Solid Edge Group Presentation

  1. 1. MAE 377 GROUP PRESENTATION: SOLID EDGE Mike Meller, Jeremy Liu, and Anthony Bandinelli
  2. 2. Introduction to Solid Edge <ul><li>First introduced by Intergraph in 1996 </li></ul><ul><li>Then purchased by UGS Corps in 1998 </li></ul><ul><li>Acquired in 2006 by Siemens AG </li></ul><ul><li>Finally renamed Siemens PLM Software </li></ul><ul><li>Currently has more than 42,000 clients and nearly 4 million licensed users </li></ul><ul><li>User growth has increased </li></ul>
  3. 3. Main Area of Application <ul><li>Solid Edge is commonly used in the mechanical engineering field </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Used most often in the Automotive Industry for its versatility in core modeling and process workflow </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Software Background <ul><li>Newest version of Solid Edge: V20 </li></ul><ul><li>Release of SE with Sychronous Technology expected at the end of this year </li></ul><ul><li>Wide selection of third-party software available from Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) </li></ul>
  5. 5. Pro/E Comparison <ul><li>The scroll wheel zooming function is the opposite of Pro/E </li></ul><ul><li>Pro/E offers full scale dimensioning in sketch mode, where Solid Edge provides manual dimensioning of all sketches through the smart dimension and “distance.” </li></ul>
  6. 6. Pros <ul><li>Auto conversion of dimensions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ex: can work in (mm) and view in (in.) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Large range of compatibility with other 3 rd party programs; enabling scenario tests for model prototypes </li></ul><ul><li>Ability known as direct modeling, where the user may alter the model geometry of a particular drawing without accessing its parametric data. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Cons <ul><li>While editing, the user cannot see how the change will interact with the successive feature </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The model is “rolled back” to where it was initially created so you cannot give constraints to nonexistent geometry </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Identification of other cons will be further discussed during the demonstration </li></ul>
  8. 8. Video <ul><li>Solid Edge V19 3D animation of an engine </li></ul>
  9. 9. References <ul><li>&quot;Cabin Car Preview 01.&quot; Youtube . 29 Oct. 2008 <http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjh8pitweco&feature=related>. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Solid Edge Version 19.&quot; Siemens . 29 Oct. 2008 <http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/images/technicom_se_v19_tcm53-22635.pdf>. </li></ul>
