UG NX Import by Datakit



Provides Open CASCADE-based applications with the capability of reading and manipulating native data from UG NX. This UG NX data exchange solution works as an Open CASCADE Plug-in. It allows importing BRep data (geometrical and topological data) alone or in assemblies (defined with components as located parts). PRT files can be converted.


* Reading geometry and topology information from UG NX.

Geometrical and topological native UG NX file can be converted to Open CASCADE Technology shapes. Translation calls on the Shape Healing function to produce data which meet the consistency requirements of Open CASCADE Technology. The plug-in processes a PRT file of NX. Data can be exchanged by calling these interface library functions.

Assemblies defined in UG NX, made of components defined as located parts or other assemblies (for assemblies at several levels), are converted to compound shapes of Open CASCADE Technology, reflecting the initial data sharing of parts.


This translator provides native and direct exchange of UG NX data with Open CASCADE Technology-based applications and can considerably extend the scope and increase the quality and speed of translation. It meets the growing needs of interoperability between specific applications and users’ existing CAD systems. The interface

  • provides a high level of shapes' data exchange quality;
  • requires no third-party license;
  • expands data exchange capabilities of your analysis codes.


The UG NX Plug-in is available for Open CASCADE Technology versions available for Open CASCADE Technology versions 6.3.0, 6.3.1, 6.5.0, 6.5.1, 6.5.5, 6.6.0, 6.7.0 and 6.7.1. You can ask Datakit if you need another version.

This translator requires Open CASCADE Technology version 6.3.0, 6.3.1, 6.5.0, 6.5.1, 6.5.5, 6.6.0, 6.7.0 and 6.7.1 and is available on Windows platforms supported for these versions of Open CASCADE Technology.
