Augmented Reality in Solid Edge


Augmented Reality in Solid Edge

Solid Edge brings ideas to life with visualization of design intent through incorporating augmented reality (AR) to 3D computer-aided design (CAD).

With Solid Edge Augmented Reality, access to next-generation visualization has never been easier. Our AR solution allows users to connect the digital environment with the physical world by displaying 3D CAD data models as actual products. It allows a design to be showcased in a compelling way, even before it is built, using any common smartphone or tablet. The experience can then be shared securely via the cloud using the Solid Edge Portal or viewed offline.

Manufacturers stand to realize significant benefits from AR acceptance in the marketplace. AR lets prospective buyers visualize products true-to-scale, or scaled down for larger products, anywhere, using a next-level digital prototype. This can provide confidence in a product’s intended look and feel without the product leaving the manufacturing floor. AR delivers on the promise of a digital twin, a digital model in its intended physical environment.

AR is also ideal for design reviews. An accurate representation of the product’s size/shape helps clients and colleagues understand how the product best suits its intended environment. Furthermore, thanks to the Solid Edge Portal’s ability to securely share the AR experience, these benefits can be realized at any distance. Geographically disperse teams can now better understand what their colleagues are working on and provide informed assistance. Implementation benefits include reduced time-to-market and cost, improved quality and increased productivity.

Solid Edge can also export object data translation files (OBJ files) to other augmented, virtual and mixed-reality (AR/ VR/MR) experiences through third-party systems. Widely considered to be a universal format for 3D image editing applications, an OBJ file is a standard 3D image format containing 3D coordinates, texture maps, polygonal faces and other object information.
