South African Solid Edge ST3 Stories: Part 1 of 3

The voice of our Solid Edge Tips and Tricks series, Russell Brook, just returned from a week tour in South Africa where he demo’d ST3 to users in three cities: Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The event focused on four areas: fulfilling the vision of Synchronous Technology, demo of what’s new, managing data and CAM for Solid Edge. Users were excited about what they saw and Russ was able to capture a few of them on film. Special thanks to our partner Esteq for organizing these events.

In this three part video blog series this week, the user testimonials speak of the enthusiasm for

  1. integrated assembly and design environments of ST3

  2. ability to use 2D design intent on 3D models

  3. exploit imported data, specifically SolidWorks data

  4. improved speed on projects because of synchronous assembly and sheet metal design

In this first video, Albert Botha from ABC Designs speaks about his use of synchronous technology and how he has fully embraced the use of it. He has been self-employed for four months but has been using Solid Edge for 2.5 years. Albert has seen over 50% time savings reducing one project from 3 weeks to 1 week! With the time saved he is able to provide more value to his clients and gain more business.

Check back on Tuesday and Wednesday to hear more from our users in South Africa!
