Advanced technology brings generative modeling, additive manufacturing and reverse engineering capabilities to Solid Edge. Enabled by unique Siemens convergent modeling technology, these capabilities work alongside traditional Solid Edge editing tools to seamlessly integrate existing products into your development process.
Optimize products for minimal mass with goal-driven generative design, and further modify the components using reverse engineering. Easily make changes using synchronous technology. Finalize your parts by tapping into additive manufacturing processes- either 3D print them yourself or access an online network of services. Visualize your product in a real world environment.
Supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization, generative design speeds creation of lighter components perfectly suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes. Or use Solid Edge to further refine the shape for more traditional manufacturing.
Solid Edge allows you to incorporate mesh models into the design workflow to create real designs. You can also seamlessly combine traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions.
Solid Edge includes subdivision modeling capabilities that allow for rapid conceptualization of ideas without the need for expert knowledge. Unlike regular surface modeling, subdivision modeling uses stylized design to model complex surface shapes quickly and accurately, all without having to leave the Solid Edge environment.
With the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, even legacy parts designed on the drawing board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without complete reconstruction. Solid Edge allows you to scan, edit, and produce products faster with powerful reverse engineering tools and capabilities.
Solid Edge makes creating and editing 3D product designs faster and easier through our unique synchronous technology – combining the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design. Synchronous technology helps design engineers design for cost, keeping product development on track and within budget.
Validate digital design in a physical environment using computer-generated 3D models in real-world environments by connecting the digital environment with the physical world.
The engine behind Solid Edge is Siemens Parasolid® software, the most widely used computer-aided geometric modeling kernel in the industry. Parasolid delivers 100 percent 3D model compatibility between product development applications. By enabling the creation and modification of digital 3D models, Solid Edge delivers on the Siemens commitment to provide digital transformation capabilities to its users. Digital transformation allows even the smallest organizations to leverage technology to level the playing field with large enterprises.
