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. Visualize your product in a real world environment.

Generative Design

Generative design, which combines sophisticated design tools with topology optimization, accelerates the fabrication of lightweight components that are ideal for quick manufacture using today’s additive technologies. Or use Solid Edge to further refine the shape for more traditional manufacturing.

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.

Subdivision Modeling

Solid Edge features subdivision modelling tools that enable rapid conception of ideas without the requirement for professional expertise. Unlike regular surface modeling, subdivision modeling uses stylized design to model complex surface shapes quickly and accurately, all without having to leave the Solid Edge environment.

Convergent Modeling

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.

Additive Manufacturing

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

Augmented Reality

Validate digital design in a physical environment using computer-generated 3D models in real-world environments by connecting the digital environment with the physical world.

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. Synchronous technology helps design engineers design for cost, keeping product development on track and within budget.

Parasolid Inside

Solid Edge not only offers rich design solutions, but scalable solutions for simulation, manufacturing and data management as well.

The engine behind Solid Edge is Siemens Parasolid® software, the most widely used computer-aided geometric modeling kernel in the industry. Parasolid delivers 100 percent 3D model compatibility between product development applications. By enabling the creation and modification of digital 3D models, Solid Edge delivers on the Siemens commitment to provide digital transformation capabilities to its users. Digital transformation allows even the smallest organizations to leverage technology to level the playing field with large enterprises.
