  • Planning the move to 3D design
    A few do's and don'ts speed the transition from 2D drawing to 3D modeling. Transitioning from 2D to 3D modeling takes a commitment and a plan, but the investment pays off. To get the most benefit from 3D-modeling systems such as Solid Edge, plan on training, a quiet place to work, and support
  • The Changing Shape of 3D Modeling
    The Changing Shape of 3D Modeling Direct modelers provide a hands-on way to create and edit solid models. An emerging technology called "direct modeling " provides a new way to interact with solid models. As the approach becomes increasingly diverse, it can contain several different technologies
  • Good Solid Modeling, Bad FEA
    One of the latest methods of slashing development time is to use the 3D models that CAD users create as a basis for finite-element analysis. In a perfect world, performing finite-element analysis on these models directly, rather than recreating data for this purpose, lets analysts concentrate more
  • Introduction to AutoCAD 2006 2D and 3D Design
    Introduction to AutoCAD 2006 2D and 3D Design. Taking the reader step by step through the features of AutoCAD, this practical, structured guide introduces principles and 2D technical drawings, then goes on to demonstrate construction of 3D solid model drawings and rendering of 3D models, and more.
  • Solid Edge Structural Frames and Weldments (.pdf)
    and then automatically generating a 3D solid model of the frame.
  • Software allows working in 2D, 3D, or both
    Components, introduced in Solid Edge V17, allow creating 2D representations from existing 3D components, which can then be used in layouts. The hybrid feature lets engineers do what makes design sense rather than being restricted to only one model type. Users begin with the Virtual Component Structure
  • 3D Modeler Lets Users Exploit the API
    Software review: 3D Modeler Lets Users Exploit the API Autodesk Inventor 2010 is a 3D solid-modeling software package with a lot to offer. In fact, with every release the developer adds a new host of tools and enhancements. An often-overlooked tool is the application-programming interface (API
  • Software Review: Solid Edge 2008 With Synchronous Technology
    At the core of Solid Edge 2008 is a new technology that definitely pushes the CAD software head and shoulders above the crowd of either explicit or history-based programs. I have not seen anything as exciting and innovative since the introduction of parametric modeling in the late 80s. Called
