Solid Edge software is a joint development of Shining3D and Siemens PLM Software. It is an innovative next-generation platform that includes reverse engineering, generative design, modeling, and more combined with CAD tools.
Features of Solid Edge:
- The best solution for moving from 2D to 3D design
Solid Edge offers a cost-effective and efficient solution for moving from 2D to 3D. Users can take drawings in DWG or DXF format and use them to develop projects, which will minimize production downtime due to multiple product rework.
- Key modeling capabilities:
The entire line of EinScan scanners is integrated with Solid Edge, which will optimize and speed up the design process in any area (engineering, architecture, art, education, etc.).
Direct modeling with control of all parameters without complex manipulations. The user can easily and quickly change the required settings.
- Create new designs quickly, respond to changing requests, and update multiple parts in an assembly at the same time.
- Working with data from different CAD programs as if they were native files, thanks to cooperation with suppliers and partners.
Siemens Parasolid technology can significantly improve product design efficiency. Solid Edge has the ability to merge solid and triangular mesh objects without tedious and error-prone conversions.
Scan, edit and create products with new capabilities. Many companies develop products using components from other CAD systems. With the advent of high-resolution 3D scanners, it is now possible to digitize even parts designed on a drawing board. The reverse engineering tools in Solid Edge will help you with this. They will save you the trouble of wasting time on a complete renovation.
Topological optimization will help you create a part with the required functionality and the optimal combination of weight and strength.
- Adjustment of the project at the modeling stage
The easiest way to make changes to the object at the modeling stage, which in turn reduces the number of physical prototypes and, accordingly, reduces the time and cost of production.
- Direct output of models to your 3D printer.
Solid Edge allows you to print models directly to a 3D printer using the 3D Print command. This allows you to quickly make a model and automatically prepare the file for printing.
