Does Solid Edge include 3D design capabilities?

Yes, Solid Edge is the industry-leading 3D design software and uses synchronous technology to help you accelerate product design, make revisions faster, and improve design data re-use.

Solid Edge helps you design better with faster 2D drafting, best-in-class sheet metal design, flexible part and assembly modeling, built-in photo-realistic rendering, and unmatched mobility.

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.

Is there an option for computational fluid dynamic (CFD)?

Yes, CFD is fully embedded with Solid Edge for fluid flow and thermal simulation with the option: FloEFD™ for Solid Edge®

FloEFD for Solid Edge is the only computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool that is fully embedded in Solid Edge. It enables engineers to immediately prepare and analyze their CAD model by using native Solid Edge CAD data – no translation or fluid body creation. And most importantly, its unique solver makes it possible to get accurate results fast – even for highly complex geometry.
