UGS Solid Edge software is a powerful hybrid 2D/3D design system and a core component of the UGS Velocity Series(TM) portfolio that enables manufacturing companies to achieve competitive advantage through cost reduction while increasing top-line revenues.
"It's what I'll call an 'industrial strength' 3D MCAD application," said Jeff Rowe, editor, MCADCafe. "Solid Edge V20 has more of a mechanical engineering 'feel,' and Goal Seeking is a good example of this. Solid Edge V20, at least from outward appearances, seems like a good release for those that deal with big assemblies."
Solid Edge V20 features more than 170 enhancements, including:
-- Plant equipment and massive assembly design through zones, component replication and drawing review mode.
-- Design collaboration to support PLM across the value chain through new service-oriented architecture (SOA) architecture, structure editor and assembly auto-constrain.
-- Productivity improvements through Goal Seeking and tabulated drawings.
