“Solid Edge is easy to learn and use, from interface to the individual tools I needed to learn a wide range of skills including complex surfacing, solid modelling, assemblies, and engineering drawings. Solid Edge allowed me to do everything I needed to design and build a highly-engineered and competitive, championship-winning Greenpower car.”

Advanced product development capabilities
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.
Training that fits your needs
Get free access to topic-based or project-based tutorials, online self-paced courses and interactive learning resources. Training materials can be used to learn Solid Edge on your own, or to supplement classroom learning. Students can also achieve Solid Edge Certification, a competitive edge when applying to jobs.
A vibrant online and offline community
Access our online Solid Edge User Community, including a dedicated forum for students. Learning Solid Edge also gives you the opportunity to participate in a variety of projects and competitions, including the Greenpower Challenge and FIRST® Robotics Competition.
