This course will demonstrate the integrated modeling environment for Part modeling. Users will be exposed to the concepts of how the two distinct modeling systems work together in a single part file. Integrated modeling proposes new ways of design and this class will explore these advances. Synchronous users that attend this class will learn about the powerful Ordered features and when to use them. Traditional users will be exposed to the Synchronous environments so that they may understand when to convert their systems, models, or features to the new paradigm.
- Pure Models / Integrated Models
- Live Sections and Sketches
- Transform to Synchronous
- Surfacing Solutions

  • 1. Solid Edge Advanced Part Modeling © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.
  • 2. Dan Vinson – Product Manager  Background:  Solid Edge since 2004  Industrial Designer, Project Management, Change Agent  Manufacturing, Construction, and Control Systems  Areas of Expertise:  Part and Sheet Metal Modeling  Synchronous Modeling  Wiring Harness  Explode – Render – Animate  Personal interests:  Vehicles  Anything New!Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 2 Siemens PLM Software
  • 3. ST4 Advanced Part Modeling  Today’s Topics:  Definitions  Features Differences  Cross Mode Modeling  Case Study  Recycling Geometry  Beautiful Images  Key Takeaways:  How to use the entire Synchronous Model  How to know when to use whatSolid Edge.

  • 4. Definitions  Developer / Planner Speak  Common vocabulary for communication  Just like any industry  New elements added daily  New Product = New Language  Synchronous and Ordered specificity  Duplicity of commands requires new distinction  Creation and manipulationSolid Edge.

  • 5. Definitions  Creation = Model Genesis  Where did it come from??  Created by feature  Feature Library entry  Insert Part Copy or Inter-Part Copy  Adding a Feature  Synchronous = Face Sets  Ordered = Features  Copy of Elements  Still it is Creation...Solid Edge.

  • 6. Definitions  Common Model Manipulations  Any time a model is edited….  Move / Rotate via Steering Wheel  Dimension Edit  Cut / Delete  Detach / Attach  Live Rules  Editing is Feature Oriented  Unique from manipulation  Altering the attributes that define the procedureSolid Edge.

  • 7. Synchronous Features  Part Features  Face Sets for most features  Manipulated by Live Rules  Holes and helixes are rigid  Edit the feature  Pattern features  Both rigid and adaptable  Sheet Metal Deformed Features  Typically rigid in Sheet Metal  May be manipulated as a rigid chunk  Native feature can be edited to alter profile or attributesSolid Edge.

  • 8. Ordered Features  Part Features  Any model element with enough intelligence to rebuild itself  Requires existing model geometry before application  Some features equipped with a Feature Origin  Holes  Helix  Patterns  Sheet Metal Deformed Features  Dimples  Drawn Cutouts  BeadsSolid Edge.

  • 9. Synchronous Procedural Features  Feature Origin  An associative model element that keeps the feature on the model face  Known as the “the Nail” during development  The handle for the feature  Stays with the feature  May be re-assigned to another face and even another model  Synchronous elementSolid Edge.

  • 10. Cross Mode Modeling  Fully Synchronous model  Both modes are used  Feature has a parent in the Synchronous mode  Common Use Cases  Surfacing  Blank part sizing  Lofted FlangesSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 10 Siemens PLM Software
  • 11. Recycling Geometry  Synchronous Modeling supports re-use  Why model again if the shape or part is already in use?  Copy during a Move command  Copy / Paste a feature from another model  Drag in an element from Feature Library Copy PasteSolid Edge.

  • 12. Case Study  Common Story for Many Small & Medium Businesses  Craftsman / Technician / Designer, not an Engineer  Not AutoCAD proficient  Needs tooling, has skillsSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 12 Siemens PLM Software
  • 13. Case Study  Ben Phanco - Coppersmith  Accomplished Metal Former  Machine Tool Design  PullMax – Reciprocating Hammer  Out of production – not portable  No drawings or examples and few imagesSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 13 Siemens PLM Software
  • 14. Case Study  No examples – Just knowledge  This is the concept Power Wheel Link 1 Link 2 Pivot Link 3 Hammer ShoesSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 14 Siemens PLM Software
  • 15. Case Study  3 hours, 2 cups of coffee later…  We had a working model.Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 15 Siemens PLM Software
  • 16. ST4 Rendering and Our People  More Advanced Rendering  False shadow plane integrates model with image backgroundsSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 16 Jeff Wade - GTAC Siemens PLM Software
  • 17. ST4 Rendering and Our People  More Advanced Rendering  Added schemes predefine lights, background, and groundSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 17 Jeff Anderson - GTAC Siemens PLM Software
  • 18. ST4 Rendering and Our People  More Advanced Rendering  Several employees model for testing purposes and… funSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 18 Chris Dayton - Planning Siemens PLM Software
