Solid Edge

The best Mechanical CAD for Electronics

Thanks to Synchronous Technology, Solid Edge is the only CAD solution that combines the speed and simplicity of Direct Modeling with the flexibility and control of Parametric Design.

Solid Edge reduces design iteration and time-to-market of complex electro-mechanical products thanks to the collaboration capabilities with electrical and electronic Siemens solutions, such as PADS Professional, and Xpedition.

Benefits of collaboration in PCB design

White Paper

This e-book introduces ways to maximize the benefits of collaboration in PCB Design. It includes product information on Solid Edge PCB Collaboration on the last pages.

Why choose Solid Edge for 3D Mechanical Design of Electronics?

Solid Edge is easy to learn and use

Solid Edge has a very intuitive user interface that allows you to switch easily between direct modeling and parametric design to try out various design alternatives. You can easily import and export PCB design data and create 3D digital models and photorealistic images.

Design flexibility eliminates time-consuming reworks

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, before arriving at the finished product.

Easy Electrical and Mechanical Co-design

Integration with the EDA tools makes electrical co-design and ECAD MCAD collaboration easy and your product more reliable, making Solid Edge the ideal solution both for PCB Design and Cabling and Harness Design.

CFD analysis of electronics is integrated into Solid Edge

Thermo fluid dynamics simulation and 3D CFD analysis of electronics are performed directly inside Solid Edge, with great competitive advantages in industries like Automotive, Medical, Lighting, and Power Electronics.

Enabling fast PCB development

White Paper

This white paper focused on processes that facilitate collaboration across disciplines. It discusses the benefits of using specific formats in the development of printed circuit boards, and describes how Solid Edge PCB Design and Collaboration software can be used to synchronize data efficiently and collaborate more effectively.

A Digital Twin of the product with Solid Edge PCB Collaboration

A key way that challenges in the area of electromechanical design can be addressed is by including PCBs as an integral part of the Digital Twin.

Solid Edge PCB Collaboration provides an excellent solution for collaboration between electrical and mechanical disciplines and the ability to bring design aspects back and forth, maybe propose a design change and accept or reject it. That’s all supported through the IDX 2.0 and 3.0 formats.

Solid Edge PCB Collaboration supports the mapping of 3D models to and from both the Siemens PCB design solutions: PADS Professional and Expedition. It also supports integration with 3rd party PCB design solutions.
