New release of Solid Edge lets you see things that aren’t really there
Siemens used the occasion of Realize LIVE to release a new version of its Solid Edge CAD program. The new release incorporated enhancements targeting small and medium-sized manufacturing companies. Features that got top billing included augmented reality and validation tools integrated for conducting motion and vibration simulation. A Model Based Definition facility lets engineers define parts, assemblies and manufacturing instructions digitally from a 3D model. 2D nesting capabilities have also been added to optimize cutting patterns, reduce waste and costs, and accelerate manufacturing processes.
