Solid Edge

Solid Edge is a CAD software for mechanical and electrical design, simulation, manufacturing, data management, and cloud collaboration. The software was developed by Unigraphics Solutions Inc., which later became part of Siemens PLM Software. Solid Edge uses synchronous technology to combine design and editing features into a single function. This lets the user edit 3D CAD files with more flexibility and interactivity compared to traditional history-based systems. The software can create assemblies of machine parts or complex products like vehicles by allowing designers to simulate motion in their designs before committing them to production.
