Solid Edge new Version
15/06/2009 - Edge Software introduces Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology 2. Nre enhancements include Synchronized Part & Assembly modelling, Sheet Metal, FEA Simulation and Insight SharePoint.
Latest Version of Solid Edge Synchronous Technology 2 announced.
10th June 2009 Edge Software today announces Solid Edge® software with Synchronous Technology 2.
This release is the second version of Solid Edge to incorporate Siemens PLM Software’s breakthrough synchronous technology, the first history-free, feature-based modeling capability that serves as a fundamental tool in helping customers react to the market faster.
Solid Edge is a core component of the Velocity Series™ portfolio and combines the speed and flexibility of direct modeling with the precise control of dimension-driven design. The latest release extends synchronous technology deeper in the product with improved part and assembly modeling as well as a new sheet metal application.
“The Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology 2 release showcases the expansion of Siemens PLM Software’s groundbreaking synchronous technology into additional part and assembly modeling areas, including intelligent sheet metal design," said Dr. Ken Versprille, PLM Research Director, CPDA. "In our in-depth review done last year, we positioned synchronous technology as a major advance in solids modeling and predicted its positive impact on the industry. This latest release proves us correct based on the strength and robustness it demonstrates as a modeling approach. End user interviews attest to the benefits they have achieved in reducing their design cycle times. The modeling advancements found in Solid Edge, matched with the introduction of a new mid-range FEA application, Solid Edge Simulation, and continued implementation of Solid Edge’s Insight data management tool atop the latest in Microsoft’s SharePoint, offers a win-win scenario for both Solid Edge and its users.
Synchronized Part and Assembly Modeling
The new release of Solid Edge extends synchronous technology within core part and assembly modeling for complex feature creation and advanced sketch editing tools that reduce overall design time. To improve 2D to 3D data migration, Solid Edge turns 2D dimensions from imported drawings into 3D driving dimensions during model creation, so users can edit 3D designs based on the intent from 2D. In addition, Live Sections can be used to simplify 3D model changes by letting users edit 2D cross sections cut through any part of a 3D model, and update the 3D model in real-time.
New Sheet Metal Design Application
Solid Edge now applies synchronous technology to sheet metal design, creating a feature-based, history-free 3D design application for modeling straight brake sheet metal parts.
Synchronous technology brings new levels of productivity to the sheet metal environment so users can create models with less pre-planning, make changes with unbounded flexibility, and reuse and edit supplier data more effectively.
New Solid Edge Simulation for FEA
Solid Edge Simulation is a new optional analysis tool embedded into the CAD system that allows design validation of parts and assemblies earlier in the product development process for quicker time to market and reduced physical prototyping costs. It is based on proven Femap® software finite element modeling and NX™ Nastran® solver technology built into the Solid Edge user interface. It is easy for designers and engineers to use and promotes increased use of simulation within Solid Edge, fostering design innovation. Solid Edge Simulation also leverages synchronous technology to ease simulation model preparation and speed design refinements.
“These economic times force engineers to do more by themselves than ever before," said Barry Bevis Director of Edge Software. “By embedding FEA into Solid Edge, more designs can be simulated in less time with minimal need to outsource analysis. This allows companies to respond to their customers faster with improved quality and lower costs."
Solid Edge with Insight for Design Data Management with Microsoft SharePoint
Solid Edge now provides key enhancements to improve the embedded Insight™ design data management application, a key element of the Velocity Series strategy for scalable PDM, which also includes the Teamcenter® Express platform.
Solid Edge with Insight leverages the latest Microsoft SharePoint® platform for improved collaboration, faster release workflows and enhanced security capabilities offered by Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS). Solid Edge with Insight using the first version of SharePoint was introduced to the market in 2001 and today has more than 1000 customers.
