Solid Edge: Collaboration

Collaboration throughout the supply chain

Solid Edge offers a full suite of tools that let designers author, edit, distribute, and explore design alternatives. Create compact design review packages including requirements documents, spreadsheets, 2D and 3D models. Iterate design ideas fast and flexibly with synchronous technology. When designs ideas need to be shared and explored, Solid Edge gives you the right tools.

The free Solid Edge Viewer is an uncomplicated solution built to view Solid Edge assembly, part, sheet metal and draft files, as well as DXF and AutoCAD DWG files in  

For supply chain collaboration, Solid Edge offers a complete design collaboration solution so powerful, you can share and review designs with internal teams, vendors, and to the customer. At the start of the process, Solid Edge lets you document 3D models directly skipping 2D drawing development. This lets your teams better visualize an idea by using 3D data yet review distances through PMI dimensions.

Engineering teams can package design and supporting data into a compact collaboration file that can be sent through email in a packaged file better known as PCF. The recipients can use XpresReview, a free download to view and markup the contents. This process can be tightly managed and controlled through Insight, Solid Edge SP or Teamcenter.

The most exciting part of the process is what synchronous technology has to offer. With this technology casual users can manipulate 3D models with little or no understanding of how or where they were created.
