Synera integrates Low-Code into Siemens Xcelerator

Integrating LowCode platform into various CAD, CAE & PLM products within Siemens Xcelerator portfolio

Integration with NX and Teamcenter complements Synera's extensive CAx connectivity with solutions from Siemens Digital Industries Software for engineers

Synera, the low-code engineering process automation platform, announces further integration of industry-leading engineering software from Siemens Digital Industries Software into its platform. Engineers can now process designs and CAD data directly from the product development solutions in the Siemens Xcelerator industrial software portfolio and feed back the results. In addition to integration with Siemens NX™ software, Siemens Solid Edge® users can also dramatically shorten product modelling, design and simulation processes via Synera workflows, freeing them from manual repetitive tasks.

The latest integration goes far beyond simple data exchange and extends to the ability to make parametric adjustments to the CAD model within Synera or to run selected Synera workflows from Siemens' NX Algorithmic Modeler. Designers can save Synera workflows in NX, view and update versioning through integration with Siemens' Teamcenter® product lifecycle management (PLM) software, access the Parasolid kernel in Synera, or exchange data such as geometry and simulation files with Teamcenter.

For engineers in many large companies, Siemens' Teamcenter is the central hub for product lifecycle management of their technical products. The link allows them to access, edit and check in data from Teamcenter directly into Synera. The tight integration helps users to control the user rights set up by the company for Teamcenter, and ensures that the versioning of data is seamlessly transferred, while allowing users to develop new things in their Synera workflows. This opens up new possibilities for design, engineering and simulation analysis experts, who can use the full functionality of Synera, which in turn integrates with other software products on the process automation platform and can be extended with numerous extensions from the Synera Marketplace. Synera's visual programming allows quick adaptation of simple algorithmic models, resulting in efficient and fast innovation cycles.

Deeper integration with Siemens NX

In addition to this data exchange between Teamcenter and Synera, the new NX integration goes even further. NX users can now access Synera workflows directly and use them within the Siemens NX Algorithmic Modeller. The reverse is also possible: anyone working in Synera can access NX parts and assemblies directly and change their parameters quickly and seamlessly. They can access a library of more than 700 ready-made nodes in Synera and adapt them for their own purposes.

The new options extend the collaboration between Siemens Digital Industry Software and Synera, which began in 2019. The collaboration started four years ago with the licensing of the proven, widely used and powerful Parasolid® kernel model, which is used in both Synera and NX. The integration of Siemens' Teamcenter, Solid Edge and NX now extends this integration.

Comprehensive process automation for nonprogramming engineers

Users of Siemens CAD/CAE/PLM tools now have new options that complement the built-in macro and algorithmic capabilities of the original software and extend them beyond the CAD domain into the CAE domain in particular. They allow engineers to work much more efficiently and to automate workflows to a high degree, without having to delve into programming.  

"Working with Synera and their innovative low-code solution is a great advantage for us.  Not only is the technology constantly and rapidly evolving, but it also perfectly complements Siemens' digital offering. This collaboration provides real value to all parties involved - both Synera users and Siemens product users," said Bob Haubrock, Senior Vice President, Product Engineering Software at Siemens Digital Industries Software.

"We are very pleased to have further enhanced the integration of Synera into Siemens Digital Industries' industry-leading software tools. For users, this means a tremendous reduction in workload and the convenience of using our leading low-code platform," added Moritz Maier, CEO of Synera. "The integration helps companies reduce costs and make more efficient use of the limited resource of highly specialised engineers.
