Multi-body modeling in Solid Edge ST5
Solid Edge ST5 from Siemens PLM Software is said to take synchronous design to a new level with multibody modeling. With this integrated approach, imported assemblies can be consolidated into a single part file to better represent purchased components, it says. Parts can be split or merged, providing a flexible way to adapt designs to different manufacturing processes. With this and many other new capabilities, users can accelerate design, speed revisions and improve imported 2D and 3D data reuse, the company says.
