I am looking to get Solid Edge ST10 as a student edition. I would like to utilize the Generative Design tools recently released. The version I recieved as a student edition is ST9. Great software, but no Generative Tools.
If anybody can help me get this, it would be greatly appreciated.
ST10 has been formally announced for marketing purposes but the software has not been RTM just yet. Once they complete all the quality checks, etc we should expect to see ST10 commercial release within the next few weeks availible for download.
I do not know how long after commercial release the Student version is made availible... or if it is at the same time...
We all eagerly await... Stay tuned!!!
Be aware that the Generative Design tool is an add-on product, so it may not be part of the Student Edition.
It's worth noting that you can still use generative design on the paid-for Classic and Premium licenses, the only thing you can't do is actually use it - you have to buy an add-on to be able to export it as a model.
You will, however, be able to use it as a visual aid for your designs.
I'd imagine this is what the student version will also use; remembering when I had the student edition, you get most of the Premium features included, you just can't open your files in a commercial version of SE, and you get a watermark on your drafts, which is the trade-off.
We will find out soon, I imagine the student version will be released shortly after the commercial one - stay tuned!
ST10 student edition has just been released and is available for download on the student website
