Achieve faster and more efficient consumer durables design with Solid Edge
We understand that you need to quickly bring to market the latest in attractive, easy-to-use and reliable products for your customers.
The Solid Edge Advantage
Solid Edge can speed consumer durables design and help your company flourish in the dynamic consumer durables business envrionment, allowing you to:
Digitalize engineering processes. Digitalize your entire product development process and transform your business. Streamline engineering processes with 3D digital models. Add intelligence to 3D models throughout the product development lifecycle.
Speed mechanical design with 3D CAD. Use a history-free approach to 3D CAD with synchronous technology. Design complex parts and assemblies quickly and flexibly. Work directly with design geometry and make changes instantly.
Integrate electromechanical design efforts. Create fully functional and manufacturable designs using industry-proven wiring and harness design capabilities. Enable seamless ECAD-MCAD collaboration for electrical and mechanical engineers.
Create unique products based on organic shapes. Develop distinctive products using subdivision modeling technology without the need for expert knowledge. Solid Edge offers advanced capabilities for shape creation, manipulation, and analysis, with intuitive freeform modeling tools that create stylized shapes.
Meet customer and regulatory requirements. Manage customer and regulatory requirements using requirements management. Make requirements easily visible to design engineers, and track fulfillment of these requirements.
Enable paperless 3D documentation. Communicate more effectively and reduce manufacturing costs using annotated 3D models rather than 2D drawings with model-based definition. Spend less time on documentation.
Validate and improve product performance. Validate and improve performance of products with scalable simulation tools that use virtual prototyping and new integrated motion and vibration simulation. Communicate your digital design documentation globally with XLIFF language translation.
Collaborate on PCB design. Use industry-leading schematic capture and PCB layout tools to avoid costly redesign. Enable real-time collaboration between ECAD-MCAD teams to overcome electromechanical challenges.
With 3D CAD, electrical design, simulation, manufacturing and data management capabilities, Solid Edge provides an integrated portfolio of affordable and easy-to-use solutions that help consumer durables manufacturing companies design better.
Use a digital twin to optimize product development
Digital transformation of product design and development provides an opportunity for consumer durables manufacturers to improve their product development process and optimize the performance of the final product. Using digital 3D models during design enables a streamlined product development process and faster time to market for new products.
3D digital models, or “digital twins,” created by Solid Edge, can reduce development time by 50 percent. Data added to the digital model can be leveraged throughout the product lifecycle.
