This year, we’re taking a deep dive into everything that’s new in the Solid Edge 2023 release in a series of blog posts focused on the most noteworthy new features and enhancements. In this post, we’ll cover the latest computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) enhancements now available in Solid Edge 2023.
Transform your manufacturing and maximize your design data with the powerful, automated tools of Siemens’ fully integrated CAD/CAM solutions in Solid Edge. New manufacturing enhancements for Solid Edge 2023 include Multi-Axis Roughing for 5-Axis Machining, a new Rotary Machining Add-on for 4-Axis machining, Smart Machine Kit Simulation, and much more.
New Multi-Axis Roughing for 5-Axis Machining in Solid Edge CAM Pro provides more efficient material removal while saving you time. A new Rotary Machining Add-on for 4-Axis machining and new Wire EDM functionality improves your ability to create shapes, even those that would otherwise be too expensive or even impossible. The Smart Machine Kits library provides easy access to standardized, professionally built machine simulation kits.
Enhanced manufacturing capabilities
In Solid Edge 2023, more efficient material removal is made possible by new Multi-Axis Roughing for 5-Axis Machining, enabling users to spend less time creating CNC programs while enjoying better toolpaths and faster machining throughput. The new Rotary Machining Add-on for 4-Axis machining improves users’ ability to create shapes, even previously impossible ones. With the new, state-of-the-art Wire EDM functionality, users can create shapes that are expensive or even impossible with other machining techniques. The add-on product includes an extensive database of Wire EDM machines.
Smart machine simulation kits
Standardized, professionally built machine simulation kits are available in an easy-to-access library through the Post Hub. The Smart Machine Kits library, which is available as an add-on product, eliminates the need for time-consuming, expensive custom-built simulation kits.
Post Hub enhancements
Enhancements to Post Hub, Siemens’ cloud-based database post-processer database, make it easier for a user than ever before. An expanded, modern Side Bar, including Support Resources, Training, and Request Forms, improves the Post Hub user experience. The more responsive Side Bar gives users more control of their postprocessor search. Additionally, Post Hub can now be used as a repository for things other than postprocessors, including best practice documents, technical libraries, and much more.
