Synchronous technology


Synchronous modeling of parts and assemblies

The new version of Solid Edge extends synchronous technology in part and assembly modeling, allows the creation of more complex features and includes advanced tools for modifying sketches, which will shorten the modeling time.

To improve data migration from 2D to 3D Solid Edge during model creation converts 2D dimensions from imported drawings 3D driving dimensions. So users can edit 3D models from 2D drawings obtained. Additionally, you can use the Live cuts to simplify editing 3D model. This feature allows the user to edit 2D cross sections in any part of a 3D model, and update the model in real time.

A new application for the construction of sheet metal parts

Solid Edge now uses asynchronous technology also in the modeling of sheet metal parts. This application, based on elements without depending on history, allowing the modeling of bent sheet metal components.
Using synchronous technology for construction of sheet metal components represents an important step in the utilization of this technology even beyond the current modeling of parts and assemblies and predetermine its use in other areas of the structure.
"A process-specific application such as. Module for sheet metal components, are good examples of disciplines that require specialized tools and a set of unique features," said Dan Staples, director of Solid Edge development center, Siemens PLM Software. "Our customers who use the module for the design of sheet metal parts can achieve dramatic time savings it brings synchronous technology. And now that synchronous technology has been extended to the module for the design of sheet metal parts, you can assess what the potential of this technology. "

New finite element analysis

Solid Edge Simulation is a new, easy to use tool for finite element analysis, which is designed for engineers to verify designs in Solid Edge environment. Solid Edge Simulation is based on proven technology and product Femap® solver NX ™ Nastran® significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, thereby reducing testing costs and simultaneously reduces the time required to create the design.

"Today's economic situation is forcing designers to work much more independently than ever," said Bill McClure, vice president of product development for Velocity Series, Siemens PLM Software. "With Solid Edge Simulation you can perform more analytical tasks in less time - the result will be improved quality, cut costs and reduce the need for physical prototypes. Also, by avoiding the high costs associated with submitting perform analyzes by specialized companies. "

Solid Edge Insight data management Compatible with Microsoft SharePoint

Solid Edge now offers enhancements in Insight design data management, which is a key element of the Velocity Series portfolio, which includes Teamcenter. "Solid Edge Insight is now available for Windows SharePoint and provides better collaboration and management of design data for small and medium-sized businesses," said Don Richardson, director of Global Innovation and PLM Industry Strategy from Microsoft.

This tool was first introduced to the management of the design documentation using the ease of use and low total cost platform Microsoft SharePoint. Since 2001 used by thousands of users Insight advantage of its tight integration with Solid Edge, its efficient approval process and web portal for improved collaboration.

The new version of Solid Edge Insight is now available for Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. WSS is included with Windows Server 2003 and 2008 so Solid Edge users already have
Available core components for easy implementation. These latest platforms from Microsoft provide users with better cooperation Insight, the organization of processes and security options, leading to streamline and improve design work.
