This session will cover key concepts in synchronous technology: mastering edits using Live Rules, and how to design using a combination of ordered and synchronous features. Live Rules, lets you make edits to imported models, models with few or no constraints, or changes outside the creation steps but achieve predictable results. Best practices in how to manage settings preserving conditions such as geometric or symmetry will be covered. Users will also learn how to use the advanced options for managing multiple face sets found by Live Rules. Best practices in designing with both ordered and synchronous features will be given so new users can better leverage this technology for optimizing edit performance and managing a design process.

  • 2. Doug Stainbrook  Background:  I am 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, I spent about 10 years as a designer for various industries. In 1999, I was hired as a Solid Edge Application Engineer in Philadelphia, PA. In 2000, I 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  Personal interests:  Photography, art, high-speed engraving, and website designSolid Edge.

  • 3. Executive Summary  Today’s Topics:  In this Solid Edge session, we will first take another look at the steering wheel functions and Live Rules, what each of them does, and how to make them work in your favor. Next we will compare editing models in the synchronous and ordered environments. We will also discuss when, why, and how you would move ordered features to synchronous.  Key Takeaways:  A greater understanding of the steering wheel, Live Rules, and the advantages of synchronous over ordered editing.Solid Edge.

  • 4. Steering Wheel  The steering wheel is the primary tool used to manipulate and edit 3D model geometry directly in ORIGIN synchronous technology.  Selecting faces and/or features automatically exposes the steering wheel for editing the selected geometry.BEARING KNOB There are 8 elements of the steering wheel.

  • 5. Steering Wheel Elements  Steering Wheel elements defined:  Origin  Primary Axis  Torus  Secondary Axis  Tool Plane ORIGIN  Primary Bearing  Secondary Bearing  Bearing Knobs BEARING KNOBSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 5 Siemens PLM Software
  • 6. Steering Wheel The steering wheel displays differently depending on the geometry that is selected. It presents the appropriate edit tools for that selection. 2D Steering Wheel Cylinder Tool 3D Steering Wheel 3D Face Tool Solid Edge.

  • 7. Live Rules  Live Rules is the proprietary relationship recognition functionality that is a major component of synchronous modeling.  When elements are selected for Move or Rotate, Solid Edge automatically locates and maintains specific relationships found within the model. Maintain Symmetry Maintain Coplanar Faces about Base Planes Same Radius if Possible Maintain Tangent Faces Local Symmetry Keep Orthogonal to Base if Possible Maintain Concentric Faces Lock to Base Reference Consider Coordinate SystemsMaintain Parallel Faces Custom Axis Consider Sketch Planes Tangent Touching Maintain Coplanar Axis Consider Reference Planes Maintain Perpendicular FacesSolid Edge.

  • 8. Live Rules Live Rules – what do the colors mean?  White background = Disabled Live Rule  Pale Orange background = Enabled Live Rule  After a Move or Rotation is started:  Green background = Found and Maintained Live Rule  Red Outline = Found but Disabled Live RuleSolid Edge.

  • 10. Comparing Ordered vs. Synchronous modeling  We have an Ordered design of a fuel tank for a lawn mower.  We need to make several changes to the design.Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 10 Siemens PLM Software
  • 11. Comparing Ordered vs. Synchronous modeling  Ordered models require interrogation to know what features to modify.Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 11 Siemens PLM Software
  • 12. Comparing Ordered vs. Synchronous modeling  Ordered models require rolling back the feature tree to make edits to the model.  High risk of affecting downstream features! DEMO 2Solid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 12 Siemens PLM Software
  • 13. Comparing Ordered vs. Synchronous modeling  Same model with features moved to synchronous  Edits are localized  No rolling back the model  No re-computing featuresSolid Edge. Design better. DEMO 3 © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 13 Siemens PLM Software
  • 14. When to move ordered features to synchronous  Design changes are required to the bike steering yokeSolid Edge. Design better. © Siemens AG 2011. All Rights Reserved.Page 14 Siemens PLM Software
  • 15. When to move ordered features to synchronous  Ordered models require understanding of how they were created to know how to edit them.  Profiles of ordered features require strict relationships to edit predictably.

  • 16. When to move ordered features to synchronous  Moving a few key features to synchronous can greatly improve productivity.  Edits can be made in a fraction of the time and will be more reliable.Solid Edge.
