  • Is available to any active maker, CAD enthusiast, or design challenge competitor interested in using CAD to bring their ideas to life

Note: Files created in this edition cannot be opened in commercial versions of Solid Edge and 2D drawings are watermarked, but your designed parts and assemblies can be 3D printed so you can easily create prototypes.

Design parts, assemblies and sheet metal. Capabilities include automated drafting, exploded view creation, animation, advanced rendering and simulation. And with our unique synchronous technology, you can focus more on engineering and design concepts, not your software.
