ABAQUS Associative Interface for NX (AAIN)


ABAQUS Associative Interface for NX

Key advantages

  • Maintains relationship between NX and Abaqus/CAE assemblies.
  • Enables seamless (1-click) geometry transfer or update
  • Eliminates the need for rework because geometric changes propagate without the loss of analysis features

Product capabilities

  • Import of parts and assemblies
  • Option to export solids, surfaces or wireframe geometry
  • Automatic transfer of part colors
  • Suppressed/Resume state update
  • Part position/orientation update
  • Geometric feature modifications

After importing to Abaqus, further changes made in NX are propagated into Abaqus/CAE while retaining previously created Abaqus/CAE sets, surfaces and analysis features.

Product Prerequisites

  • NX
  • Abaqus/CAE
