Solid Edge


Solid Edge training delivers the knowledge and skills to use Solid Edge, a 3D CAD software, for solid modeling, assembly modeling along with drafting and designing. Participants learn all from concept to completion including benefits of ordered and synchronous commands. Sheet metal designing is also covered to teach design and change production level parts and assemblies.

On the completion of the training, the students will be able to:

  • Handle interface, file management, and design workflow
  • Use dimension and annotation tools
  • Construct the models using pre-synchronous tools
  • Develop fully synchronous models and assemblies
  • Work on production level sheet metal design
  • Efficiently use assembly design tools and document all files
  • Differentiate between traditional and synchronous design
  • Implement assembly models and relationship between them
  • Work with Solid Edge Embedded Client

1) Synchronous Technology
It’s pretty much an unwritten rule that you can’t talk about Solid Edge without at least mentioning synchronous. Unique to Siemens, synchronous technology combines the benefits of direct modeling and parametric design into one solution. You can work directly with design geometry and make changes instantly, while still maintaining control through an organized feature tree. This makes it easier to implement late stage design changes, modify imported 3D CAD, and edit multiple assemblies simultaneously – just to name a few common design challenges this technology helps to solve.

2) Generative Design
Generative design makes this possible. With the integration of topology optimization into the Solid Edge 3D modeling toolkit, designers are able to create optimized product designs from requirements and constraints, rather than creating geometry first and then validating the design. In this way, you can explore more design options to find the optimal design rather than just the first one to meet minimum requirements. This is especially helpful to create lighter components, minimize material waste in downstream manufacturing, and customize designs for casting or high-res 3D printing.

3) Reverse Engineering
Thanks to the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, scanning is now the easy part of reverse engineering. Even legacy parts that were first designed on a drafting board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without requiring you to completely reconstruct them. We love Solid Edge because it has tools to speed up the reverse engineering process and make our lives easier! From mesh cleanup to surface extraction, you can do it all better with Solid Edge.

4) Convergent Modeling
The thing about these new and expanding design technologies—generative, reverse engineering and additive— is that they are all mesh-based, meaning their geometry is comprised of tiny triangles stitched together to form a mesh. These are also known as facets. The thing about mesh or facet data is that it doesn’t play well with the boundary representation or b-rep data of traditional solid models, meaning designers would typically have to convert the data or perform a lengthy surfacing process to get it to a workable state. A great reason to love Solid Edge is that convergent modeling technology seamlessly combines the two, so you can perform feature modeling on a mesh model and it behaves just like regular solid modeling.

5) Embedded CFD for flow analysis
Getting valuable insight about a product’s behavior from the beginning of the design cycle is a game changer. It helps you to create better products, while requiring less time and iterations than would otherwise be necessary to achieve optimal product performance. Solid Edge Flow Simulation is a fully embedded and intuitive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool that provides some much needed insight into product performance. Because the tool tightly integrates native Solid Edge geometry and simulation data, all changes are synchronized, resulting in reliable, optimized products.
