Solid Edge Technical Publications
Easily create attractive illustrations and interactive technical documents
The ability to clearly communicate the correct manufacturing, installation and maintenance procedures for your designs is essential to the performance of your products and the success of your business. Using Solid Edge Technical Publications solutions, your designers can quickly create many types of technical documents—from simple illustrations for end user manuals to interactive technical documents for manufacturing and service. You can reduce the need for specialist technical authors or external services and produce top quality documents in-house.
Solid Edge Technical Publications solutions are closely integrated with Solid Edge, allowing you to work directly with your Solid Edge parts and assemblies, and eliminating the need to convert your CAD files to a different format. And changes to the original design are easily incorporated into existing documents, speeding the engineering change process and ensuring that published documents reflect the current design.
Solid Edge Technical Publications allow you to:
- Quickly create detailed illustrations of your designs
- Use animations that clearly communicate how your products work
- Publish interactive digital documents for manufacturing work instruction packages
- Create comprehensive maintenance manuals
- Publish easy-to-navigate spare parts catalogs that encourage your customers to source their spare parts directly from you
