Solid Edge:

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.

The Benefits of Solid Edge

Solid Edge Key Capabilities


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.

Sheet Metal Design

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.

Massive Assembly Optimization

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.

Scalable Simulation

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.

Pipe Routing

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.
