Siemens Digital Industries Software announces the 2021 version of Solid Edge software, which the company says includes design capability enhancements such as new subdivision modeling and improved reverse engineering performance with new deviation analysis. 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 also be used to save time in the early phases of design.

“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.”

According to a press release from the company, enhancements have been made across the Solid Edge portfolio, including:

  • 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.

Siemens is holding a Virtual Launch event on July 15, 2020 at 2 p.m. EST to kick-off the new product update.
