What is Solid Edge Design?
Solid Edge is a 3D design system that uses synchronous technology to accelerate design, make revisions faster, and enable better reuse. With 2D drafting, 3D part and assembly modeling, Solid Edge helps companies uniquely design better.
Does Solid Edge Include 2D technology?
Yes, You will have faster drafting features that include an innovative set of capabilities for the 2D documentation process.
What is Solid Edge’s Synchronous Technology?
Solid Edge’s history-free approach to 3D CAD means that you can work directly with your design geometry, and make changes instantly. Even while taking advantage of the design flexibility of direct modeling, synchronous technology also allows you to maintain control with organized feature trees where needed.
Can I bring in designs from other CAD tools? Will I be able to use Synchronous Technology?
Yes, Importing a file from another 3D CAD system is as simple as opening it. You will be able to use synchronous technology on the files you import into Solid Edge.
Can I simulate my parts in Solid Edge?
Yes, Solid Edge includes analysis tools for part assembly/validation, statics, modal, buckling, heat transfer, and more.
Does Solid Edge include any manufacturing capabilities?
