Additive Manufacturing Solutions

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

From design for manufacture using additive techniques


Solid Edge enables you to fully exploit additive manufacturing, whether you are producing solitary prototypes or vast batches of components. Tools that support your end-to-end workflow, from design-for-manufacture using additive techniques, to preparing and outputting your designs to 3D printing hardware and services.

Generative design for optimized models

The creation of lightweight components that are perfect for immediate manufacturing utilising additive techniques employing generative design combines sophisticated design tools with topology optimization.

Preparation of geometry for additive techniques

Without laborious and error-prone conversions, Solid Edge seamlessly combines traditional “b-rep” solid models with triangular mesh models, reducing the need for rework and complementing modern additive manufacturing techniques for intricate forms.

Direct output of models to your 3D printer

Using the 3D Print command, Solid Edge supports sending your part models to 3D printers. You can transmit your parts directly to the Microsoft 3D Builder app or export them in the.stl and.3MF formats. You can print internally using automated print preparation that includes colour printing.
