Following a business review, Siemens PLM Software has decided to retire the version of NX software product on Mac OS. This decision, although difficult, allows us to devote additional resources to accelerate delivery of new functionality and solutions.

Siemens has devoted significant resources to the Mac OS. However, monitoring customer usage in our regular business reviews we have concluded that our customers will be better served by accelerating our delivery schedules by redeploying the developers working on platform specific projects. NX 12, released in October 2017, will be the final enhancement release on the Mac OS. NX 12 will continue to be available for the Mac OS through December 2019 with maintenance updates via the regular maintenance process. 

Customers with Mac OS can open existing Mac OS saved NX part files on Windows. User knowledge and experience with NX will be preserved. GTAC team will continue to provide support for NX 12 running on the Mac OS. 

Careful thought and consideration have gone into this decision. We value you as a loyal customer and we are committed to your success. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding during this time of change. For more information about NX and supported platforms, please contact your Siemens PLM Software account manager.
