending the base license bundle with additional modules not contained in the bundle.

If you need two CAD and four CAM seats you could use the following license bundles and add-on's:

  1. for 2 CAD seats
    • 2 bundles of AS5010
  2. for 4 CAM seats
    • 2 bundles NX12450, for the CAM guys that also do fixture design
    • 2 bundles NX11430 and the NX30442 add-on, for the CAM guys that are only doing 3-axis NC programming
