Your digitalization journey starts here | Solid Edge Design
Solid Edge is a portfolio of affordable, easy-to-use software tools that address all aspects of the product development process – 3D design, simulation, manufacturing, data management and more, thanks to a growing ecosystem of apps. Solid Edge combines the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design – made possible with synchronous technology.
The simplicity of direct modeling with the control of parametric design
Solid Edge synchronous technology allows you to rapidly create new concept designs, easily respond to change requests, and make simultaneous updates to multiple parts within an assembly. With this design flexibility, you can eliminate cumbersome preplanning and avoid feature failures, rebuild issues, and time-consuming rework. The power of synchronous technology also allows you to treat multi-CAD data just like native files, supporting seamless collaboration with suppliers and partners.
Next Generation Design
Learn more about next generation technologies
Optimize products for minimal mass with goal driven generative design, and further modify the components using reverse engineering. Easily make changes using synchronous technology. Finalize your parts by tapping into additive manufacturing processes- either 3D print them yourself or access an online network of services. The future of 3D product development—generative modeling, additive manufacturing and reverse engineering, enabled by Convergent Modeling technology.
Sheet Metal Design
Complete and Automated Sheet Metal Design in Solid Edge
To meet unique sheet metal design challenges, like manufacturability, Solid Edge streamlines the entire sheet metal product development process, from CAD design through flat pattern and drawing development. Unlike general purpose CAD tools, Solid Edge includes sheet metal-specific features, like Emboss, Dimple, Drawn Cut, Bead, Contour Flange, Straight Brake and Etch. And with integrated applications for analysis, NC programming, and related tasks.
Assembly Modeling and Management
Create and manage large assemblies without sacrificing performance
As designs become more complex, the number of parts in an assembly often grows. Solid Edge helps users quickly and easily create and manage even the largest assemblies, without lags or crashes. Create exact representations of all components—including tubes, pipes, wires, weldments and sheet metal—in a complete digital mockup that allows for more accurate design and analysis.
CAD Drawing and Drafting
Easy CAD drawing and drafting with Solid Edge
As product designs and assemblies become more complex and with a host of global drawing standards to consider, creating, annotating, and updating drawings can be a challenge. With Solid Edge, drawing layout, detailing, annotation and dimensioning controls automatically comply with the mechanical drafting standard you select.
Modular Plant Design
Solid Edge P&ID and piping solutions for modular plant design
Solid Edge P&ID and piping solutions for modular plant design include support for P&ID creation, linked 3D piping and Isogen® output, ensuring that your products are designed right—the first time, and every time. Solid Edge P&ID Design provides 2D flow diagram and symbol support for P&ID creation, supporting ANSI/ISA, DIN, and EN ISO standards to meet strict governing requirements.
Solid Edge delivers cloud-enabled design–on your terms
Solid Edge delivers the cloud capabilities you need by providing easy access to professional 3D CAD across different devices, instant configuration of your CAD environment to your personal preferences, and the ability to quickly share your data across your design resources and with suppliers and customers.
Photo-realistic images and animations from within the modeling environment
A picture of your finished product can help you communicate your design to both internal and external stakeholders. The beauty of rendering is that you can generate realistic looking photo quality images before you even cut the first piece of material to manufacture your product.
