Solid Edge Stream technology defined the model for CAD productivity that the industry copied. Stream/XP takes user interaction to a new level, making Solid Edge the easiest to adopt of all mechanical CAD products.
More than just a "look and feel", the Stream/XP interface removes the need for unnecessary decisions.
Logical inference engines recommend next steps, intuitively consider required geometry and make recommendations about dimensioning and other operations based on cursor position and selected features for a given situation.
Enabling these unmatched levels of productivity is Solid Edge's SmartStep ribbon bar. SmartStep guides you through the feature creation process, presenting design decisions in a logical sequence, filtering decisions that can be taken for granted and letting you easily review and change decisions to optimize your designs.
Through this unparalleled ease of use and adoption, you spend less time fighting the CAD system and more time focusing on your designs.
Solid Edge removes the roadblocks to the business and productivity benefits of 3D by making the evolution significantly less expensive and easier. Using Solid Edge's simple four-step program, you can evolve from 2D to 3D design, with its inherently higher levels of productivity and corporate profitability, at a pace that makes most sense for your business. Solid Edge's four easy steps to 3D are:
Step 1 - Get the job done today, while moving to 3D at your own pace
Step 2 - Quickly turn simple 2D geometry into intelligent, real 3D parts
Step 3 - Apply the power of the new Solid Edge hybrid 2D/3D design workflow
Step 4 - Move to full 3D design when ready
Solid Edge provides a proven set of focused tools and workflows to evolve through each of these steps as and when appropriate, while continuing to maintain the intellectual data, user education and process knowledge captured during the previous step.
