Design Automation


New member
We are trying to automate few design process and repeated tasks in UG NX, we would like to know what programming languages are used in MACRO, GRIP, UFUNC, KNOWLEDGE FUSION and difference between these functions. It would be great if someone can let us know which one of these would be the best for design automation.
First you should get idea of complexity of your design process,

For simple processes you can couple NX with Excel lined expressions (Very little programing)

Knowledge fusion is in-built kind of tool provided by NX for KBE applications. (Moderate level programing)

VB and Ufunc are totally different languages and they handle high complexities (extensive use of programing)
