whats new solid edge 2019 1.jpg

The naming convention is not all that’s new in Solid Edge 2019—far from it, in fact! In this post, we’ll be taking a look at what you can expect including all of the new solutions available to you with this release. We are proud and excited to share this news with you as we consider Solid Edge 2019 to be the best yet!

 

Solid Edge 2019 brings you the very latest in next generation product development. Best in class electrical and PCB design. Fully integrated simulation analysis. The latest tools in subtractive and additive manufacturing. Scalable data management, including requirements management. And free secure cloud-based collaboration tools.

 

We’ll be giving a high level overview of what’s new in each area today, followed by posts over the coming months with details on each enhancement & what it means for you!

 

Mechanical Design: Next generation design - today.

 

  • New capabilities in convergent modeling allow engineers to incorporate mesh models into their design workflow, creating real designs, not just inspirational shapes.
  • Mesh smoothing and surfacing tools reduce time spent scanning and editing in reverse engineering.
  • New manufacturing constraints support milling, casting or molding of generative designs, in addition to 3D printing, all optimized to weight and strength requirements
  • New design for cost capabilities keep product development on track and within budget.
  • All new capabilities for plant design:
  • Solid Edge P&ID Design: 2D flow diagram and symbol support for P&ID creation supports strict governing requirements for plant design.
  • Solid Edge Piping Design: Automated 3D piping design with comprehensive 3D part libraries and fully automated isometric drawing output for plant design.
  • Continued customer driven enhancements such as auto-simplify, automatic volume finder for containers, and improved broken drawing views—just to name a few!—provide savings that improve time to market.what's new solid edge 2019 2.jpg

 

Electrical Design: The best electrical design tools join the Solid Edge family.

  • Solid Edge Wiring Design delivers wiring design and simulation tools for the rapid creation and verification of electrical systems allow design teams to overcome electro-mechanical design challenges earlier in the design cycle.
  • Solid Edge Harness Design enables rapid and intuitive harness and formboard design tools with automated part selection, design verification, and manufacturing report generation allow engineers to quickly and confidently bring products to market.
  • Solid Edge PCB Design provides schematic capture and PCB layout tools, including sketch routing, hierarchical 2D/3D planning and placement, and ECAD/MCAD collaboration simplify the complex task of printed circuit board design.
  • Solid Edge Electrical Routing efficiently creates, routes, and organizes wires, cables, and bundles. Links to Solid Edge Wiring and Harness Design tools allows electro-mechanical design teams to create complete and accurate digital mockups containing both mechanical and electrical components, removing the need to expensive physical prototypes.

Simulation: Complex design validation just got easier.

  • Enhanced structural and thermal simulation, including transient heat transfer.
  • Time-based history analysis enables simulation of thermal and cooling performance.
  • Free surface flow simulation, lighting and radiation capabilities allow digital “what if” analysis.
  • The ability to display simulation results on geometry faces increases engineering judgment
  • Handle large simulation challenges with the ability to implement full 64 bit code of the structural solver
  • The ability to fine tune the criteria of mesh quality check makes for better guidance to the mesh accuracy of a part

Manufacturing: Bring your ideas to life, in full color.

  • Solid Edge CAM Pro – a comprehensive, highly flexible system that uses the latest machining technology to efficiently program your CNC machine tools, from simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining.
    • Associative toolpaths for parts and assemblies speed design changes and updates.
    • Support for automated print preparation and color printing for additive manufacturing directly to your printer.
  • 3D printing as a service lets you compare price and delivery options to make your ideas a reality.

Technical Publications: Clear communication. Clearly better.

  • Quickly create and publish detailed illustrations of your designs using Model Based Definition to define and organize 3D annotations.
  • Publish interactive digital documents for manufacturing, installation, and maintenance work instruction packages.
  • Associative updates keep documents in sync when product designs change.
  • Enhanced design to publication integration enable you to launch Technical Publication apps directly from within the Solid Edge Design toolwhat's new solid edge 2019 6.jpg

     

Data Management: Take control of your data, including your requirements.

  • Solid Edge Requirements Management gives complete traceability, so you can more easily meet product design requirements and compliance standards.
  • Continual updates to Solid Edge data management result in less time spent on tedious data management tasks.
  • Improved search and data entry provide quick and easy access to design data.
  • Teamcenter integration now provides intelligent search and reuse of any CAD systems design data.
  • The new shape search capability using Siemens Geolus® technology enables the reuse of existing parts in new designs.

 

Solid Edge Portal: Make your mark with free cloud-based collaboration.

  • Online CAD management, viewing, and collaboration.
  • Browser-based access for viewing and markup of CAD files on any device.
  • Secure, controlled sharing of project documents and CAD files.
