Mold making is a difficult, highly competitive business. Mold manufacturers need to estimate costs to win business and minimize the risk of loss. They must be able to meet strict deadlines with cost-effective, high-quality designs, and those designs must be manufacturable.

NX Mold Connect, from Siemens Digital Industries Software, resolves the key challenges manufacturers and tooling companies face by simplifying the bidding and estimating process, enabling seamless collaboration and helping ensure manufacturability of mold designs.
NX Mold Connect simplifies the bidding process with features like automated feature recognition for ribs, undercuts and openings to accelerate and improve cost estimation and Request for Quote (RFQ) workflow for tooling companies.
NX Mold Connect is an intuitive, browser-based application that boosts collaboration between plastic part designers and injection mold builders. Members of the part design team and the manufacturer can view, mark up and share designs using a common, secure, cloud-based repository—giving everyone real-time access to the latest designs and data. And, because NX can seamlessly work with designs created across disparate CAD tools, you can eliminate time-consuming, error-prone data conversion.
NX Mold Connect enables you to quickly and easily analyze and validate designs to ensure manufacturability of plastic parts.
