Solid Edge Shape Search

Siemens Digitalization logo


There’s no need to reinvent the wheel with Solid Edge® software Shape Search, which is a 3D search engine that identifies similar parts based on geometry. This allows designers to reuse existing parts and avoid reinventing new ones.

Considering the costs associated with design, documentation, testing, manufacturing or procurement and allocation of space on the shop floor, adding new, unnecessary parts can be expensive. Resources are often wasted during product development, when new parts are needlessly created and existing parts could be used.
