In this Solid Edge hands-on session, we will take a look at some of the new tools offered in ST4 draft environment. These tools include formatting Parts lists by merging cells, splitting cells, aspect ratio, rotating cells and adding multi-line titles. Balloons can now be stacked balloons for Fastener Systems to improve the look of the drawing.

    • Conclusions As with all Solid Edge releases, a strong focus is placed on increasing usability of the 2D drafting tool. Solid Edge drawings are compliant with industry standards, but you have complete control over drawing view, dimensions, and annotations characteristics to accommodate specific company or customer needs. Solid Edge Draft is a complete world-class drafting tool designed to build drawings the way a company needs to work.Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011.
