Next generation design is here today
The Complete PLM Portfolio
Optimize products for minimal mass with goal driven generative design, and further modify the components using reverse engineering. Easily make changes using synchronous technology. Finalize your parts by tapping into additive manufacturing processes- either 3D print them yourself or access an online network of services.
Supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization, generative design speeds creation of lighter components perfectly suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes. Or use Solid Edge to further refine the shape for more traditional manufacturing.
Solid Edge allows you to incorporate mesh models into the design workflow to create real designs. You can also seamlessly combine traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions.
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.
Solid Edge additive manufacturing solutions enable you to create world class products using the latest 3D printing and additive manufacturing techniques.
3D Reverse Engineering
With the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, even legacy parts designed on the drawing board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without complete reconstruction. Solid Edge allows you to scan, edit, and produce products faster with powerful reverse engineering tools and capabilities.
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. Synchronous technology helps design engineers design for cost, keeping product development on track and within budget.
Solid Edge Wiring Design delivers wiring design and simulation tools for the rapid creation and verification of electrical systems. Solid Edge Harness Design allows rapid and intuitive harness and formboard design with automated part selection, design verification, and manufacturing report generation. Solid Edge PCB Design provides schematic capture and PCB layout, including sketch routing, hierarchical 2D/3D planning and placement and ECAD-MCAD collaboration. And Solid Edge Electrical Routing efficiently creates, routes, and organizes wires, cables, and bundles.
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.
