Solid Edge Tip of the Week – September 26
Attention all Solid Edge customers! Starting with Solid Edge ST7, all software will be 64 bit only. If you have plans to upgrade please make sure that all your machines are compatible with the software.
Also, new with ST7, Keyshot rendering software is now installed with Solid Edge and replaces the ST6 Advanced Rendering. This is a part of the software and does not cost any additional money.
Solid Edge ST7 also supports running on the Microsoft Surface Pro tablet. In addition to being supported on the Windows 8.1 operating system, Solid Edge has built in capability that allows zooming with finger gestures as well as selection with stylus gestures. This is supported in both 2D and 3D environments.
If you load ST7 on a machine with Windows 8.1, you will have access to a new “Print using Microsoft 3D Builder” command on the application menu. This is available in the part, sheet metal, or assembly environments. To be able to use this command you must have the Microsoft 3D Builder application installed which can be found at the link below:
