Technical Publications

Share designs more easily with detailed illustrations and interactive technical documents

The ability to clearly communicate the correct manufacturing, installation and maintenance procedures for your designs is essential to the performance of your products and the success of your business.

Solid Edge Technical Publications solutions enable your designers can quickly create many types of technical documents—from simple illustrations for end user manuals to interactive 3D technical documents for manufacturing and service. You can reduce the need for specialist technical authors or external services and produce top quality documents in-house.

Technical Publications

Work directly with your Solid Edge parts and assemblies

Solid Edge Technical Publications solutions are closely integrated with Solid Edge. This allows your designers to work directly with your Solid Edge parts and assemblies, and eliminates the need to convert your CAD files to a different format. Changes to original designs are easily incorporated into existing documents, speeding up the engineering change process and ensuring that your published documents accurately reflect the current design.

Quickly create detailed illustrations of your designs

Solid Edge Illustrations allows you to create high-quality 3D PDF documents and cloud-ready illustrations from your Solid Edge files and other 3D CAD formats. Use Solid Edge to capture 3D views, then add features including markups and balloons before publishing. Solid Edge provides a complete image, animation and template-based 3D PDF creation package, making it easy to create high-quality communications from your 3D models.

Publish interactive technical documents

Solid Edge 3D Publishing is easy-to-use technical document authoring software that enables you to embed Solid Edge and other 3D CAD models directly into your documents. Solid Edge includes a powerful set of tools for working with 3D CAD models, parts lists, and formatted text, allowing anyone to author complete printed or interactive technical documents in minutes.
