Design: Next generation design has arrived.

Simplify complex design and manufacturing challenges using new generative modeling, additive manufacturing and reverse engineering capabilities, all enabled by Siemens convergent modeling technology. Optimize products for weight, strength and material usage using topology optimization with generative design. 3D print parts yourself or access a network of additive manufacturing services and seamlessly integrate existing products into your development process.

Generative Design -

Supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization, generative design speeds creation of lighter components perfectly suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes.

3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing -

Solid Edge additive manufacturing solutions enable you to create world class products using the latest 3D printing and additive manufacturing techniques

Reverse Engineering -

Many teams design products utilizing components imported from other CAD systems. 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.

Convergent Modeling -

Solid Edge seamlessly combines traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions. Convergent Modeling by Siemens allows for traditional b-rep operations on digitally scanned 3D data and models born out of generative design, reducing rework while supporting modern additive manufacturing processes for complex shapes.

Solid Edge Synchronous Technology -

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.

Solid Edge Simulation: Keep things fluid with built-in flow analysis.

Simulation capabilities for Solid Edge users range from Solid Edge Simulation Express for individual parts, to Solid Edge Simulation for assembly analysis, to Femap for defining and analyzing complete systems and FloEFD for Solid Edge computational fluid dynamics (CFD). These solutions provide a scalable upgrade path for those who are required to solve more challenging engineering problems.
