What is Solid Edge?
Solid Edge is a complete hybrid 2D/3D CAD system that uses synchronous technology for accelerated design, faster revisions and better imported re-use to help companies design better.
Modules and Packages
Solid Edge leverages synchronous technology, enabling your company to deliver breakthrough designs. Designers can accelerate model creation without engaging in design preplanning. They also are able to perform faster ECO edits by eliminating model regeneration, while increasing the re-use of imported 2D or 3D data. This unique technology helps you get products to market faster, service customer needs better and reduce engineering design costs.
Solid Edge has proven successful in helping companies reduce engineering costs through better re-use of 2D and 3D data. Imported assembly layouts can drive 3D product design where interference checking can solve fit and position problems before manufacturing. Synchronous technology can edit imported 3D models, reducing the need for redesign.
With Solid Edge you can build entire 3D digital prototypes and optimize your designs before production. You can design assemblies with machined, cast or stylized components and leverage process-specific applications to simplify frame, piping, tube, wiring, weldement, and mold tooling design.
You can use digital prototyping to show how your products will operate and appear in real life through exploded views, photo realistic renderings and animations. With more accurate digital prototypes, you can achieve higher levels of product quality in less time.
The Solid Edge user interface removes the need for unnecessary decisions. Logical inference engines recommend next steps and intuitively consider affected geometry.
The SmartStep ribbon bar guides you through the feature creation process, presenting design decisions in a logical sequence, letting you easily review and change decisions to optimize your designs. Through this unparalleled ease of use and adoption, you spend less time fighting the CAD system and more time focusing on your designs.
Solid Edge offers a full suite of tools that let designers author, edit, distribute, and explore design alternatives. Engineering teams can package design and supporting data into a compact collaboration file, facilitating fast design iteration.
Using XpresReview, a free, downloadable viewer, files can easily be shared with internal teams, vendors, and customers. This process can be tightly managed and controlled through Insight, Insight XT or Teamcenter.
2D to 3D with ease
Ease of Adoption
Sheet Metal Design
Solid Edge provides a complete sheet metal design system from modeling, flattening and manufacturing documentation. Create straight brake, rolled or transition type components complete with flanges, holes, relief, and corner options. You can validate designs for manufacturing, document the bend sequence and send flat patter DXF files directly to production.
Massive Assembly Optimization
Efficient display management tools, such as configurations and design zones, help you focus on relevant parts and tasks; this is ideal for concurrent design. Modeling performance receives a significant boost from an inactive lightweight mode that frees memory of unused data. Support for 64-bit computers lets you open and work with your largest designs faster and more efficiently. Manage designs from 1 to 100,000 parts with Solid Edge.
Hybrid Design Environment
Solid Edge combines the best of both history-based and history-free modeling worlds. Solid Edge with synchronous technology combines the speed of explicit modeling with the precise control of parameterized design to provide the fastest most flexible design experience possible. Designers can choose the most appropriate technology yet leverage either technology depending on need.
World Class Drafting
Drawings are the key deliverable for many companies, and Solid Edge focuses on helping you decrease costs by reducing drawing production time. Dimension retrieval and automatic parts lists with balloons speed detailing time. Drawings are always kept up to date by alerting users of any change in the referenced 3D model. Unmatched parts list configurability enables accurate communication throughout the design process.
Digitally validate part and assembly designs with Solid Edge Simulation; a built-in finite element analysis (FEA) tool. Based on proven Femap finite element modeling and NX Nastran solver technology, Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, lowering your material and testing costs. Create finite element models for solids and sheet metal structures automatically. Interpret and understand the resulting model behavior quickly with the comprehensive graphical post-processing tools in Solid Edge Simulation.
Solid Edge XpresRoute eases the design of mechanical routed systems. Designers can specify attributes such as size, extents and end treatments via simple dialog boxes. For piping systems, 3D pipes, fittings and components are automatically positioned and correctly oriented upon population. All components are fully associative and update with the parts to which they are connected. When the assembly model is modified, pipes and tubes automatically adapt to design changes.
