Capabilities

Learn more about next generation technologies

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.

Generative Design

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.

Convergent Modeling

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.

Additive Manufacturing

Solid Edge additive manufacturing solutions enable you to create world class products using the latest 3D printing and additive manufacturing techniques.

3D Reverse Engineering

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.

Synchronous Technology

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.
