Solid Edge 2021

All the features you want. All the value you need.

 Solid Edge 2021 from Siemens provides the speed you need to get the most out of your entire engineering process—maximizing your productivity while decreasing your costs.

With an emphasis on usability enhancements, Solid Edge 2021 users experience productivity gains with Solid Edge 3D CAD and Solid Edge CAM Pro. New capabilities in Solid Edge Wiring Design enable users to prepare the layout of industrial control panels, and new shape search and concept modeling capabilities make finding existing components and developing new ideas faster and easier than ever before.

Easy, Creative, Amazing
Mechanical Design

Design at the speed of creative thought, with new subdivision modeling, lightning-fast reverse engineering, a new user interface powered by artificial intelligence, and an intelligent 3D model search engine.

New subdivision modeling: Develop distinctively unique products based on organic shapes without the need for expert knowledge with new subdivision modeling for next-generation design.

Faster reverse engineering

Faster reverse engineering 

Reduce time spent on reverse engineering with lightning-fast performance enhancements including deviation analysis. 

         Adaptive UI

Adaptive UI

Improve productivity with new adaptive UI capabilities that harness artificial intelligence to predict next steps based on user behavior.

Faster performance

Faster performance

Faster performance and memory load time when developing large assemblies. New support for embedded components inside the assembly with no file reference, for simplified supplier data workflow.

         Intelligent model search

Intelligent model search

Streamline the process of finding 3D models using intelligent search functions through integration with 3DFindit.com for Solid Edge.

Solid Edge 2021 is, in my opinion, the best Solid Edge release in years! There are a lot of things that will make the design process easier for our engineers. It's a major update.

Simulation


Optimize and validate your designs digitally with tighter integration between flow and structural simulation.

Simulation

Better integration between flow simulation and structural simulation help create a more accurate digital twin. Add fluid pressure and temperatures results from Simcenter FLOEFD for Solid Edge for analysis in Solid Edge Simulation. Digitally validating and optimizing parts, assemblies and complete systems early in the design process reduces the need for physical prototypes, saving time and costs.

Manufacturing


Speed up NC programming with a searchable postprocessor database, new fast roughing and adaptive milling.

Manufacturing

Maximize machine-floor investments by getting the most out of manufacturing equipment with a new searchable online database of postprocessors.

Nesting

Maximize machine-floor investments by getting the most out of manufacturing equipment with a new searchable online database of postprocessors.

Multi Axis Roughing

Maximize machine-floor investments by getting the most out of manufacturing equipment with a new searchable online database of postprocessors.

Technical Publications


Create high-quality documents and illustrations, faster. Directly from your 3D models.

Technical Publications

Open, save and revise data from Teamcenter, Siemens’ powerful PLM solution, with tight integration to ensure your working with the right data, every time. Go from engineering to documentation quickly and seamlessly working directly with Solid Edge 3D models; leveraging the digital twin ensures all changes to the original design are easily incorporated into existing publications.


Data Management


Take control of your data, saving time and money, with new rapid concept modeling and shape search capabilities.

Technical Publications

Concept Modeling

Rapidly create and evaluate multiple design scenarios with Teamcenter as the backbone.

Shape Search

Search for parts based on shape, eliminate redesign and remanufacturing costs of an existing part.

Requirements Management

Systematically and effectively track and report customers’ and regulatory design requirements.

Cloud-Based Collaboration


Next-generation cloud collaboration is here.

Cloud Based Collaboration

Synchronize files with cloud storage, while you work; view, measure and markup any computer-aided design (CAD) on any device; securely share projects with anyone; and, review designs in augmented reality (AR) on phones and tablets.
