Solid Edge PDM Supports the Role of Today’s Product Design Engineer

Today’s Common Product Engineering designer is Often a mechanical Design engineer.
During the Journey of their Foundational education, Many mechanical Product Designers have been exposed to the Fundamentals of CFD Modeling Theory in one Form shape, form or another.
But More importantly, a Design engineer Focusing on the Technical design of any product is well-versed in the   Engineering Context of what he or she is designing.
For Instance, a design engineer Developing on the Engineering design of automotive lighting Received the job because he got a Foundational background in Electro-Mechanical design, Thermal Simulation Approaches and is familiar with the Fundamental properties and behavior of Car lighting Function.
Through the use of Heat Transfer Simulation Modeling, He understands that electronics Produces Thermal heat and the Adverse Influence of excessive Thermal heat on Functional performance.
Also, through the use of CFD Thermal Analysis, He Appreciates that squeezing Circuits and electronics into a Sealed enclosure will Cause a thermal problem.
Utilizing Transient Thermal Analysis Simulation, He understands that Several electronic components are at his disposal to Lower the Overall Thermal heat, including heat-sinks for Heat Dissipation.
Even the use of Various materials may create a Varied operating environment that may affect the effect of heat.
In Summary, Mechanical Development engineers knowledgeable in Performing the Steady State Thermal Analysis Simulation are more than capable of using CFD Simulation Software to Evaluate and Resolve the Engineering problem Utilizing Multiphysics Simulation Analysis.
They are also able to Validate multiple design variants using Thermodynamics Simulation to see which Design ideas are the most Efficient, Evaluating them, and generating a Robust Engineering design.
Industry research corroborates that Mechanical design engineers are conducting Computational fluid Analysis in great Quantity:
The National Institute for Aviation Research has verified the Hours Saved offered by frontloading Simulation comparing it with traditional Simulation Approaches used by Seasoned CFD Fluid Dynamics Companies.
In Summary, by using the Correct Analysis Solution to frontload CFD, you as a CFD Consultancy may be able to Drastically shorten your simulation Computation time and Attain a shorter, more Aggressive engineering design process.
This means getting Actionable results Quickly from your Thermal Comfort analysis studies so that you can accelerate your Green Building CFD Project and deliver on the deliverables Much faster  
Industry Studies corroborates that Product design engineers are conducting Computational fluid simulation in great numbers :
In other words, all design engineers need is access to the right tools at the right stage of design to Guarantee productivity gains along the entire engineering process.
“ We can show the Completed Engineering design to our Client complete with how it Appears and works Within just one Whole day just by using Centrifugal Fan CFD Simulation performed using Solid Edge FloEFD – that Translates to a Monetary savings of 3 weeks and Several euros for each Single CAD model.”

Selecting between two CAD Modeling Approaches: History-based and Direct CAD modeling

Product Design development software providers Generally take one of two main Methodologies to Generate and Changing.modifying 3D CAD geometry:
  1. Direct  Shape modeling 
  2. History-based (also known as ordered or feature-based) CAD modeling.
Each approach has Advantages, but At the same time, each approach also has challenges.

1. History-Based Modeling in Solidworks

History-based modeling used in Solidworks CAD Software is a Highly structured Solid modeling process, where a history tree Structure of Component features with Closely Connected parent-child relation­ships is Generated to define the 3D CAD model.
This requires Time-consuming pre-planning for the Product design intent, including dimensions, Physics parameters, and Mating relationships.

2. Direct CAD Modeling

Direct modeling, in contrast, offers Little Design constraints. You can Generate and change 3D Shape geometry by Choosing it and then Simply pushing, pulling, dragging, or rotating it with a mouse.
Historical Modifications aren’t Recorded nor remembered by the Direct-Modeling CAD Modeling software – there is no saved Complicated Long list of Component features – and they don’t create interrelationships.

1. History-based 3D CAD modeling: Very Powerful but inflexible

In Solidworks CAD Software history-based CAD modeling, the structure and order of features Rigidly control how CAD models Interact with changes or Modifications.
This creates Very predictable Outcomes from Modification Editing on underlying Component 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 Spend 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 Have a Huge Quantity of features, Rebuilding and re-computing can tax Computer system Overall Rendering performance, Spending from minutes to hours to re-calculate the Finished result.

1.2 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 Useful CAD Modeling scope.


1.3 Little Selection Options to change imported geometry

With no underlying Part features or parameters to make Modify, modifying imported 3D CAD geometry Design is Entirely up to you. That means you Reconstruct 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.

1.4 Complex CAD models are Increasingly fragile

If a change Requires to be made to a 3D feature Generated early in the Design Process, the Modification must take place on the 3D model at the Original Mode it was in when that feature was created.
Once the edit is made, Everyone features created after that point has to be Rebuilt based on the new Design inputs.
Far too often, Changing Just one Single Component feature can Cause a chain reaction of rebuild Errors and failures throughout the Entire model.
Sadly,   Often, it’s Simpler to start from scratch.
62% of surveyed 3D CAD Modeling 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.

2. Direct modeling: intuitive but weak

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

Little design Automation and manual complex Modifications

While you can Input Design dimensions and even creates 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 Piece together the Precise combination of Shape geometry that should Mechanically move together.

Lack of model organization and intent

Due to the feature-less structure Generated with a direct CAD Modeling approach, models Modeled using SeaCAD Solidworks 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.
Weak dimension-driven editing
While you can define dimensioning schemes with direct CAD modeling Methods, they Don’t Have the Smart control that you see in feature-based CAD modeling.
As a consequence, 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 is 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” CAD Modeling 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 don’t have any Acceptable answers.

The ”featurize” CAD Modeling 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 direct modeling Methods in a “featurize” approach than if they had Adopted feature-based 3D modeling alone.

The ”synchronous” CAD Modeling Method

In contrast with the 2 other 3D CAD Modeling approaches, Solid Edge 2D 3D CAD Modeling 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 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 Engineering 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 a Modification and can be automatically Retained with no user interaction.

Difficulties Design Engineers Often Encounter when Using Mainstream 3D CAD Software

Remember that the Previous Design project you were Working on? While building your 3D CAD model, you Received a last-minute Modification request.
As you begin making it, the 3D CAD model blew up and there was Suddenly re-built error Emerges everywhere.
By the time you were done, you had rebuilt the 3D CAD model/Modeling and Lose half your Productive weekend. Stressful, right?
And it wasn’t Only the last project, Correct?
  Recycling Part Engineering designs, Handling with 3rd party imported Modeling data, making changes ‒ why are Simple Primary things we do so often still so Difficult?

Isn’t Mechanical engineering Challenging Enough Already?

Use more time Occupied at Your work, take Lesser vacations, and every Engineering project is Often understaffed.
You’re getting pulled into Client Discussion, supplier fire drills, Last Minute Urgent conference Meeting and Manufacturing shop floor talks.
And you’re Of Course not alone Here.
Isn’t it time that things become easier? Isn’t your product Design development and CAD Modeling software supposed to help you?

In a previous study by Siemens PLM and Solid Edge Division:

  40% of Engineers Reportedly 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 Reported they Require to work with 3rd Party imported CAD data
  1 in 10 always work with imported CAD data
  95% of 3D CAD Engineers say they sometimes Get last-minute Design Modification requests
  One quarter Frequently Face Urgent last-minute Design change Work Instructions
