Work on mesh models with the same commands you use on b-rep models
Convergent modeling enables you to work seamlessly with the mesh based models created using generative design and reverse engineering. Perform traditional operations on:
Digitally scanned 3D data
Convergent Modeling simplifies the process of working with scanned data. Scanned 3D data is imported in Solid Edge as faceted, or mesh, data so that you can immediately start designing—no lengthy conversion process, no manual shape creation and no need to build surfaces.
Models created using generative design
With Convergent Modeling, the optimized components coming out of generative design can be sent directly for additive manufacturing or analysis, or further modified in Solid Edge. The meshed results are seamlessly integrated into the normal model editing process, allowing you to get the final design needed for the task at hand. No more waiting for tedious, inaccurate conversions from triangular mesh to b-rep.
Components for additive manufacturing
Whether your designs are created using traditional modeling, generative design or imported from a 3D scanner, they can used directly for 3D printing, mold design, analysis and more. Convergent Modeling removes limitations by giving designers the flexibility to bring optimized shapes from concept to reality, taking advantage of the materials and techniques of additive manufacturing.
