Solid Edge Design
Industry-leading 3D design software
Solid Edge design software uses synchronous technology to help you accelerate product design, make revisions faster, and improve design data re-use.
With faster 2D drafting, best-in-class sheet metal design, flexible part and assembly modeling, built-in photo-realistic rendering, and unmatched mobility, Solid Edge helps you design better.
Synchronous Technology for Fast, Flexible Design
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.
Advanced Sheet Metal Design
Solid Edge provides a complete sheet metal design system with support for the entire design-through-fabrication process. Straight brake, rolled or transition type components can be created complete with flanges, holes, relief and corner options. You can validate designs for manufacturing, document the bend sequence and send flat pattern DXF files directly to production.
Assembly Creation and Management
Solid Edge makes it easy to design assemblies and manage part relationships, whether you’re dealing with a few components or hundreds of thousands of parts. Outstanding large assembly technology allows you to manage, build and view assemblies in real time, without sacrificing performance. Comprehensive digital prototyping capabilities allow you to build entire 3D digital prototypes and optimize your designs before production.
Faster 2D Drawing Production
Solid Edge contains an innovative set of capabilities for the 2D documentation process. You can quickly and easily create production-ready drafting and documentation.
Beautiful Photo-realistic Rendering
Bring your models to life with photo-realistic rendering. Solid Edge offers built-in rendering through integration with Luxion’s KeyShot technology, allowing you to create photo-realistic images and animations from within the modeling environment.
Unmatched Design Mobility
Design better – from anywhere – when you run Solid Edge 3D design software on the Microsoft Surface™ Pro. Using Solid Edge on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet gives you full access to your 3D design projects on a high-performance device, whether you’re working in a research and development (R&D) laboratory, on the shop floor, or traveling to meet with suppliers and customers.
Solid Edge delivers the cloud capabilities you need by providing easy access to professional 3D CAD across different devices, instant configuration of your CAD environment to your personal preferences, and the ability to quickly share your data across your design resources and with suppliers and customers.
