The 3YOURMIND plugin is available for Solid Edge ST7 and ST8 (and they are ready to support ST9 when it is released), you can find instructions on how to download and install the Solid Edge plugin in the attached PDF file and download the plugin from their website. Once you have the plugin installed, you are only a single button click away from taking your Solid Edge design to the 3YOURMIND portal for review and printing!
Our new online CAD technology gives customers easy access to nearly 40,000 digital downloads of our products. Featuring an interactive 3D preview, engineers can use our tool to save time and money by virtually testing digital components in a CAD environment, thereby reducing the need for physical samples and streamlining the design process.
At product item level, click on update preview, you are then able to change and move CAD drawing. If you are a registered user, you have access to download CAD drawing and/or generate a PDF data sheet that you can print or share.
Strangely, the first is something that other systems have had for some time, namely, the ability to create the exterior form of a sheet metal component using a solid model, then convert it to a sheet metal fabricated form.
Once done, you have an intelligent sheet metal model that links back to the source solid (so any changes can be propogated quickly) and one that can also be converted into a flattened form and pushed into fabrication and into drawings for documentation.
If I were choosing between the two, I would pick Solidworks. Solid Edge and Solidworks are very similar in price, utility, UI, function. You name it! I expect Solidworks to stay on the cutting edge year after year because an innovator and a brilliant businessman created Solidworks.
Chris Graham is an experienced Computer-Aided Design (CAD) draftsman and a writer. He has extensive knowledge of almost all the top CAD software available on the market these days. From simple tasks to developing a professional CAD drawing, he can do everything.
Solidworks has no similar history free modeling tech, so Solid Edge is the winner. Siemens DIS (owner of Solid Edge) develops parasolid modeling kernel what is licensed by Solidworks, but it has some nice and unique feature what is implemented only in Siemens Products, like ST.
Solid Edge is a 3D CAD, parametric feature and synchronous technology solid modeling software. It runs on Microsoft Windows and provides solid modeling, assembly modelling and 2D orthographic view functionality for mechanical designers. Through third party applications it has links to many other Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) technologies.
Originally developed and released by Intergraph in 1996 using the ACIS geometric modeling kernel, it changed to using the Parasolid kernel when it was purchased and further developed by UGS Corp in 1998. In 2007, UGS was acquired by the Automation & Drives Division of Siemens AG. UGS company was renamed Siemens Digital Industries Software on October 1, 2007.
The ordered modeling process begins with a base feature controlled by a 2D sketch, which is either a linear, revolved, lofted, or swept extrusion. Each subsequent feature is built on the previous feature. When editing, the model is "rolled back" to the point where the feature was created so that the user cannot try to apply constraints to geometry that does not yet exist. The drawback is that the user does not see how the edit will interact with the subsequent features. This is typically called "history" or "regeneration based" modeling. In both ordered and synchronous mode Solid Edge offers very powerful, easy yet stable modeling in hybrid surface/solid mode, where "Rapid Blue" technology helps the user to create complex shapes in an intuitive and easy way.
The software combines direct modeling with dimension driven design (features and synchronously solving parametrics) under the name "Synchronous Technology". Parametric relationships can be applied directly to the solid features without having to depend on 2D sketch geometry, and common parametric relationships are applied automatically.
We provide web configurators for many of our customers to embed directly into their website. These configurators allow users to configure a part or assembly, preview an interactive 3D image of it and then download it as a CAD native or neutral format file.
PARTsolutions can deliver over 100files formats. Many of our customers license these formats, making it possible for users to download a CAD file in over 100 native formats and versions from the product configurator. The majority of CAD file options will provide a zip file containing the native CAD file. Two programs, CATIA and SolidWorks, are also supported by macro files that can be downloaded; see help below to learn how to open these files.
Get Notified When Catalogs Change Designers can participate in our active catalog notification program. Sign up to get automatic email when the catalogs of your choice have been updated. You decide when to download any updated catalog and load into PARTsolutions in just a few clicks.
PARTsolutions now offers the ability to insert a model directly from your browser into your running CAD program, via the PART2CAD Direct Insert interface. When choosing PART. If you have selected the PART2CAD option for your models, you will first need to download the PART2CADstarter application in order to connect the PARTsolutions configurator to your CAD program.
When a component that has this functionality is selected, visitors will be able to open the configurator page and configure the component as desired. The appropriate Order number is automatically generated, and registered visitors may Generate a CAD model, a 3D preview and or purchase the configured part. Once generated, a link is made available for the visitor to download the model in the format of their choice. 2b1af7f3a8
