Solid Edge 2019 Highlights and News
Solid Edge Cam Pro (Computer Aided Manufacturing)
Build world class products accurately and efficiently using the latest manufacturing techniques.
Solid Edge manufacturing solutions help manufacturers to define and execute a wide range of traditional and new manufacturing processes including CNC machining, nesting, cutting, bending, welding, assembling and additive manufacturing.
These software solutions work directly on your Solid Edge part, sheet metal and assembly models ensuring accurate and efficient manufacturing processes, and the manufacturing instructions created using these solutions can be easily updated to reflect changes in the underlying design.
Introducing Solid Edge Electrical
Solid edge Electrical consists of Solid Edge Wiring Design and Solid Edge Harness Design. Solid Edge Electrical provides direct data exchange with Solid Edge, which is very helpful in keeping harness design data in sync.
Solid Edge Wiring Design and Solid Edge Harness Design provide benefits such as wiring diagram creation, electrical design validation, and rapid graphical layout of harness designs.
Solid Edge Flow Simulation
Solid Edge 2019 introduces Solid Edge flow simulation — FloEFD for Solid Edge — which integrates industry standard computational fluid dynamics (CFD) directly into your design process.
FloEFD is a full-featured 3D computational fluid dynamics analysis solution built into major MCAD systems including Solid Edge. FloEFD enables users to move CFD simulation early into the design process where it can help engineers examine trends and dismiss less desirable design options.
FloEFD for Solid Edge is the only powerful computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool that is fully embedded into Solid Edge. It enables design engineers to frontload CFD by moving simulation early into the design process where it is more cost effective to identify and fix problems and enhance productivity by x2 to x40.
1. Embedded in Solid Edge – one interface, one model
2. Intuitive and easy-to-use
3. Fast and has robust convergence criteria even for highly complex geometry
4. Accurate due to use of intelligent technology
Experience streamlined workflows, faster results, and increased productivity with FloEFD.
Solid Edge Portal
It is a cloud-based application that allows you to securely share your designs with internal and external collaborators around the world.
Solid Edge Portal is:
• Browser-based access for viewing CAD files on your phone, tablet, Chromebook, Mac, PC and more
• Share files with your shop floor, customers or partners
• Explore models with viewing tools: rotate and pan, section, and automatic assembly explode
• Capture feedback with mark up
Secure sharing and collaboration
• Secure password-based access
• Encryption on upload and download
• Access control allows you to define download or view-only
Solid Edge Requirements Management
Solid Edge Requirements Management is a powerful solution with many project management tools and features that save time and help to reduce costly mistakes. Solid Edge Requirements Management offers instant access to
product requirements, ID task tagging, interactive workflows and easy communication with management and executives. Requirements Management administrators and project managers can provide specific permissions like commenting and approval rights to further manage project interactions. Solid Edge Requirements Management also offers security features such as role- and credential-based authentication. These features provide strict access guidelines for an optimal project workflow.
• Organise inputs for mechanical design
• Easily assess design and requirements changes
• Demonstrate contract fulfilment
• Meet compliance and quality standards
Cost Effective Tools
Design for Cost.
For manufacturing companies, the most important consideration after product innovation and quality is how costs will affect their ability to compete in the global marketplace. Developing detailed cost knowledge and maximum transparency in the design phase is indispensable for achieving excellent product cost management.
Solid Edge 2019 introduces a new tool to assist you with designing your sheet metal parts in the most cost effective way possible. Solid Edge users with a Premium or Classic license can use commands in the Design for Cost docking window to analyse the geometry of a Solid Edge sheet metal part (.psm) and estimate the cost to manufacture the item.
From now, you will be more efficient with your quotation preparation process.
Generative design brings topology optimization to Solid Edge, enabling designers to define material, design space, permissible loads and constraints and a target weight—while Solid Edge takes care of the rest. Solid Edge automatically computes a geometric solution that can be immediately manufactured on 3D printers or further refined for traditional manufacturing. This leads to cost savings not just from reduced weight and materials, but also in terms of time saved for the design engineer.
Modular Plant Design
Solid Edge P&ID Design provides 2D flow diagram and symbol support for P&ID creation, supporting ANSI/ISA, DIN, and EN ISO standards to meet strict governing requirements, linked 3D piping and Isogen® output, ensuring that your products are designed right—the first time, and every time.
Solid Edge Piping Design provides automated 3D piping design with comprehensive 3D part libraries and fully automated isometric drawing output for plant design. This solution includes fully automated isometric drawing output via PCF format using integrated ISOGEN® functionality. Tubes and hoses of the same length in different assemblies—even if they are flexed differently—maintain the same BOM number, reducing erroneous manufacturing and ordering downstream. Solid Edge Piping Design also supports routing through parts, allowing faster packaging design, and flexible tube and hose design with a fixed length option.
Solid Edge Technical Publications
The ability to clearly communicate the correct manufacturing, installation and maintenance procedures for your designs is essential to the performance of your products and the success of your business. Using Solid Edge technical publications solutions, your designers can quickly create many types of technical documents—from simple illustrations for end user manuals to interactive 3D technical documents for manufacturing and service. You can reduce the need for specialist technical authors or external services and produce top quality documents in-house.
