Synchronous Technology: Changing Your Modeling Approach for Better Designs
Download our new eBook to learn best practices on the benefits of synchronous technology.
The simplicity of direct modeling with the control of parametric design
Solid Edge makes creating and editing 3D CAD (computer-aided design) models faster and easier through our unique synchronous technology – which combines the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design.
Solid Edge synchronous technology allows you to rapidly create new concept designs, easily respond to change requests, and make simultaneous updates to multiple parts within an assembly. With this design flexibility, you can eliminate cumbersome preplanning and avoid feature failures, rebuild issues, and time-consuming rework. The power of synchronous technology also allows you to treat multi-CAD data just like native files, supporting seamless collaboration with suppliers and partners.
Fast and Flexible Design Creation
With integrated 2D and 3D sketching, Solid Edge synchronous technology allows you to begin your concept designs immediately, without tedious preplanning. Solid Edge’s history-free approach to 3D CAD means that you can work directly with your design geometry, and make changes instantly.
Quick Response to Late-stage Changes
When a late-stage design change stands between you and a deadline, Solid Edge synchronous technology means that it is easy to make requested changes, even to history-based 3D CAD models. By simply updating reference dimensions, or pushing and pulling on geometry, you can quickly and easily make changes to any model, without worrying about feature failures, rebuild issues or time-consuming rework.
Editing Imported 3D CAD Data
With Solid Edge synchronous technology, importing a file from another 3D CAD system is as simple as opening it – and editing imported data is just as easy. Simply click and drag features, or add and edit dimensions “on-the-fly”, and Solid Edge will automatically make intelligent updates as if a history tree existed.
The unique power of synchronous technology allows you to easily collaborate with suppliers and partners, and treat multi-CAD data just like native files.
Improved Design Re-use from Other 3D CAD Models
With Solid Edge synchronous technology, you can easily reuse 3D design detail from other models, saving you time and effort when creating new designs. With just a simple copy and paste, Solid Edge allows you to transfer design detail from one project to another, and treats files in other CAD formats just like they were native Solid Edge files.
Simultaneous Editing of Multiple Parts
Solid Edge allows you to easily edit multiple parts in an assembly, without time-consuming history-based edits or the need to create links between parts. Synchronous technology allows you to make simultaneous changes by simply selecting and dragging the parts within an assembly.
Preparing a model for finite element analysis (FEA) is easy with Solid Edge synchronous technology, even if you don’t have extensive 3D CAD skills. Solid Edge provides easy-to-use tools for FEA simulation preparation, and it does not matter if your geometry was created in Solid Edge or another 3D CAD tool.
Using Solid Edge with synchronous technology I can actually do many more iterations now that I wasn’t able to do before. And because of that, the cost of the product comes down. The weight of the product comes down. The performance goes up. The warranty is a lot longer. Quality loves it. We love it. The profit margin loves it.
