Improve Assembly Design

Improve Assembly Design

Solid Edge helps you create and manage large assemblies without sacrificing performance. As designs become more complex, the number of parts in an assembly often grows. Solid Edge solutions for Assembly Modeling and Management help you 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.Quickly detect and fix clash and interference issues, generate assembly instructions, and conduct customer reviews—reducing the need for costly prototypes.

Unparalleled performance for large assemblies

Solid Edge advanced memory management techniques allow you to easily manage assembly modeling. Quickly create, load and make updates to large assemblies and their associated drawings. Simplification of assemblies, definition of assembly zones, and structure-only navigation free up system memory and allow your graphics display to work more efficiently.

Bottom-up and top-down modeling in context

With Solid Edge, you can design the way you want to, whether bottom-up (by assembling existing components), or top-down (starting from a conceptual layout or by designing parts to fit into an existing assembly). No matter how your design begins, you can work in the context of your assembly.

Rapid design of frames and weldments

Solid Edge includes process-specific applications to speed the creation of rigid frame structures and weldments. Embedded engineering process knowledge, along with structured workflows, help you design frames and weldments much faster than with general-purpose CAD modeling tools.

Realistic assembly rendering and animation

Solid Edge helps bring designs to life with full photo-realistic rendering, including graphical light placement, soft shadows, and reflections. Realistic motion simulations can be created with powerful explode tools, saved as movies, and shared.
