The new release is coming your way soon and is jam-packed with a ton of new features and enhancements to advance your business and enable entirely new ways of working. 

With this release, Siemens is moving to a new October launch cadence for Solid Edge. Traditionally, the annual release of Solid Edge launched in July.

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this post, we’ll dig a bit deeper into some of the new features and enhancements that are coming your way, some of which were unveiled for the first time at our virtual Realize LIVE + User2User conference earlier this year.
