Solid Edge

Unlock Your Design Potential with Solid Edge and get more for your money!

Solid Edgefrom Siemens is a portfolio of affordable, easy-to-use 3D CAD software tools that address all aspects of the product development process. Solid Edge combines the speed and simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of history0based parametric design – made possible with synchronous technology.

Why Choose Solid Edge? 

Powerful Features: Solid Edge offers robust 3D modeling, simulation, and FREE data management tools. Whether you’re designing a sleek gadget or a complex machine, Solid Edge has you covered.

Synchronous Technology: Solid Edge 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 (imported CAD) data just like native files, supporting seamless collaboration with suppliers and partners. Compatibility with SolidWorks, Inventor, and CREO is built in.

Solid Edge is built on the same “Parasolid” graphics kernel that SolidWorks/Dassault Systemes licenses from Siemens. The Parasolid kernel is effectively the engine & transmission of a CAD solution with the user interface and file system being the body and interior in a vehicle analogy.

User-Friendly Interface: Say goodbye to steep learning curves! Solid Edge’s intuitive interface ensures you’ll be up and running in no time. No more frustration—just creativity.

Affordable Pricing:We get it—budgets matter. Solid Edge delivers top-notch functionality without breaking the bank and choice of an array of licensing options that doesn’t force you to named-users. The cost of floating licenses is within $100 of fixed licensing and there’s no need to buy an expensive “flex” license sharing utility.
