Enroute to ST4 – How the Synchronous Technology is different (part 5/5)

Concept number 6….&7

Combining linear and non-linear modes.

How do i make edits easier? By allowing the coexistence of linear and non-linear in the same ecosystem.

 

You work for several years in a linear fashion and want to continue working with this approach. Solid Edge recognize that models can be:

  • 100% Linear
  • 100% Non-Linear
  • Or a mix of both modes

For this reason ST3 introduces the concept of integrated design. Allowing you to mix the two types of design to suit your needs.

The synchronous environment is at the top of the Pathfinder.

The traditional linear environment is at the bottom.

The synchronous features can be edited from the linear mode using:

  • The steering wheel
  • The control handle of the procedural features
  • With PMI dimensions.

Concept number 7

Working in the context of the assembly

How easy and quickly edit your models? By allowing access to the contents of the part directly from the context of the assembly.

In a traditional design, features are boxes that contain information, these boxes are then stacked in a part. The parts are themselves stacked in assemblies which are also stacked in subassembly.

To edit a part in its context, you need to open boxes, like Russian dolls.

A technique often used in CAD software is to open the parts in its own editing window. In doing so, the part is no longer in its context which limits the editing possibilities.

Another technique used, is to simulate the assembly environment within a part to compensate for the lack of accessibility.

What if the assembly was your design context to create parts?

At the basis of its development, Solid Edge have always favoured the design and editing of documents in the context of their use. Different tools have been developed to allow you to use this natural approach. This makes working in the assembly more fluid and transparent.

The Synchronous Technology push this concept of working in the context of the assembly further, by allowing you to break down the walls of each part, keeping only the structure, giving you direct access to the geometry of one or more parts.

  • Peer variables
  • Geometry association
  • Inter-part copy (6 options)
  • Inter-part relationships
  • The steering wheel
  • Selection manager

By working directly in the context of the assembly, it allows you to adopt good practices to reduce the possibility of errors, while maintaining the structure of your product.

If need to use the tools at your disposal to restructure your assembly.

Those seven concepts, helps you better understand how Solid Edge can be distinguish from other CAD tools. But you will have to make the effort to see behind the technique or the marketing dream to fully embrace the advantage Solid Edge bring to you.

Participate to the technical launch in large numbers (you need at least a little bit of technique if you want to master the software Sourire ) You still have one week to register

and explore by yourself the benefits you can get from Solid Edge Synchronous Technology.

Here a letter from John Fox, i think he would not be mad at me since this is send to all attendees …John Letter

.

Partie 1/5 – Les fonctions technologiques utilisent la notion de collection et non pas une arbre linéaire

 – Éliminer le lien de parenté entre les fonctions technologiques

Partie 2/5 – Conserver l’intégrité mécanique du modèle

Partie 3/5 – Ajouter et préciser des contraintes dimensionnelles en temps réel

Partie 4/5 – Éditer un modèle non-linéaire à l’aide de paramètres
