608 part modeling in solid edge - a hands-on experience - doug stainbrook

1,001

Published on

In this Solid Edge hands-on training session, we will a look at some enhancements to live rules, what each of them does, and how to make them work in your favor. Next we will take a look at new and exciting synchronous features and modeling techniques, included with Solid Edge ST5, which will make creating and editing your parts much easier. New synchronous commands have been added and many have been enhanced to make them more streamlined and user friendly. We will work through several step-by-step exercises covering how some of these new commands work and when and where you should use them.

  1. 1. Part Modeling in Solid Edge:A Hands-on ExperienceDoug StainbrookSIEMENS PLM SoftwareSolid Edge Field Support #SEU12
  2. 2. Presenter backgroundPresenter background:  Doug Stainbrook is the team leader for the Solid Edge Field Support Team. This group is the technical resource for supporting Solid Edge pre- sales activities around the world. Before coming to the Solid Edge team, he spent about 10 years as a designer for various industries. In 1999, Doug was hired as a Solid Edge Application Engineer in Philadelphia, PA. In 2000, he came to Huntsville, AL, to the home of Solid Edge to work in the Field Support group.Areas of Expertise:  Synchronous and Ordered Part and Sheet Metal modeling © Siemens AG 2012.
