In the first week of May 2013, the CAE NX9 beta test took place. This was carried out in Milfort, near Cincinnati USA directly in the building of the main development of the Siemens NX CAE software. From our company Andreas Rauschnabel, Haiko Klause and Peter Binde traveled to the USA for a week and participated the test. We took advantage of on one side early to know the new software and the opportunity to discuss with the developers and at the same time to check the software for quality and to document bugs. At the present time we may not want to reveal any details about NX9 to the public, but we are sure that it is again a major release with many new interesting features.
