Solid Edge Generative design


Optimize Geometry Form-Factors to Attain Your design Objectives

Solid Edge Generative Design is often the underlying reason why many Companies in Singapore choose Solid Edge.
Often we get asked in a Usual Solid Edge vs Solidworks Dialogue with Clients, what makes Solid Edge Different from Solidworks? The Classic answer is Solid Edge’s Generative design Functionality.

Solid Edge Generative Design

Generative design is a Product Design process that Uncovers the most Functionally efficient Form-factor Geometry based on Predefined material Specifications, Physical constraints, and Loading stresses.

Computer-Driven Design

Also Called topology optimization among Siemens Solid Edge and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ Users, generative design takes 3D CAD modeling from “computer-aided” to “computer-driven” – with resulting Organic Shape Form factor that looks very much like Organic.
The global Highly competitive Environment for Factory is Pressing everyone – from the Tier 1 Car Making companies to Consumer electronics goods manufacturers. It is Compressing the Needed time to Deliver to market and with little warning.
This Stress Business environment requires Extremely high productivity from its players resulting In either Performing things Quicker and Streamlined without Sacrificing on Product Manufacturing quality or giving the game away to a hungrier competitor who is willing to do whatever it takes.

Generative design: How is it different?

With traditional Engineering design, you typically create multiple Design Variants, then evaluate, Test and optimize one or more Design Iteration, based on your Functional design Objectives.
With Solid Edge Newest generative design Technology, you start with your Engineering design goals, and algorithms automatically generate optimized design options for Attaining them.
You can use Solid Edge Software to create Many iterations of Design Ideas, identifying Design options to meet various Engineering Objectives (i.e. weight reduction).
The Streamlined process in Solid Edge Premium Usually results in Elegant organic Design Shape forms similar to those observed in nature.

Intuitively Design with goals in mind

Looking to Buy Solid Edge? You’ll be Happy to Learn that Solid Edge’s Integrated Generative design Approach used in Solid Edge ST10 is meant to Generate 3D models that Satisfy your Engineering design goals and Comply to Existing/Pre-existing Design constraints, with Lightweight compo­nents and minimal material usage.
This Solid Edge Synchronous Generative Design Workflow can also drive innovation, by breaking Pass our Conventional notions of what a Mechanical Product design should Appear like and creating shape Geometries that are Specially optimized for that specific purpose.
All the Engineering user needs to do is Occasionally guide the Solid Edge PDM software in the Design workspace – defining fixed points or inputs, Force loads and Engineering Part materials.

At a very Affordable Solid Edge Price point, Obtain a reduced-mass 3D geometric solution of a Precise material optimized within a 3D design space, accounting for permissible Force loads and Boundary Conditions.
Immediately Fabricate the body via 3D additive Manufacturing processes, use it as a Main core for mold base Engineering design, or Utilize the Solid Edge 2D toolkit to further refine the Design shape Form-factor for traditional manufacturing.

How does Solid Edge Generative Design work?


Evolve using convergent technology

The Very optimized and Refined Engineering components Created Using generative design can be further modified with Solid Edge Simulation and convergent modeling.
The Meshing results are seamlessly Fused into the normal model Creation process, Enabling you to get to your final Finished design quickly.
The 3D CAD models Generated through Solid Edge generative design in conjunction with Solid Edge NX and Solid Edge FloEFD be used in Complete assembly models alongside traditional b-rep models, and can be placed onto drawing sheets.
Generative design Function in Solid Edge CAD Software is accomplished through a simple workflow, where the user Pre-defines Geometry Dimensional constraints and Environmental Loading conditions, and the Solid Edge CAD system automatically Offers resulting options.
  1. Input the Engineering design space (or envelope).
  2. Add Loading case.
  3. Add Physical constraints.
  4. Choose the design for Fabrication settings.
  5. Generate Shape design.
  6. Evaluate the strength of your Simulation Analysis Data Results.

Transitioning to manufacturing

Creating 3D designs that can be Highly complex, how do you make them real?
Generative designs Capabilities in Solid Edge Classic are Highly suited for 3D printing, can be further Enhanced for traditional manufacturing methods.

Ready for 3D printing

Why Solid Edge ?

Don’t Just Model, Innovate!

Accelerate Product Development productivity Output by frontloading CFD Analysis


Conventional CFD Software tools from CFD Software Companies are crammed Full with Complicated technology that requires advanced training and education, which is why dedicated CAE Consultants are usually assigned the task.
For example, most Conventional CFD Fluid Dynamic Simulation Analysis tools used by CFD Services Companies, such as Ansys Fluent and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ support many Forms of meshing algorithms.
The CFD Consultant has to Understand which one would be the most suitable for the specific Design application.
Also, he or she will have to work on the mesh until an optimal mesh for the CAD model and application has been achieved. In short, using Conventional CFD Flow Analysis Software Solutions, such as Fluent Software and Siemens Star-CCM+ can be extremely time-consuming and slower than is needed during the Product design Phase.
Here are some examples of successful Deployment of Solid Edge FloEFD™ software, Siemens PLM’s frontloaded CFD solution, by the design group:
“ The most important consideration in selecting a Fluid Dynamic analysis software tool was that all team members in the CFD Company could use it regardless of their level of ability… The people who don’t have much experience of FEA analysis can use it Very easily… It was Crucial that the Simulation tool Efficiently integrated with ENGINEER.
We didn’t want to have to Fabricate a Separate model for CFD analysis and being Fully CAD- embedded we could Efficiently Check various CFD analysis models Continuously. We also wouldn’t have any Challenge in Changing Among Different Development Workflow (from CAD design to CAE analysis).
— Seiko Epson
“ We have eight Mechanical designers in our Team and three use Solid Edge FloEFD. You can use it once every three months because you won’t forget how to use it!
The special thing about Solid Edge FloEFD is that you are Significantly closer to reality in this Frontload CFD software, which allowed us to perform various Ship Optimization CAE Studies, such as Ship Hydrodynamics Simulation Studies, Performing of Ship Propeller CFD to Optimize Thrust and Lowering Hydrodynamic Resistance, as well as Ship Propeller Cavitation CFD Studies.”
— Orbotech
“ We like FloEFD Flow simulation capabilities in Solid Edge 2019 because it is Quick in the calculation for steady analysis. Since we have no specialist CFD Consultants, our Engineers take care of CFD Turbulent simulation Simulation of the Centrifugal Pump CFD.
Solid Edge FloEFD is the best for CFD Turbulence Modeling because of its Significantly simplified auto-meshing setting inside our preferred CAD Software package, PTC Creo. We found the cut cell CFD function to be very valuable.”
— Mitsubishi Materials Corporation
“ We can Demonstrate the finished Engineering design to our customer Finished with how it looks and Perform in just one single day just by using Centrifugal Fan CFD Simulation performed using Solid Edge FloEFD – that Converts to a Financial savings of three weeks and thousands of euros for Every Single CAD model.”
