Reverse Engineering: Seamlessly scan, edit, and produce products with new capabilities.
Many teams design products utilizing components imported from other CAD systems. With the rapid growth of high-resolution 3D scanners, even legacy parts designed on the drawing board can be digitally represented and modified to suit contemporary designs without complete reconstruction. Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition delivers tools which support reverse engineering workflows.
Generative Design: Create the optimum design between weight and strength using topology optimization.
Supplementing powerful design tools with topology optimization, generative design speeds creation of lighter components perfectly suited for immediate manufacture via today’s additive processes (update to premium version). Or use Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition (premium version) to further refine the shape for more traditional manufacturing.
3. From start to finish, simulation tools to meet your needs
By starting simulation early in design, changes are made when they are easiest, time-to-manufacture is shortened, and cost-to-manufacture can be reduced. And accurate simulation of complete models reduce the number of physical prototypes and further reduce time and cost.
4. Direct output of models to your 3D printer
Solid Edge SHINING 3D Edition can support output of your part models to 3D Printers using the 3D Print command. Write out your parts to .stl and .3MF formats, or send your parts directly to the Microsoft 3D Builder app. This allows you to print in-house with automated print preparation, including color printing capability.
