Siemens Solid Edge is a comprehensive 2D/3D CAD system for creating, documenting and managing 3D digital prototypes. It has tailored commands and workflows to accelerate design within specific industries. Accurate fit and function of parts is ensured by designing, analysing and modifying them within the Assembly Model.

Solid Edge users regularly create massive assemblies, often with more than 100,000 parts. With lightweight and simplified part representations, and powerful selection and display tools, Solid Edge makes it easy to work with large assemblies.

You can build and visualize digital designs, and minimize the need for costly physical prototypes.


The demand to design more innovative products that meet increasing customer needs, but are simpler to use, cheaper to manufacture, meet regulations and combat your competition has never been so critical. Dan Staples will illustrate how to welcome product development complexity with a toolset that balances breadth and depth, and keeps productivity the priority.


Frames and Welding



Comprehensive Digital Prototyping

Top-down and bottom-up modelling techniques are enabled by Solid Edge’s assembly-centric design environment. The original design intent is captured and maintained throughout the design process.


Conceptual Mechanisms






Simulation and Optimization



Electrical Routing



Key Features

Ease of Adoption

Solid Edge has minimal dialog boxes, predicts user intent, and makes recommendations based on your cursor position and selected features. The Smartstep ribbon bar guides you through a logical sequence and filters out what can be taken for granted. Unparalleled ease of use means you spend less time fighting the CAD system and more time on your designs.

Speed up the design process with Synchronous Technology

You no longer have to choose between constraint-driven or history-free modelling. Enjoy the freedom of reusing models, and seamlessly use data from multiple CAD systems.

Flexible modelling in Solid Edge ST8

Solid Edge enables you to change your designs easily and quickly so that you can adapt to changes as and when they happen.


Industry leading sheet metal design

Solid Edge is known as the best sheet metal designer, but add in synchronous technology and sheet metal design has never been so easy.


Practical evolution from 2D to 3D

Solid Edge’s production proven 2D drafting helps you get the job done today, while moving to 3D at your own pace and with less expense. Text boxes can contain bullets and numbering for flexible drawing production.

  • Complete digital prototyping
  • Support for massive assembly
  • Superior sheet metal tools.


ROI of Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology

How can changing your modeling paradigm really impact your bottom line? Can something as simple as improving drawing creation increase your return on investment (ROI)? For most users, there’s a bigger impact than they think. In this eBook, we examine the ROI of Solid Edge based on feedback from real Solid Edge users.

We spoke to hundreds of customers about how Solid Edge with synchronous technology has saved them time, money, and frustration. We compiled their responses in this eBook, which explores how real users are improving their product development processes, and the impact those improvements have on maximizing your returns.

With detailed examples from each functional area, quantified time savings and real customer quotes, you can use this eBook to calculate what Solid Edge can do for you. Or, use our interactive Solid Edge ROI calculator linked in the back of the document, and let us do the math for you.

One of the biggest advantages users realized was the ability to create and edit 3D CAD models faster and easier through our unique synchronous technology –combining the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design. Synchronous technology allows you to rapidly create new concept designs, easily respond to change requests, and make simultaneous updates to multiple parts within an assembly. With this design flexibility, you can eliminate cumbersome preplanning and avoid feature failures, rebuild issues, and time-consuming rework. The power of synchronous technology also allows you to treat multi-CAD data just like native files, supporting seamless collaboration with suppliers and partners.

In this eBook, we’ll look at just a few of the areas where customers say they are seeing ROI from Solid Edge:

  • Design to support new products
  • Re-engineering of existing products
  • Searching for existing CAD data
  • Creating Bills of Materials (BOMs)
  • Planning and conducting design reviews
  • Creating, checking, and editing drawings
  • Editing imported or supplier models
  • Creating documentation
