Technical Publications

The ability to accurately convey the precise manufacturing, installation, and maintenance procedures for your designs is critical to product performance and business success.

Work Directly with Your Solid Edge Parts and Assemblies


Solid Edge technical publications solutions are tightly integrated with Solid Edge, allowing you to work directly with your Solid Edge parts and assemblies without having to convert your CAD files. And changes to the original design are easily incorporated into existing documents, speeding the engineering change process and ensuring that published documents reflect the current design.

Quickly create detailed illustrations of your designs

Solid Edge Illustrations generates high-quality 3D PDF documents and cloud-ready illustrations from Solid Edge files and other 3D CAD formats. Use Solid Edge to capture 3D views then add features including markups and balloons before publishing. Solid Edge Illustrations provides a complete image, animation and template-based 3D PDF creation package, making it easy to create high-quality communications from your 3D models.

Integration with Teamcenter PLM software

With Siemens’ world-class product lifecycle management (PLM) solution, Teamcenter®, you can reduce the time between design and documentation. Open, save, check-in and check-out the most recent version of your design data and perform additional data management tasks within the Teamcenter client. The Teamcenter Integration for Solid Edge Technical Publications enables direct access to your design data, ensuring you’re working with the right data, every time.

Publish interactive technical documents

Solid Edge 3D Publishing is easy-to-use technical document authoring software that enables you to embed Solid Edge and other 3D CAD models directly into your documents. Solid Edge 3D Publishing includes a powerful set of tools for working with 3D CAD models, parts lists and formatted text allowing anyone to author complete printed or interactive technical documents in minutes. Perfect for creating training and work instructions, illustrated parts catalogs, service and support documentation, and product manuals.

XLIFF Language Translation

Reach a larger, global market using XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF) language translation to easily translate and localize digital documents. Available as an add-on, the Solid Edge XLIFF Language Translation module provides import/export functionally for language translation for both Solid Edge 3D Publishing and Solid Edge Illustrations.
