When Solid Edge was part of Intergraph

[ Edited ]

Hi Dan, I have a question. Do you remember the days when Solid Edge was an Intergraph product? Well, that company has a range products that is used by most other CAD manufacturer in the Plant industry. It is called Isogen, Spoolgen and Orthogen. Will Solid Edge in the foreseeable future be able to work with those sub-routines?

We have an integration with Intergraph SmartPlant. You can transfer the Solid Edge 3D model to SmartPlant and incorporate into the larger plant. Then do Isogen from there.

Thank you Dan, for your reply. But isn't SmartPlant itself a 3D application? What I was suggesting was more inline with what CADWorx is doing with AutoCAD as their vehicle. Other developers such as Autodesk, Bentley and CAD-Schroer are doing it. I don't see why Solid Edge can't do the same. It would be great if it can because users may want a generic 3D package that can run this sub-routine instead of a specialised 3D application like SmartPlant.

Hi, 

 

I wan to know precisely, whether model created in Solidworx can be inputed into Solid edge? 

Re: When Solid Edge was part of Intergraph

Probably would have been better to start a new thread for this, but yes, Solid Edge can open SolidWorks models.  The delivered version of Solid Edge should be able to open any SolidWorks version released prior to the version of Solid Edge used.  Maintenance Patches might enable opening of later releases but not sure.


Thanks,
Ken

Further - not only can Solid Edge open SW parts and assemblies it can also edit and modify them. According to some of my customers Solid Edge edits SW files faster than SW can.
However Solid Edge cannot open SW draft files - you have to convert them to .dwg first.
