***Update see at the bottom***
Meet the SE Planning Team, at the Solid Edge ST4 Global Launch Event.
Those guys and girl are the tips of the iceberg, who have start shaping a new era in the CAD modeling.
OK, at first many of you yell loud when Synchronous Technology was launch.
For some of us the cultural shock was bigger, but now that Synchronous Technology and its non linear modeling techniques mature, people now realize new ways to add Synch modeling to their design. In fact a whole CAD industry is working in that direction and Solid Edge have take the lead with its fourth release candidate.
Also let’s not forget all the GTAC team members, Kyle, Wayne, Jeff, Ken, Andrew, John, Jim, Paul, Marcelo, Rene, Woody….. those are the one who makes the link between the planning and you.Next time you log something, just drop hello from Solid DNA in your request
Also let’s not forget Laura who works backstage.
So for those of you who get FUD about Solid Edge and the Synchronous Technnology come and see for yourself
Oups almost forget to post the link …… meet the Planning team
Happy design everyone
P.S. Update here the support and testing field lead by Laura Watson and Doug Stainbrook

Yesterday’s CADalyst CAD magazine, host a webcast about “Direct vs. Parametric”.
Topic: When, why and how to use direct and/or parametric modeling in your business.include
On the Edge, the Solid Edge mechanical chronic of Cadalyst CAD site since 2003, propose a webcast Direct vs. Parametric Thurday February 24 2011
From the PLM world, meet M. John Devitry a passionate teacher who open the minds of his students using Synchonous Technology.
From John Banquer reply i add this little survey
Hello to all Solid DNA reader’s
Many of you have heard about the new Solid Edge Virtual Training coming soon, if not take a look at this preview page and spread the word around you, so people in the CAD business can experience training like nothing else before.
New release of synchronous technology introduce new behavior and layout for the steering wheel.
Designnews .com post a news about SEwST winning the Golden Mousetrap award
“…While the merits of history-free vs. history-based or parametric CAD systems have been debated for years, 2009 was the year vendors made huge strides in bridging the benefits of both modeling technologies in one product. Perhaps no 3-D CAD company did as much to advance the trend as Siemens PLM Software with the introduction of Synchronous Technology, its next-generation modeling approach…”
This next article highlight one of the command see at PLM world, Hole alignment. This command came from a workflow develop under ST1 that make its way into a single command for ST2
I wasn’t sure if I should write about Inventor fusion. Then Technology Preview was available so why not take a sneak peak at it and see what this first preview can offer.
My first impression, it give me the déjà vu impression. We are in a AutoCAD world, without all the icons, toolbar and functionalities… except for the multi body operation.
Has I mention ST 2 is not only about big announcement, FEA, sheet metal etc… it is also in small details. Those who did not work with ST1 will not be able to measure the difference.
In the first release of Synchronous Technology symmetry was recognize by Live Rules when the part was model around the main plane.
If symmetry was need in a offset position we had to use the manual symmetry place in the advance Live Rules.
ST2 enhance the symmetry capability.
I add another file tutorial from my presentation at the PLM World.
This will probably interest users and non solid edge users, has i show a part create in a linear way and non-linear way.
Visit the tutorials section
Recent discussion got my attention and i would like to add my 2 cents to the pot:
One of the new module introduce in ST2 is the Simulation module. This extend the family of product in that field.
The simulation in the velocity series include three modules:
- Solid Edge simulation Express (FEMAP Express)
- Solid Edge simulation
To make some room for ST2 i regroup the link information of ST 1 at the botoom of ST1 page
I have talk about one presentation that i found interesting,
Dora Smith from the Social marketing has put a nice interview with the presenter, so why not share with you this interview….
Did not had much time to post while at the user conference so after driving 20 hrs back home and a good weekend of sleep. I have some free time to post more details. Watch for new articles in the next couple of days
For those who wonder if attend the even worth it, i would say yes.
Some peoples will argue that i will provide free information on my blog about the next release so why going there.
First some information i provide may be related to something see at the user conference, most of those who did not attend would not be able to relate this information to something.
Second peoples will ask questions on new features, i do not have all the answers. Attend the conference give you access to those who write the code. Some minor correction could also be done at the beta stage. Or ask new stuff for ST3, you will be there to justify your demand and demonstrate your point.
Third it will give you the possibility to plan the implementation of the next release, of course for smaller company the impact is less then a company with hundred of seats. But planning and managing is the key to success. Proactive company get more success then those who are re-active.
Fourth networking, who in those wrought times could refuse the opportunity to meet potential customers or suppliers. I saw many active discussion and some report going out for a business lunch.
User presentation, if your a passive person who seat there and watch you will probably miss a lot of information’s, but if you pay good attention and get involve in the presentation you will understand that good and valuable information are available. One of the presentation i love was the one before mine from Brian Hara of Industrial Control.
You also see how the world is small, I had the chance to make contact after 15 years with a classmate. He is on the west coast while i am on the east coast.
Has a blogger i had the chance to speak with one or two readers.
At breakfast I had a discussion with someone who the might before end in a small bar with one of the best jamming session he have heard. You should have see he’s eyes when speaking about it. It was like a revelation for him.
Last, you may give the excuse it cost 2000 or so… unless i am wrong, company have tax deduction when doing their tax report so the real price would probably less….. let say we divide this in half.
