Shaping the future of product development
The Solid Edge ST10 portfolio of products from Siemens brings every aspect of your product development to the next level. It gives you the very latest in next generation design technologies, fully integrated flow analysis, the newest tools for 3D printing and more options for creating technical publications. You’ll have perfect control of design data at any scale, along with a brand new way to collaborate securely on the cloud.
Solid Edge® software advances innovation and improves design productivity by seamlessly combining traditional boundary representation (b-rep) solid models with triangular mesh models without time-consuming and error-prone conversions. With the introduction of Siemens’ Convergent Modeling™ technology in Solid Edge ST10, traditional b-rep operations can be performed on digitally scanned 3D data and models created from topology optimization. This integration reduces rework while supporting modern additive manufacturing processes for complex shapes.
Solid Edge ST10 integrates advanced topology optimization within the Solid Edge 3D modeling toolkit, helping designers to create lighter components, minimize material waste in downstream manufacturing, and also create highly customized designs well-suited for casting or high-resolution 3D printing. Obtain a reduced-mass geometric solution of a specific material optimized within a design space, accounting for permissible loads and constraints. Immediately manufacture the body via additive processes, use it as a core for mold base design, or use the Solid Edge toolkit to further refine the shape for traditional manufacturing.
Many teams design products utilizing components imported from other CAD systems. With the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, even legacy parts designed on the drawing board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without complete reconstruction. Solid Edge delivers tools that speed your reverse engineering workflows.
When exporting Solid Edge drawings to AutoCAD, mechanical symbols reference AutoCAD fonts, eliminating the need for a Solid Edge font file. Reversing drawing view creation and updates is as simple as selecting “Undo”. Background sheet geometry can be located for precise positioning of objects.
Solid Edge Flow Simulation is a fully embedded and intuitive computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis tool that provides a wide range of users with valuable insight into product behavior from the beginning of the design cycle. The tight integration between native Solid Edge geometry and simulation data makes certain that all changes are synchronized, resulting in optimized product performance and reliability earlier in the product development process.
Solid Edge ST10 enables fast publication of manufacturing and assembly instructions, training manuals, spec sheets and more. Solid Edge llustrations software creates illustration sets directly from Solid Edge geometry and product and manufacturing (PMI) annotations, while Solid Edge Documentation generates customizable, multi-page documents. The interoperability between these tools allows seamless creation of step-by-step process instructions from exploded views and multiple product configurations ‒ even permitting use of multiple 3D models in a single document. Edits to Solid Edge models can automatically propagate to the publications.
Built-in data management
Built-in data management capabilities are enhanced with even easier setup and administration, and improvements in the user interface help speed completion of everyday tasks and reduce errors in the design process. Notification of the availability of newer revisions, improved tools to find and replace duplicate files, and automatic copying of drawings during “Save As” operations are just of few of the many enhancements.
Teamcenter integration for Solid Edge
More work processes are now supported for Solid Edge customers using Teamcenter® software. Users can work offline and then synchronize the changes they have made to Teamcenter, and a new “Save New to Existing” command allows users to associate new Solid Edge files with existing Teamcenter items. Classification of parts is supported through the embedded Active Workspace interface. Many user interface improvements including the ability to directly open associated draft files, validation of user input before submitting data and docking panes in the “Open File” dialog further improve efficiency and reduce the possibility of errors. New bundles of Solid Edge with Teamcenter provide great value for customers moving towards becoming a digital enterprise.
Solid Edge Portal
The Solid Edge Portal is a new way for manufacturers to securely collaborate around their design projects, both internally and externally. Upload your CAD files to cloud-based project folders, and view these files using any browser. Invite users from other departments or from external organizations including suppliers and customers to collaborate with you.
