Solid Edge

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.

Reference customers:

“We are particularly satisfied with the functions of synchronous modeling for easy editing without the need to edit sketches every time.”

Gustav Kågesson, Design Engineer, NP Innovation

“I use synchronous to make quick design changes.”

Oscar Jonasson, Design Engineer, EMTW

The benefits of generative design range from lighter components to minimal downstream manufacturing material waste. Also, highly customized complex shapes can result, perfect for casting or today’s high-resolution additive manufacturing processes. With generative design, you can create the optimum design between weight and strength, tailored for desired manufacturing processes.

Solid Edge simulation – put your product to the test

Simulate harsh conditions, put your product to test for heat transfer and fluid flows with Simulation for Solid Edge or FloEFD for Solid Edge.

Solid Edge Simulation is built-in finite element analysis (FEA), allowing design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment. Based on proven Femap finite element modeling and NX Nastran solver technology, Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, which lowers your material and testing costs, and saves design time.

Add on to Solid Edge Foundation or Classic. Included in Premium.

Feature based machining in Solid Edge CAM Pro uses a knowledge engine to identify and create NC machining strategies for prismatic features. Unlike other CAM systems, Solid Edge CAM Pro can be used as a complete machining kit, or as a companion for other types of machining. Additionally, the operations created are true machining operations that can be modified as needed by NC programmers.

Learn more on Siemens Digital Industries website

Solid Edge CAM Pro offers advanced machining capabilities such as adaptive and feature-based machining, smart pencil milling, and enhanced roughing routines. Toolpaths are associative to the Solid Edge parts and assemblies so the toolpaths can be quickly updated to incorporate any design changes.

Integrated machine tool simulation in Solid Edge CAM Pro helps you avoid tying up a machine in unproductive prove-outs. Machine simulation CAM Express provides accurate machine simulation by using the actual G-codes for simulation rather than the internal toolpath representation.

Learn more on Siemens Digital Industries website

The tool supports a full range of turning tool paths, including teach-mode and other manual methods for fine control. Also available are outside and inside diameter programming for turning centers and vertical turret lathes. Face, turn, bore, and groove operations are supported for roughing and finishing cuts.
