Siemens Rewrites History
Over the years there have only been a few disruptive moments in the design software world.
- 2D CAD systems: 1974 mainstream (1957)
- Desktop computing using Windows NT: 1993 mainstream for CAD
- 3D solid modeling using NURBS: 1989
- Parametric modeling: 1987
- Synchronous technology: 2008 released inside Solid Edge ST1
- Cloud computing: 2000 mainstream 2006 (Amazon), 2008 (Google), 2010 (Microsoft Azure)
In the past, you needed to contact a Siemens solution partner (like Geometric Solutions) to get a quote and buy a copy of Solid Edge. Now you are able to directly purchase a Siemens Solid Edge bundle on your own without the help of a Seimens partner. Siemens is also offering a free 45 day trial of Solid Edge ST10 to try before you buy. The Siemens Solid Edge demo/trial applies to both downloaded version and the streaming version of Solid Edge.
USE DIGITAL HUMAN MODELING TO IMPROVE THE SAFETY, EFFICIENCY, AND COMFORT OF THE WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT
It probably goes without saying that human beings are critical to product lifecycles from assembly and manufacturing, to consumer use and acceptance, to maintenance and repair. This, by the way, includes the health and safety aspects of assembly operations. However, the human element is often considered late in the process, usually after production issues arise and often after workers have been injured.
ELIMINATE BUILD PROBLEMS & LATE-STAGE ENGINEERING CHANGES
Ensure product quality by understanding the impact of dimensional variation before design release – that’s the value of Variation Analysis software to your manufacturing processes. Explore the software and examine the solutions it offers by attending the next episode in our “Simulation Nation 2015” series, “Variation Analysis (VSA).
