Solid Edge ST4 delivers new ways to accelerate machine design by eliminating pre-planning, speed revisions by eliminating model regeneration, and improve imported 2D and 3D data re-use. With Solid Edge ST4 utilizing both synchronous technology and ordered methods in a single, integrated system, new users can adopt 3D faster, yet experienced professionals have all the power they need for any machine design task.
Solid Edge ST4 is the first mainstream 3D CAD system to employ the mature, lightweight JT data format in assembly design, expanding your ability to work in a multi-CAD environment. With enhanced third-party translators and 3D PDF creation, designers can collaborate more effectively with customers and suppliers.
Simulation in Solid Edge ST4 makes it easier to analyze and optimize designs that include sheet metal parts, as well as thin-walled parts. New capabilities utilize fast-solving 2D mesh elements created from sheet metal mid-surfaces, giving designers faster results for complex designs that help reduce material costs and the need for physical prototypes.
We recognize that drawings are the key deliverable for many companies, and continue to focus on reducing drawing production time. New features like improved parts lists, dimension display control, and text boxes with bullets and numbering accelerate the creation of drawings and reduce engineering costs.
