Solid Edge - next generation product development for today's engineers

Solid Edge is an affordable, easy-to-use solution from Siemens PLM Software. It covers all aspects of the product development process including 3D design, simulation, manufacturing, data management and more. 

Solid Edge is famous for its Synchronous technology that combines the simplicity of direct modeling with the flexibility and control of parametric design.

Solid Edge 2019

Solid Edge 2019 from Siemens provides next generation product development for today’s engineers. It provides best-in-class electrical and PCB design, fully integrated simulation analysis and the latest tools for subtractive and additive manufacturing. It comes with new capabilities for Requirements Management, and a free, secure cloud-based project collaboration.

How to buy Solid Edge

Solid Edge offers flexible payment options.There are are also special offers for startups, schools and universities. 


Solid Edge NVP - added value to your Solid Edge installation

NEXTAGE Value Package (NVP) is applied knowledge from 15 years of experience working with Solid Edge.

Solid Edge NVP Configurator

The Solid Edge NVP Configator is a simple yet powerful tool for creating "custom standard" products based on so called 150 % assemblies containing all product options. 

Case study

Request for proposals were piling up at HYDRA-COMP. The solution was an automated web-based product configurator for design creation and offers based on the Solid Edge NVP Configurator.

Meet some of our Solid Edge customers


EMTW, a startup that develops a new machine for road maintenance and rescue, design their product in Solid Edge. The simulation and rendering tools are important to EMTW since they have to make sure that the vehicle lives up to the expectations - before it's built.

What's new in Solid Edge 2019

Mechanical Design

New capabilities in convergent modeling allow engineers to incorporate mesh models into their design workflow, creating real designs, not just inspirational shapes.

New manufacturing constraints support milling, casting or molding of generative designs, in addition to 3D printing, all optimized to weight and strength requirements.
New design for cost capabilities to keep product development on track and within budget.


Wiring & Harness Design

Solid Edge Wiring Design delivers wiring design and simulation tools for the rapid creation and verification of electrical systems. Solid Edge Harness Design allows rapid and intuitive harness and formboard design with automated part selection, design verification, and manufacturing report generation. Solid Edge PCB Design provides schematic capture and PCB layout, including sketch routing, hierarchical 2D/3D planning and placement and ECAD-MCAD collaboration. And Solid Edge Electrical Routing efficiently creates, routes, and organizes wires, cables, and bundles.



Introducing Solid Edge CAM Pro – a comprehensive, highly flexible system that uses the latest machining technology to efficiently program your CNC machine tools, from simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining. Associative toolpaths for parts and assemblies speed design changes and updates. In addition to traditional manufacturing processes, Solid Edge supports automated print preparation and color printing for additive manufacturing directly to your printer or a 3D printing services so you can make your ideas a reality.


Technical publications

Quickly create and publish detailed illustrations of your product designs, and publish interactive digital documents for manufacturing, installation, and maintenance work instruction packages. Associative updates keep documents in sync when product designs change.



Solid Edge offers enhanced structural and thermal simulation, including transient heat transfer. Time-based history analysis enables simulation of thermal and cooling performance. Free surface flow simulation, lighting and radiation capabilities allow digital “what if” analysis.


Solid Edge Portal

The Solid Edge Portal offers online CAD management, viewing, and collaboration—for free. With browser-based access for viewing and markup of CAD files, on any device, you can work in real time, from anywhere. Experience secure, controlled sharing of project documents and CAD files.
