"In addition to its modeling capabilities, the true strength of Solid Edge was apparent as we worked with NASA and other industry mentors who used competitor products. The openness of Solid Edge enabled us to import data seamlessly, output it quickly to our 3D printer and share models with others."

Mike Evans, Design and Drafting Instructor Huntsville Center of Technology
