Solid Edge Advanced Techniques

Three Days Class

Solid Edge Advanced Techniques course is offered online or at the PROLIM PLM campus in Cincinnati, Ohio.

This course focuses on taking the novice-to-intermediate Solid Edge user to a higher level of productivity through the introduction of advanced modeling and assembly techniques. It will cover fundamental skills and concepts central to the use of Solid Edge and proper utilization of the process-specific workflows and modeling tools to create a cast, machined, sheet metal, and plastic parts.


Day 1

  • Lesson 1: Breakdown of a part
  • Lesson 2: Advanced Part Modeling (Sweeps, Lofts, Surfaces)
  • Lesson 3: Streamlining the Design (Variable Table, Family of Parts, Part Copies)

Day 2

  • Lesson 4: Sheet Metal Basics Review/Advanced Sheet Metal Features
  • Lesson 5: Basic Assembly Relationships/Designing in the Assembly
  • Lesson 6: Virtual Components

Day 3

  • Lesson 7: Working with Assemblies (Adjustable Assemblies, Alternate Assemblies, Restructuring, Fastener Systems)
  • Lesson 8: Systems Libraries
  • Lesson 9: Design Verification (Motion, Sensors)
  • Lesson 10: Rendering & Animation
  • Lesson 11: Data Management (Revision Manager, View & Markup)
  • Lesson 12: XpressRoute (Tubing and Piping)
Cancellation Policy

Attendee must cancel 10 business days prior to the class start date in order to receive a full refund. Cancellation requests that are received 5-10 business days prior to the class start date will result in a credit towards a future scheduled training within 12 months of the original course. Cancellations made 4 or less business days prior to the training start date or failure to appear will result in forfeiture of the course fee or an additional fee of $250 will be charged to attend a future training class within 12 months of original training.

Students registered for classes that have 2 or fewer attendees may be required to join the next scheduled class. Students will be notified of this situation a few days in advance.

Rescheduling is allowed on a one time basis only. If you do not attend within 12 months of the original training date, the entire course fee will be forfeited.

Course Materials

Solid Edge Advanced Techniques Student Guides (Volumes 1 and 2) and a data set on USB Drive.


Course Completion

Students will learn how to effectively use the process-specific workflows and modeling tools that allow them to easily create a cast, machined, sheet metal, and plastic parts. Students will learn the finer points of profile/sketch creation, learn how to classify and breakdown apart, and then apply the necessary workflow within Solid Edge to aid in efficiently modeling the part. In addition, students will learn how to effectively use the process-specific workflows that correspond to how assemblies are created and modified in Solid Edge. This process-specific approach simulates the actual assembly creation process. These techniques will enhance a user’s knowledge of Solid Edge and show how correct usage of the workflows of both Top-Down and Bottom-Up, or a combination of both methods, produces a reduction in the design cycle time.
