Easy access from any device

Cloud-ready Solid Edge is installed and run from your local device and files are cached locally, ensuring consistent high-performance and reliability. Solid Edge users can continue to work uninterrupted even if they lose internet connection. This is essential for CAD users when traveling, working on-site with customers, and for anyone without a 100% reliable internet connection.

Easy access to CAD from any device

Solid Edge follows you wherever you go. Your CAD license can be held on the cloud and a simple login lets you run Solid Edge wherever you are. And with the Solid Edge Portal, you have access to online CAD file viewing from any device—with browser-based access for viewing CAD files on your phone, tablet, Chromebook, Mac, PC and more. This makes it easier for you to move from device to device, whether you are at a customer site or your home office.

Personalized CAD environment at your fingertips

When you switch from one device to another, for example from using a workstation in the office to a tablet when visiting a customer, you can retrieve your personalized Solid Edge environment – including your menu options, colors, units and drawing standards – with just a few mouse clicks, and quickly complete cloud-based design tasks.

Software updates available on-demand

Instead of searching for, downloading and distributing software updates, you can give users the capability to directly access the latest Solid Edge maintenance pack and install it when you choose.

Easily vault and share CAD files

Solid Edge users can leverage popular cloud-based file sharing software like Dropbox, Microsoft One Drive, Google Drive or Box to backup, share and collaborate on their CAD files. A complete vault of CAD files can be replicated at 2 or more sites enabling fast access to the data you need, and a file locking mechanism prevents one user from accidentally overwriting another user’s changes.
