According to a Mckinsey research, it could take up to five years for the most affected industries to recover to their pre-covid performances - with the manufacturing sector being no exception. More so than ever, manufacturers need to reinvent their operational processes so they can adapt dynamically to new market and supply chain realities. The need for such innovations continue to drive businesses in search comprehensive solutions to accelerate recovery cost efficiently.
To address this demand, Siemens Digital Industries Software has announced the 2021 version of Solid Edge® software, featuring usability enhancements that will help users maximize productivity while decreasing production costs. A new artificial intelligence-powered adaptive user interface to predict next steps, and a seamless integration with 3dfind.it, an intelligent 3D model search engine powered by CADENAS, can be used to save valuable time in the upfront design phase.
Solid Edge® software enables users to create exact representations of components in a complete digital mockup for accurate design and analysis. The new enhancements integrate an intelligent 3D model search engine powered by CADENAS to help manufacturers find the parts they need within seconds from different catalogs. This significantly shortens the lead time until the start of production, allowing manufacturers to improve the flexibility of their design and production processes without the need for costly prototypes.
“Solid Edge 2021 is, in my opinion, the best Solid Edge release in years! There are a lot of things that will make the design process easier for our engineers,” said Ricardo Espinosa, R&D Engineering Manager, Kimball. “Subdivision modeling is very powerful. Having the ability to easily incorporate organic shapes into our product designs within the Solid Edge environment is a big deal for us. Having the process contained in one software solution without the need for importing, exporting and translating data is very important.”
Enhancements have been made across the Solid Edge portfolio. These include:
Fast, accurate 2D layout of industrial control panels with new cabinet panel design capabilities.
An optimized integration between flow and structural simulation.
A new searchable postprocessor database and improved roughing and adaptive milling capabilities accelerate Numerical Control programming.
Enhanced cloud-based collaboration options with the introduction of Teamcenter® Share, which can be used with Solid Edge to synchronize desktop files to secure cloud storage.
