Have you looked at the 'Moldflow Part Adviser'?  Granted, it's a separate module, but it is integrated into NX.

I think it's integrated, but try it and see what happens.

Our 'problem' is that internally, when we install NX, we get EVERYTHING, so sometimes it not all that easy to determine whether users have this feature or not since there are so many configurations possible with all of the various bundles and such.  Besides, unless I start NX in a certain way, it doesn't even behave as it would if it were a bundled license since our license file has every item checked-off so the concept of bundles, at least for internal users, is often a bit moot.
