Many of you are extending Solid Edge to do all kinds of wonderful things. Solid Edge has a rich set of integration tools for doing everything from automating mundane tasks to embedding entire CAM systems into the product.
Most have been using Jason Newell’s software development community for years. Others have accessed the GTAC forums. We want to take this to the next level. Of course, you can’t think of the “Solid Edge API” without also thinking of Jason Newell. He’ll be taking a primary role in helping to make this community useful.
For those of you getting started, we have inlcuded online documentation, added some useful content from our Solid Edge University Developer day events, and pre-populated the knowledge base. Jason also jumped though some hoops (programically speaking) to bring over many of the questions, answers and other posts in his forum. No doubt, we missed some things so please ask questions and give kudo’s to any community members that provides you with valuable information.
For those of you that are already developing on top of Solid Edge, I hope you can help Jason and those of us at Siemens PLM grow this community and contribute useful content. While we have some internal developers that will be participating, most do not use Solid Edge’s public API. The real experts are in the community.
Finally, thanks goes to Jason and Matt Lombard for helping us get to this point. They have me excited to go write my own Solid Edge App
