PLANO, Texas, August 27, 2008 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced Solid Edge® software with synchronous technology is shipping to customers worldwide and will ship nine additional languages throughout September. Solid Edge with synchronous technology is the core CAD component of the Velocity Series™ portfolio and incorporates Siemens PLM Software’s new breakthrough history-free, feature-based design technology.
Fast, flexible design speeds innovation
Solid Edge with synchronous technology includes key new features that speed innovation. They include an interactive design paradigm, faster editing tools, native multi-CAD features and 2D/3D workflow integration.
- Create in a new interactive design environment: A new interaction paradigm speeds innovation by enabling users to develop 3D models without any pre-planning giving users up to a 100 times faster design experience.
- Edit faster: New tools increase the speed and flexibility of design changes, so users can perform engineering change orders (ECOs) in seconds instead of hours.
- Edit multi-CAD data as native: All tools in Solid Edge can be used on imported CAD data in the same manner as native models, letting users make changes faster than their supplier.
- Leverage 3D power with 2D simplicity: Familiar 2D workflows within the 3D user interaction paradigm enable users to become experts quickly.
"Solid Edge with synchronous technology will allow us to design special customer requests faster," said John Matthews, mechanical designer, Hatch. "Some of the new editing tools will allow us to make changes quicker in order to meet tight deadlines."
“With an instantaneous modeling experience, this is going to change the way people think about using CAD,” said Jack Beeckman, PLM manager, Liebert Corp. “More importantly it's going to change the way CAD enables them to think about ‘what’ they want to model, and not ‘how’ they want to model.”
