Solid Edge Standard Parts is a powerful parts management system that allows designers to define, store, select and position commonly used parts — like fasteners, bearings, structural steel members and pipe fittings— quickly and efficiently, enabling rapid and precise completion of 3D assemblies. With Solid Edge Standard Parts, companies establish and share their own standards, so designers can concentrate on creative design and not on redundant modeling tasks.
Solid Edge Standard Parts makes component libraries easily accessible, so users can quickly find the right part and effortlessly place them in Solid Edge assemblies, all within company standards.
The standard parts wizard is delivered with every copy of Solid Edge, and includes a baseline complement of components. Designers use the wizard to populate the library with required components that meet approved company standards, either all at once or while designing. Once defined, all components can be quickly located and placed using the same wizard.
Solid Edge Machinery and Piping Libraries In addition to the baseline of components delivered with Solid Edge, additional libraries are available as optional add-on packages:
The Solid Edge Machinery Library contains thousands of components that support a growing range of international standards (ANSI, DIN, ISO, AFBMA, AISC, UNI, JIS, GB).
The Solid Edge Piping Library contains an extensive selection of standard fittings, including elbows, bends, returns, Ys, tees, and reducers, as well as a large collection of essential components such as flanges, unions and seals. Fittings are available in a variety of relevant end treatments, such as threaded, welded, flanged and slip-on.
Each of these libraries helps to ensure that all purchased and standard components conform to engineering and purchasing requirements, and the libraries are continually growing. Download the spreadsheets on this page for a complete listing.
Solid Edge XpresRoute eases the design of mechanical routed systems. A comprehensive set of industry-specific design tools helps designers quickly route and model piping and tubing in Solid Edge assemblies. Fully integrated with Solid Edge, XpresRoute utilizes process-specific workflows that match industry best practices and work the way that you want to work. With XpresRoute, you not only accelerate your design process for mechanical routed systems, you also enjoy improved BOM accuracy and lower costs through standardization.
Solid Edge Web Publisher is an additional software module that makes it extremely fast and easy to share design information over the Internet or company intranets. Web Publisher is seamlessly integrated with Solid Edge, so you can publish web pages with Solid Edge 3D models and related data in seconds, directly from your Solid Edge design session, without any web publishing expertise. Using industry-leading technology developed by Immersive Design, Inc., Web Publisher facilitates access to design engineering data throughout the manufacturing enterprise and to customers and suppliers.
Solid Edge Wire Harness Design is a dedicated process driven environment for the efficient creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles in a Solid Edge assembly. Wire Harness Design allows electrical and mechanical design teams to collaborate on designs to create complete and accurate digital mockups containing both mechanical and electrical components, and removes the need for expensive physical prototypes.
