Introducing Solid Edge

 

Solid Edge

Solid Edge from Siemens provides Next Generation Technologies that Solve Today’s Toughest Product Development Challenges.

 

Solid Edge CAD

 

The value of Solid Edge CAD synchronous technology: easier

With Solid Edge CAD Software synchronous technology in Siemens Solid Edge Platform, importing a 3rd party file from another 3D CAD system in Singapore is as simple as just opening it.
 

1. Intelligent Design intent recognition

Synchronous technology in Solid Edge Classic Enables you to recognizes and Retains Engineering design intent on the Go, giving sensible and Understandable Design changes and Enabling for faster   Revision Changes.
 

2. Simulation preparation

Preparing a model for finite element analysis (FEA) is easy with Solid Edge 2D and 3D synchronous technology, even if you don’t have extensive 3D CAD Experience. Solid Edge Simulation provides easy-to-use tools for FEA and CFD simulation preparation, and it does not matter if your 3D geometry Design was created Originally in Solid Edge or another 3rd party 3D CAD Modeling Software Products such as Solidworks.
 

3. Improved design re-use from other models

Easily re-use design detail from other models ‒ with just a copy and paste. Solid Edge 2019 Synchronous technology treats files in other CAD formats just like they were native Solid Edge files.
 

4. Easy editing of imported data

Modifying imported CAD data in Solid Edge PDM Software is done by simply Selecting and dragging Design features.
Or add and edit Geometrical dimensions on-the-Go within the Solid Edge Software, and intelligent updates will happen automatically as if a history Feature tree exists.
 

Frontloaded CFD Simulation Significantly Compresses Solving Time

Also frontloaded CFD Flow Analysis solutions Shorten Simulation Computation time significantly – some organizations have Even reported a time Compression of over 75 percent.
 

How is this Even possible?

Frontloaded CFD CAE solutions offer CFD Consultants and Mechanical Engineers Alike key Tested CAE technologies that Significantly Minimize the Requirements for 3D Geometry preparation and preprocessing, such as :
• By being fully embedded in the Solid Edge Software CAD Modeling Environment, the Solid Edge FloEFD software Utilizes the Common native geometry Data for Numerical Computation.
Manually Exporting CAD data and Patching To Pre-processing for CFD Analysis Simulation or Finite Element FEA analysis is no longer needed.
Besides, the Solid Edge FEA Simulation software, namely Solid Edge NX Nastran, simply Inserts in – it does not need you to Master an Unfamiliar Software User interface nor does it Need an Experience with the Software interface Each time the Simulation software is Utilized.
Performing CFD analysis is simply another Software functionality offered Inside the Solid Edge 2020 CAD Software Suite.
 
• In CFD Computational fluid-flow Dynamics Analysis and Thermal heat-transfer analysis, the CFD Consulting Objective is Focused on understanding what Flow happening in the negative space, ie. the empty Domain.
With Conventional CFD Simulation, Extra Design geometry has to be created to represent that cavity Geometry.
Frontloaded CFD Software solutions Coupled with the Solid Edge Synchronous Technology are intelligent enough to recognize that space is the fluid domain to be Analyzed so that no Precious Hours is Lost Generating geometry to Operate the CFD software. This step is Now made completely Irrelevant.
 

TIP 1

Encourage performance assessment as Soon as Possible and promote collaboration and knowledge sharing between analysis experts and design engineers during the design process to immediately improve efficiency and productivity in your organization.
 

TIP 2

Impact efficiency and company profit margins by reducing the Quantity of Engineering Variants and optimizing Development Expenses (through the use of better materials and quality).
 

TIP 3

Successful Execution is the key to Gaining benefits of frontloading CFD Simulation for various CFD Applications, such as Natural Ventilation Simulation Analysis, Marine Ship Propeller Simulation Analysis, and Wastewater Treatment Simulation Studies.
 

TIP 4

Select the solution that fits into your existing processes without any disruption.
 

TIP 5

Choosing the right CAE Simulation Software to frontload CFD Analysis, significantly Accelerate CFD and FSI Analysis simulation Solving time and achieve a more Aggressive Product design process.
 

TIP 6

Using the Correct Software tool, CFD design engineers are more than capable of assessing a problem, checking design variants, and testing trends.

About History-Based Modeling

1. History-based modeling: powerful but Highly inflexible

In Solidworks history-based modeling, the structure and order of features control how CAD models Interact with changes or Modifications.
This creates Very predictable Outcomes from edits on underlying feature 2D sketches using precise Dimensional Modifications.
Because of this Part feature control, automating changes and Interlinking features together is Extremely Convenient.
 

1.1 Challenges in Editing and Rebuilding Model and Avoiding Rebuild Errors

But Engineers must take time to carefully plan out how they Construct the Whole 3D CAD model, as even simple edits Modifications inside Solidworks Software can Require a lot of Precious time – or occasionally Need remodeling.
And if an Engineering part contains a Huge Quantity of features, Rebuilding and re-computing can tax Computer system Overall performance, Spending from minutes to hours to re-calculate the final result.
 

1.2 Few options to change imported geometry

With no underlying Part features or parameters to make Modify, modifying imported CAD geometry is Entirely up to you. That means you rebuild design intent ‒ often removing geometry and manually Putting Part features back in.
Either way, your Utilization of the Geometry Dimensional parameters in those Part Design features to Realize change.
Flexibility Lowers as your Part design progresses
Features and parameters offer Extremely Useful ways to automate Modifications and capture design intent.
However, they are highly Rigid. Design Modifications using Solidworks are Restricted to the pre-defined definition of the Part feature Generated earlier.
Dimensioning schemes are Self-contained within features, Restricting their scope.
 

1.3 Complex models are exceedingly fragile

If a change needs to be made to a feature created early in the design, the edit must take place on the model at the state it was in when that feature was created. Once the edit is made, all features created after that point have to be Rebuilt based on the new Design inputs.
Far too often, Changing Just one feature can trigger a chain reaction of rebuild Errors and failures throughout the Entire model.
Often, it’s easier to start from scratch.
 
62% of surveyed 3D CAD Software users agreed that history-based modeling can be powerful but Highly inflexible, and as a result, Early Conceptual design is slowed by time-consuming preplanning, imported models often have to be Pain-painstakingly recreated, and making late-stage Engineering design Modifications is difficult. 

About Direct Modeling


2. Direct modeling: intuitive but weak

Direct modeling doesn’t maintain a history of features or Legacy how a 3D Geometry model is built. No 2D sketches are driving 3D features that make up the p Component Design.
Design Editing is Executed by simply selecting what you wish to change and Modifying it – fast and easy. With no rebuild of features after changes, there are no performance issues on edits.
However, without features or Historical Information on how a part is made, designers aren’t able to Generate precise Modifications or automate using Traditional and Critical parametric inputs such as Design dimensions.
 

2.1. Lack of model organization and intent

Due to the feature-less structure Generated with a direct Modeling approach, models Modeled using Solidworks CAD Software Generally lack Structured organization and Clear engineering Design intent.
This makes it Challenging to find engineering features Within the CAD model, or identify related Collections when an Engineering design needs to be Modified – for example if you require to change the depth of counterbore holes in a 3D CAD model, but Retain the countersink holes as is.
 

2.2. Little design intelligence and manual complex changes

While you can Input Design dimensions and even create relationships, Retention of the Ultimate Design intent and purpose is the Ultimate weak spot for direct modeling Approach as seen in Solidworks CAD Software.
That, in turn, makes it Challenging to automate intelligent Engineering design change.
Because the direct modeling approaches in Many 3D CAD Modeling applications don’t Identify the inherent Inter-relationships between different pieces of Shape geometry Created within the model, Designers and users are left to manually cobble together the Precise combination of geometry that should Mechanically move together.
 

2.3. Weak dimension-driven editing

While you can define dimensioning schemes with direct modeling approaches, they Don’t Have the intelligent control that you see in feature-based modeling. As a result, when you attempt a specific change, you don’t always get what you expected.

Buyer Beware: The differences matter

Many CAD Software Resellers claim to Provide “flexible” CAD modeling or a “combination of direct and fea­ture-based modeling” ‒ but not all Variation of this Modeling approach are Generated equally.
When evaluating software vendors, make sure you fully understand how they are Offering this Direct-Modeling capability and the implications of that Modeling approach.
 

The ”translate” Method

One Method is to Maintain two separate CAD Modeling environments, one for Traditional feature-based modeling and one for direct modeling, and translate any 3D Design geometry Generation or modification between them.
The approach seems logical at face value, but there are Serious underlying Challenges.
3D Feature in feature-based Methodology falls into preset definitions for Generation and modifications.
CAD Geometry in 3D direct modeling Do not have any preset definition and can allow Drastic Design modifications ‒ modifications that can even Conflict with the Earlier definitions of the features used to originally create that Shape geometry.
How do you translate that change?
To date, these CAD Software vendors Such as SEACAD Technologies Pte Ltd don’t have any Acceptable answers.
 

The ”featurize” approach

As in the translate approach, the “featurize” approach also Maintain feature-based and direct modeling environments Separately but records creation or modification actions as a feature.
The main challenge with this approach used in Solidworks is that numerous direct modeling Editing can result in a large number of additional features.
Those features can result in More interdependencies with prior generated Component features. A lack of Precise management of feature interdependencies can Lead To 3D models that are failure-prone. Oddly enough, with this approach, Engineers may be creating even more Complex CAD models with a direct modeling Approach in a “featurize” approach than if they had Adopted feature-based modeling alone.
 

The ”synchronous” approach

In contrast with the 2 other 3D CAD Modeling approaches, Solid Edge 2D 3D CAD Modeling uses/Utilizes a “synchronous” Method, leveraging the strengths of both History-based CAD Modeling and direct modeling in a single Integrated Modeling environment.
No Time-consuming translations back and forth where Engineers/you could Potentially remove your Earlier Design Editing Data.
No secret features hidden Within the scenes to unnecessarily complicate the model. Solid Edge Synchronous technology allows Engineering to freely make Modifications to Engineering design intent by Simply using the 3D model faces themselves, allowing for intuitive changes to designs.
This Original Engineering design intent can be Modified using 3D dimensions and face relationships and con­straints Pre-defined.
The true power of synchronous, however, is that Most of the design intent of a 3D CAD model is inherently recognized and maintained through the software without any physical actions from the designer.
Things like coplanar faces, concentric cylinders and symmetry are automatically detected during an Modification and can be automatically Retained with no user interaction. 
 

 
Remember that Previous Engineering/Design project? While building your 3D CAD model, you Received a last-minute Modification request. As you started making it, the model blew up and there was re-built error everywhere.
By the time you were done, you had Finally rebuilt the 3D CAD model and Lose half your Productive weekend. Frustrating/Stressful, right? And it wasn’t just the last project, was it?
Re-using Part Engineering designs, Handling with imported Modeling data, making changes ‒ why are Fundamental things we do so often still so challenging?
 

Isn’t Mechanical engineering Challenging Enough Already?

Use more time Busy at work, take Lesser vacations, and every Engineering project is Always understaffed. You’re getting pulled into customer Discussion, supplier fire drills, conference Meetings, and Engineering shop floor talks. And you’re Definitely not alone.
Isn’t it time that things got easier? Isn’t your product development software supposed to help?
 
 

In a recent study by Siemens Solid Edge:

  •   40% of Engineers said it is an Urgent priority to be able to Efficiently re-use existing designs
     But finding and reusing Pre-existing Engineering design data was their 3rd Largest challenge
  •   99% of CAD Design users said they Require to work with 3rd Party imported CAD data
     1 in 10 always work with imported CAD data
  •   95% of CAD Engineers say they sometimes Get last-minute Design Modification requests
      One quarter Frequently experience last-minute Design change requests
