Our Main Initiatives:

The Cloud: Solid Edge Software creates cloud-ready designs when you need them most. With cloud capabilities, there are endless opportunities for easy access to CAD drawings across different devices. Easy, instant configuration of your environment with shared data allows for teams to view anything, anywhere.

Mobility from Anywhere: With so many new innovations to tablet and phone devices, design engineers are reaping major benefits. When files need to be located, they can easily do so from the shop floor, an office, or even while traveling on-site to customers or suppliers. The free Solid Edge Mobile Viewer app is another option at your fingertips that allows you to quickly view any Solid Edge Software parts, assemblies, and drawings.


By using these newly advanced tools and high-performance devices, you can gain full access to any CAD projects. 


Synchronous technology enables designers to go from 2D to 3D and accelerate model creation and make faster edits – reducing rework and eliminating the need for model regeneration.


3D modeling has its advantages, but at the end of the day, the shop floor needs 2D drawing. Solid Edge makes it easy to create CAD drawings and go from 2D to 3D instantly.


Using methods tailored to the unique needs of sheet metal design, Sheet Metal Part Design is a core design capability of Solid Edge and provides an entire design-through-fabrication workflow.

What’s New in Solid Edge Software | 2022

Siemens Solid Edge 2022 provides over 500 new features and functions that will take the stress out of your daily tasks – supporting modern product development processes, allowing you to do more with your resources, and enabling new ways of working. With more time on your hands, you’ll be able to best utilize resources right at your fingertips.

What are a Few New Features in Siemens Solid Edge 2022?

CAD Geometry Integrations

  • With the new and enhanced seamless technology, CAD systems can easily be integrated for assemblies, data, or file sharing.


2.5 Axis Milling

  • For active maintenance users, this feature is top notch. Design data and tool path creation within this integration creates optimized machining processes.


Collaboration Between Teams

  • Cloud-based sharing allows teams to share, create, and collaborate at any time, from anywhere. With virtual prototyping functions and augmented reality, there is no need for further IT support in this department.


Generate Design Data Views Clearly

  • Customized reports now allow users to create dynamic viewing methods with new rules and filters for detail refinement.


Increase Simulation Speed

  • Now 10x faster than before, automated processes provide maximum results with minimum effort. From high quality mesh to simulation display performance, tasks can get done quickly and efficiently.

Visualization in the Real-World

  • Assembly and viewing tools can be used for positioning equipment in any setting so spaces can easily be envisioned from start to finish.


Leverage Geometry Models

  • Without Conversions Speed up workflows with coexisting b-rep and mesh geometries. The ease of coexisting models means that you’ll save plenty of time throughout the model development process that can be better utilized elsewhere.


Slow Down No More!

  • With Solid Edge Software, fast assembly open allows users to reduce data overload by quickly entering preview modes. This also allows users to take advantage of the component finder for quick filters at your fingertips.


  • Automatically generate new designs based on defined parameters and rules with the embedded Solid Edge® Design Configurator software


  • CAD Direct, a new built-in 3D design capability, improves productivity when working with geometry from popular computer-aided design (CAD) systems


  • Leverage b-rep and mesh geometries in the same model without conversions


  • New automated mesh generation processes in Solid Edge Simulation provide high-quality mesh with minimum effort, controlling mesh without the need for parameters.


  • Introducing Simcenter™ Flomaster™ for Solid Edge software: based on a leading 1D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tool for fluids engineering, this new product allows users to easily model and analyze the fluid and thermal flows in their piping systems.
