Solid Edge and Complex Geometry

Solid Edge has a complete set of history-based tools and offers legendary capability in the areas of sheet metal and 2D drawings. In addition to these traditional history-based tools and techniques, Solid Edge also has the unique capabilities of synchronous technology, a set of order-independent enhancements on top of direct editing. Parts can be entirely or partially built using either synchronous or history-based methods, and these features can be edited in the context of an assembly. With the option to move between synchronous and history-based paradigms, Solid Edge delivers the unique capability to tailor best practices to the specific type of work a company needs done today.
