system that uses synchronous technology and enhanced support for re-use of imported geometry to accelerate the development and editing of the prototype.
Siemens PLM Software Division Department of Siemens Industry Automation German company Siemens AG - one of the leading suppliers of software and services for product lifecycle management (PLM). The company has six million licensed seats, more than 59,000 companies worldwide. The head office is located in g.Plano, Texas.
Initially, the system Solid Edge was developed by Intergraph, based on the geometric kernel ACIS. In 1995 he was released the first version of Solid Edge V1. Design tools, sheet metal parts were first introduced in October 1997 in version 3.5. After the takeover by UGS in 1998, the system Solid Edge, starting with version 5.0, was transferred to the nucleus Parasolid. Since September 2006, the company also offers a freeware product for creating 2D documentation - Solid Edge 2D Drafting. In 2007, concern Siemens acquired UGS, from this point the system develops and is maintained by Siemens PLM Software. In 2008 was released Solid Edge with synchronous technology support. May 26, 2009 Siemens PLM Software announced the release of Solid Edge with synchronous technology.
- widely used in industrial system that combines the functions of process control design with the proper functions of the CAD. Solid Edge provides users with scalable solutions for managing design data and collaboration tools. Solid Edge Modeling tools allow you to create different projects - from individual components to assemblies, consisting of thousands of components. Solid Edge is used in designing a wide range of products for various industries: machine building, aviation, shipbuilding, oil refining, production of consumer goods, etc. Among the clients of such companies as: Schatti AG, Summit Tool Design, Aleksin plant heavy industrial valves, Ural Optical and Mechanical Plant, Akvatis and many others.
An overview of innovations in the Siemens Solid Edge ST3: Solid Edge
is a key component of the portfolio Velocity Series *, and has excellent tools for modeling parts and assemblies, design drawings, transparent data management, built-in finite element analysis, which helps to cope with the growing complexity of future product
New version of
Solid Edge ST3
offers enhanced functionality based on synchronous technology, which greatly accelerates the process of product design, easy modification, importation and use of data created in different CAD systems. The latest version includes improvements in the finite element analysis, data management, design, as well as more thousands of changes to specific users.
Implementing the concept of synchronous technology company Siemens PLM Software has expanded the possibility of using synchronous technology throughout the system. Furthermore implemented in previous versions support for modeling components and sheet metal, the synchronous model can be applied directly to the assembly - for example, when designing pipelines, farms, wiring and other products. First introduced the associativity between synchronous parts, which allows the user to create and modify his plan before, during or at the end of the process of designing an assembly.
Solid Edge ST3 provides an opportunity to work with both synchronous and conventional (ordered in the tree construction) design elements in a single integrated design environment. Users can use synchronous design elements to accelerate the process of designing and flexible editing models, and elements of the tree building - for design of cast parts and components, obtained by machining. Elements of the tree construction in the existing models can be selectively converted into synchronous, which gives the designer greater flexibility and ease of use of the system.
Since the number of enterprises making the transition from other 3D systems to the Solid Edge and take advantage of synchronous technology is growing, there was the possibility of merging with the existing 2D drawings to 3D models - another way to improve performance. Technological dimensions in 2D drawings can now be automatically transferred to the relevant imported 3D model. Obtained as a result of "manufacturing* 3D dimensions can be directly edited and imported 3D model is changed simultaneously by synchronous technology.
Solid Edge ST3
has an application for finite element analysis, including new types of loads - torque and load in a cylindrical support user-defined limits, as well as new ways of connecting parts in the assembly, such as bolted connections and joints for sheet metal edges. A tool to facilitate modeling allows you to quickly calculate the results, and advanced visualization tools - see the model from the inside. The model can be adjusted as with synchronous technology, and with the use of wood construction. Solid Edge provides the control models of parts and assemblies in the early stages of design, which reduces time-to-market and cost of prototyping.
In Solid Edge ST3
- thousands of specific improvements to customers, which further increases the impact of this product at all stages of product design. New features have appeared in various modules, including the simulation of sheet metal, pipes and trusses, build management tools and drafting. Improvements in the design environment sheet metal includes new types of closure angles, element symbols etched details and a different geometry, as well as technological elements in the unfolding of sheet parts such as shipping ears. Solid Edge continues to raise the bar in the area of the drawings, in which you can now transfer all the technological dimensions and notations indicate parts in the assembly, and even provide details of the different colors of lines in the drawing, by borrowing them from the 3D model. New "international" drawings allow you to use different character sets in different languages in a single drawing or a balloon. A simplified user interface includes a fully customizable radial menu, which reduces the number of mouse movement. Transparent dialogue management design elements and details, as well as dialogues teams reduced size provide the largest area of graphic workspace.
