Solid Edge Model Based Definition enables the production of a complete digital definition of parts and/or assemblies using a 3D model, moving users to a fully digitalized manufacturing and design environment. Annotated 3D models are far easier to understand than complex drawings, which reduces time spent on engineering documentation and drives downstream validation and manufacturing efforts. This can result in a paperless design office that provides less amendment work, faster time to manufacturing, quicker documentation, and clearer manufacturing communication.
|Using Solid Edge, I can handle the many changes and variants that occur in the design process much faster than in the past. The possibility to model parts within an assembly, as well as the integrated data management functions, offer a big advantage.
