Siemens PLM Software (Plano, TX) announced Solid Edge software with synchronous technology is shipping to customers worldwide and will ship nine additional languages throughout September. Solid Edge with synchronous technology is the core CAD component of the Velocity Series portfolio and incorporates Siemens PLM Software’s new history-free, feature-based design technology.
Solid Edge with synchronous technology includes key new features offering fast, flexible design to speed innovation, including an interactive design paradigm, faster editing tools, native multi-CAD features, and 2D/3D workflow integration. Plus, a new interaction paradigm speeds innovation by enabling users to develop 3D models without any pre-planning — giving users up to a 100 times faster design experience.
Other new tools increase the speed and flexibility of design changes, so users can perform engineering change orders (ECOs) in seconds instead of hours. And users can edit multi-CAD data as native: All tools in Solid Edge can be used on imported CAD data in the same manner as native models, letting users make changes faster than their supplier.
The company adds that users can leverage 3D power with 2D simplicity — familiar 2D workflows within the 3D user interaction paradigm enable users to become experts quickly.
