"Ease of work for replacement parts"

What do you like best?

The most helpful about solidedge is how fast you can gain a good workflow. So once you're familiar with the basic tools, desinging how really fast. Also once you have to modify or update any part of the desing to fit better or any new requirement, changing any measure or adding parts is really easy and fast. Thats relly helpfull for 3d printing and rapid prototyping. Gicen such speeds you can get more time before you present your work at school or a client, improving even more yours desings

What do you dislike?

For begginers maybe it a little bit hard to learn were evrything is and how to go around certain desing challenges. Also going from an older version to a new one cna be really frustring to re locate everything and gain back the speed you once had.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a little more time and practice before desining real parts. So afterwards your desing speed will be much better.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Actually i'm 3d printing replacemnt parts for cars. Some parts like old dashboard or clusters were youneed really good skills to achieve the same complex desings and copy exactly all the curves. Also I can get some mockups to preview or 3d print to test and gain a lot of time in the prototyping stage. Once in production any error I have in measurements can be retro fitted and quickly changed to get the best parts I could. When desining for old cars its really easy to take some measurments and copy complex shapes to validate the viability of the part.

"SOLID SOFTWARE FOR SHARP EDGE OF MIND FOR DESIGNERS"

What do you like best?

As it is continuously updated by its founders i like all the latest versions of SOLID EDGE from the year of 2017, Specially its unique modeling method "SYNCHRONOUS" and "ORDERED", there are no other softwares has this type of facility, There are too much userfriendly commands availabe which i like mostly in its sketching mode like line, circle, pattern etc. also i like its SYNCHRONOUS modeling interface, the best thing is you can switch any time from "SYNCHRONOUS" to "ORDERED" or from "ORDERED" to "SYNCHRONOUS" at the same model, overall good software..

What do you dislike?

As any designer come from solidworks interface, it is quite difficult to be friendly with SOLIDEDGE, because there too many steps to perform a single command, it will increase the time of modeling job, Also there no proper MESHING system is availabe as compare with solidworks in its simulation tool, Pricing is also quite higher than other available softwares but for begginers it is good to start and learn..

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This software is recommended to the new designers as their mind are fresh they can easily accepts the interface of SYNCHRONOUS method of modeling, it is best but difficult to old designers who are familiar with traditional ORDERED method..

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems like sketching, Modeling, drafting and detailing, Simulation and analysis of product design i am solving now with this software, The benefits i have realized that the grafics of model images are quite good than other softwares, also the timing of meshing in FEA tool is faster than other softwares, drafting interface are best as compare with other modeling softwares but not as good as autocad, This is best software for beginners, and small industries..

"Very good software, hard for beginners but"

What do you like best?

I like that the posibilities are pretty much endless, you can do a wide variety of designs with this software. You can start your design and sent it to the printer all in one, focusing your attention in the task!

What do you dislike?

I think the interface is a little bit complicated for someone new, it could be a little bit more user friendly. The community helps a lot, but could use a little more help or guidance to do basic tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take it easy, and ask if you need help!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work with 3d printers, I can design, test and print my files really quick without the need of aditional softwares, It doenst take up a lot of space in my computer and it runs fast as I dont need much more...before i needed 3 sotfwares and move the file around a lot, now i just open solid and i'm good to go

"solid edge review"

What do you like best?

Extraordinarily its unique showing system "SYNCHRONOUS" and "Mentioned", there are the same virtual items has this kind of office, There are an abundance of userfriendly bearings accessible which I like generally in its illustration mode like line, circle, plan, etc moreover I like its SYNCHRONOUS exhibiting interface, the best thing is you can change at whatever point from "SYNCHRONOUS" to "Mentioned" or from "Mentioned" to "SYNCHRONOUS" at a comparative model, for the most part incredible programming..

What do you dislike?

The reproductions and gathering is very moderate might be a result of the designs yet that can be kept aside as it is an illustration instrument for the most part.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The huge main part of the structure world, who can manage the cost of it seem to have headed toward Solid Works, anyway I accept that Solid Edge has, in a manner of speaking, the edge on Solid Works. I think that its simpler to work with and is increasingly instinctive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solid Edge enables me to work in all respects rapidly and unequivocally. It likewise enables me to interface in all respects successfully with makers and apparatus creators alike.

"the best software"

What do you like best?

As it is constantly refreshed by its authors I like all the most recent variants of SOLID EDGE from the time of 2017, Specially its exceptional demonstrating technique "SYNCHRONOUS" and "Requested", there are no different virtual products has this kind of office, There are an excessive amount of userfriendly directions availabe which I like for the most part in its drawing mode like line, circle, design and so on additionally I like its SYNCHRONOUS displaying interface, the best thing is you can change whenever from "SYNCHRONOUS" to "Requested" or from "Requested" to "SYNCHRONOUS" at a similar model, by and large great programming..

What do you dislike?

Since Siemens purchased the product they have been expelling usefulness step by step making it increasingly hard to utilize. Precedents: 1. When drafting and in Draw in View mode you can never again alter your sketch by putting measurements on the sketch and changing the measurement. 2. While adjusting a section within a get together the Update order never again refreshes the connections in the get together. 3. Can never again change an 'inches' measurement by including or subtracting mm's. (units must be in inches). 4. Can never again spare documents in ASCII design. I envision the usefulness was removed with the goal that they can get more individuals to purchase updates. Eager or simply bumbling?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I put in a long time working SolidWorks and Solid Edge next to each other. A few things were equivalent, a few things were quicker in SolidWorks, yet I discovered Solid Edge to increasingly viable by and large.

It requires investment to learn Synchronous, yet the time put will rapidly satisfy in quicker plan and quicker structure changes.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an independent 3D CAD specialist I work for clients on area and utilize their product. I began doing this around 10 years prior and took a shot at an extraordinary assortment of ventures. I found that no simple to utilize record the executives programming was accessible for independent companies. Thus we created Drawingmanager. Joining Drawingmanager without hardly lifting a finger of information field organization and the utilization of preselects in SE and the document security SE offers sealed to be a superb method to oversee and recover drawing records. Drawingmanager naturally every set timeframe for example like clockwork peruses out or refreshes the information fields of the spared records. Thus we have turned into a Siemens Software and Technology Partner.

"super good software"

What do you like best?

Uncommonly its one of a kind displaying strategy "SYNCHRONOUS" and "Requested", there are no different virtual products has this sort of office, There are an excess of userfriendly directions availabe which I like for the most part in its drawing mode like line, circle, design and so on additionally I like its SYNCHRONOUS demonstrating interface, the best thing is you can change whenever from "SYNCHRONOUS" to "Requested" or from "Requested" to "SYNCHRONOUS" at a similar model, generally great programming..

What do you dislike?

My singular abhorrences are that a huge amount of the headway between updates is to suit engineers, which I am unquestionably not. It is moreover excessive to keep awake with the most recent, in any case it is an instrument I necessity for my trade.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Attempt strong edge as it will make structuring, drawing, get together and reproduction works simpler for the client at unbelievable dimensions.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Structuring, drawing, amassing parts to make a finished machine part and furthermore reproductions of a kinematic framework or any working or versatile part makes work feel like paradise for the client.

"Great product"

What do you like best?

Once you learn how to use the program, you can draw really fast. Also assembley is really good. There are lots of pre deigned parts that are really usefull, just like car parts, or nuts, washer, barrels, 3d pinter parts,

What do you dislike?

Learning curve is kind of hard,you should try not to give up at the begining. Just keep up learning and this will be a great too for hobbyists at least.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

dont give up at start, just continue using despite of being hard at the begining

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it mostly for aeromodelling. So i can 3d print my own parts for my planes.

Benefits, really fast and acurate modeling

"Seimen's Solid Edge V19"

What do you like best?

Solid edge is a leading software available in market for mechanical designing. It is best for beginners, who are very new for designing. It is user friendly and very easy to use. We can do part modelling, surface modelling, assemblies and engineering 2D drawing. While 2D drawing its easy to move, rotate and copy diagram. It xan be run by any version of window's computer

What do you dislike?

It is lagging a bit when compared to catia and NX. Its rendering option is also not up to the mark.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is best software for mechanical designing, every mechanical engineering student need to start designing using this software. It is must go if work lies in part designing and surface designing

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for 3D part modelling and it's assemblies.

"Using Solid Edge during Bachelor studies"

What do you like best?

The 3D/solid design environment is rather easy to use.

What do you dislike?

The whole software package is not user friendly especially the 2D drawing environment. Despite the difficulties that every student used Solid Edge (probably this was the cheapest for the university) I changed to SolidWorks after 1 year. The biggest disadvantage is in the software architecture. There were several problems with the student version during installation and the versions are not compatible with each other, can't always recognize older SE or step/stl files.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

There are no benefits because for simple designs SolidWorks is more user friendly and has no compromises in all environments means for this purpose it is better than SE. And for surface design or more mathematical applications CATIA is either a better choice.

"The complete answer to your designing solutions"

What do you like best?

Siemens Solid Edge is a mainstream design software that enhances design engineering solutions. Apart from designing it also does simulations and assembly which comes in good hand for an engineering working in computer aided designing.

What do you dislike?

The simulations and assembly is quite slow may be because of the graphics but that can be kept aside as it is a drawing tool mostly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try solid edge as it will make designing, drawing, assembly and simulation works easier for the user at unimaginable levels. How will the work looks like is picture perfect conveyed through the interface

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Designing, drawing, assembling parts to make a completed machine part and also simulations of a kinematic system or any working or movable part makes work feel like heaven for the user.

Accesibility, I like to have the different axis clearly marked for better understanding.

What do you dislike?

Icons seem a bit messy. It should be a bit more user friendly. Other than that, i think it's a good tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the product. I'ts really useful and, after a bit of trial and error, you can master it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I’m trying to find the best software for 3D design and 3D printing. My business needs some expensive parts and i think i may be able to print them.

"Getting worse instead of better"

What do you like best?

Simple tools for fast creation of models. Simple tools for creating model assemblies.

What do you dislike?

Since Siemens bought the software they have been removing functionality gradually making it more difficult to use. Examples: 1. When drafting and in Draw in View mode you can no longer modify your sketch by placing dimensions on the sketch and changing the dimension. 2. When modifying a part inside of an assembly the Update command no longer updates the relationships in the assembly. 3. Can no longer change an 'inches' dimension by adding or subtracting mm's. (units must be in inches). 4. Can no longer save files in ASCII format. I imagine the functionality was taken away so that they can get more people to buy upgrades. Greedy or just incompetent?

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good if you want to pay max price for the highest function module. Check out other software first if max functionality is not needed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mechanical design problems. Creates needed drawings for manufacture.

"An excellent software"

What do you like best?

This program is very practical to design many kinds of products, it also has the advantage that it can be sent directly to print the piece

What do you dislike?

The design with Synchronous Technology, can disorient those who use it for the first time, I think more documentation is necessary.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very interesting software that allows you to migrate files without problems

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to solid Edge you can reduce and improve deadlines when importing parts from other programs

"Will I recommend solid edge to a friend ?"

What do you like best?

The finish coloring and the ability to see the projects part fits and splashed together before printing the pieces

What do you dislike?

SolidEdge is not a quick program to work on or learn fast.

It got its complicated command and has no short cuts of using the tools as for example typing command, that doesn’t exist.

I really wish that they would develop such typing command to make the task fast and simple for quick projects.

Besides it does freez once a while and might lose your work at some point and start alover.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Do not consider it

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not anything particular, I think they should do a lot of updates to be competing with other software

"Solidedge underrated software"

What do you like best?

1.Accessing tools is very easy.

2.Comparative to catia working with solid edge consumes less time for part designing.

3.Modifying the design is easy.

4.Its easy to study the design tree.

5.Drawing/sketching part is easy, you can move relocate very easily.

6.Assembling parts is much easy.

7.User friendly, most colleges prefer this software for students.

8.Low cost

9.It does strain your body, we can relax and operate whereas when you compare with catia for each function u need multiple steps.

What do you dislike?

1. Sheet modeling is not good

2. Rendering is another drawback when you compare to NX.

3.Complex designing is difficult.

4.Not much variety of tools are available.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If your new to designing then first preference must be solidedge. If your work is restricted to part design and assembly then go for solidedge. For rendering work I suggest NX amd for aerodynamic modelling(sheet modelling) go for catia.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it for part designing or drawing. It help get my work done fast.

"Very usefull for the beginners which makes them to understand the variety of softwares "

What do you like best?

The diagrams can be in 3-D and is very useful in learning the data in every step and makes the things in a pictorial form . it can be used by anyone having best features and making the features useful .Design of a model, stimulation of a model, data management, publications. It uses the defined parameters and obtain the required model

What do you dislike?

Staring it is difficult to understand and makes things complicated. Licence is paid. So access is denied to common use. The graphics performance is not to the mark. If the windows version is high it takes time to be in that part and does not match it

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Solid edge is very beneficial for the build up of the model . Where a individual pieces can be converted into a single model. making the graphic level improved and useful.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is used in building the component and making the 3-D component of a product. As told earlier it is not good for the higher version of the system and it has most of the software in the windows 7 version. It is not developed to the higher version of the system.

"Design an electric window motor"

What do you like best?

You have many options to develop a figure what makes easier to do the details without so many problems. You have the option to create a map or to create an explded view in a few period of time. It is an easy and complete programme to work with.

What do you dislike?

We have so many problems to get points connected when you draw on the xy plane so we have to repet more times than expected the figures. There were few video tutorials if you compare with other designs programmes. It hadn't have so many materials interface options.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for an easy programme, Solid Edge could be a good beginning

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With solid edge I could create and print the piece I need. Although, I have been developing proyects to create 3D pieces using solid edge as design programme. My exploded view could be imported to other programmes and use it on word.

"2D version is powerful but takes some getting used to"

What do you like best?

It is limited to 2D and it is free; can't beat that price! It imports DWG files well most of the time, though not perfectly. The smart cursor (snaps) is really powerful and intuitive. When used along with manual entry of dimensions, it can be efficient and powerful. It uses tabbed views (for model space and drawings), similar to most other CAD programs on the market today. Interface can be customized. It runs smoothly. It was developed by a large company, which means it should be around for a while.

What do you dislike?

It functions differently than other CAD programs I've used, so it takes a while to learn. Drawing templates that come with the program are limited, but it is easy create your own. Occasionally it has trouble importing DWG files that have 3D elements, but not any more than other CAD programs I've used.

It doesn't use vector fonts, opting for the use of TrueType fonts within Windows. This doesn't bother me, but some old-school cad drafters may find it frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider using this to import and work with other file formats. It will give you an opportunity to get acclimated to the interface and how it functions. Then you can appreciate the power of this program and possibly find it useful for creating 2D (or 3D if you want to step up to the full version).

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Inexpensive CAD program for opening and working with DWG files. It has worked well on different Windows computers, including laptops.

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to learn and use and I like the ability to switch between synchronous and ordered modeling environments.

What do you dislike?

Solid Edge can act up sometimes when integrated with our insight server. It can confuse itself and break links which can be tedious to fix.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solid Edge allows us to quickly create engineering models and drawings to very accurate degrees. We are able to quickly update drawings when a new revision is necessary. We are a company that has to have a quick turn around on products so ease of use is extremely important.

"The best parasolid software !"

What do you like best?

What I appreciated the most about SolidEdge is the user interface which makes it really easy to learn.

Way better than Solidworks I think!

Lots of nice features, and my experience showed that it's easier to put a model into production thanks to SolidEdge than to Solidworks (Sorry Dassault systems ;) )

What do you dislike?

Well the only thing I could dislike with solidedge is its Surface design mode which is not really intuitive yet and could be improved a lot, even if it's not the main feature and reason why we use SolidEdge.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get the tutorials from Siemens :)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to SolidEdge I was able to put a 3D model from the first phase to the production model.

SolidEdge was able to tell me how I could improve my model to make it feasable for the molding.

I highly recommand this software if you want to do precise modelling and production/feasible models.

"I used solid Edge in my PhD research "

What do you like best?

Solid edge help in the 3D modeling of objects. We can print them and the results are outstanding.

What do you dislike?

I needed to learn about it before I started so I took me some time to do that and in a lot of times I was not able to reach my goals because of the lack of experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use video tutorials if available to learn easily.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It helped me get objects from 3D models and my purpose was to compare the objects when they deform locally.

"Solid Edge ST8 - It gives me the edge on the competition"

What do you like best?

It is wonderfully intuitive and has so much to offer in designing and sculpting. To be honest it has far more features than I could ever need. I have been using Solid Edge since its old version 3, 25 versions ago, and I couldn't do without it. Also the vendors I bought it from - Majenta PLM, are very helpful and respond very quickly to any queries I may have. It also meshes seamlessly with Key Shot rendering software.

What do you dislike?

My only dislikes are that a lot of the development between upgrades is to suit engineers, which I am not. It is also quite costly to keep the license up to date, however it is a tool I need for my trade.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The vast bulk of the design world, who can afford it appear to have gone over to Solid Works, however I believe that Solid Edge has, as it were, the edge on Solid Works. I find it easier to work with and is more intuitive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a freelance design consultant working mainly in the luxury goods market, designing anything from writing instruments, bags, hardware, watches , clocks, furniture and retail design. Solid Edge allows me to work very quickly and precisely. It also allows me to interact very effectively with manufacturers and tool makers alike.

"Solid Edge Precision's Best Friend"

What do you like best?

Solid Edge it's an amazing design programme for working with precision. The programme is able to show you when geometry has some kind of error or when you designed something that is physically impossible to build.

The programme increases your geometrical brain ability forcing you to break down everything you imagine into planes, curves, lines and points.

It also helps you to calculate the weight of materials, the resistance and other physical properties that are really useful in the design world.

What do you dislike?

The final piece you get in Solid Edge is not as pretty as other softwares may give you. It doesn't look realistic, but when your looking for technical specs you don't care about aesthetics that much.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Excellent for precision design, easy to learn, friendly and logic, definitely not for rendering.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this programme for designing plastic packaging and I realized that the precision that gives it's unbelievable, the error range is very small, and the result of the designs were amazing.
