Solid Edge ST3 brings the Synchronous Technology, one step further, at the heart of a unified design environment.
You will now be able to reunite inside a single file the linear modeling (Traditional/Ordered) and the non-linear modeling (Synchronous). Allowing you to preserve your existing workflow.
ST3_01 In this example, the Synchronous mode was used to create the base of the model (Protrusion 1).

The Cutout 1 (Loft) was then created completely in Linear mode.
To take advantage of the sketches flexibility of the Non linear mode, two sketches were created to have a skeletal basis in order to create the Cutout 2 (Loft).
As you can see, it was possible to combine three modeling methods:
  • The nonlinear modeling (Synchronous) – Protrusion 1
  • The linear modeling (Traditional, using a feature base approach) – Coutout 1
  • The Skeleton modeling in a traditional way – Coutout 2
To switch between the two environments, you activate the desired mode, using the right mouse button. You can also customize the Quick Access Toolbar to add the command buttons below.
ST3_02
No need to convert or to use feature recognizer, both environments are accessible at any time.
In the Solid Edge options, you define which work environment will be active when you create a new part.
ST3_03
The traditional users may want to set the linear mode as the default environment. As they go, they will be able to make the transition toward nonlinear technics.
In the unified design environment 1.0, you can transform a linear operation into a nonlinear operation using the contextual menu associate to the operation. The conversion process is a one way process.
In this example, an operation is sandwiched between, in red the parent features, in blue the child features.

To give you something to bit at , the time I finish meet certain contractual obligations, here an introduction document on the new stuff deployed inside ST3.

Deelip on ST3  –  11 parst reveiew – (looks like Deeplip fall in the ST stuff 🙂 Nice work deelip)
Part 1 – intro
Part 2 – I will explain the concept
Part 3 – having synchronous and ordered features
Part 4 – moving features from the ordered  to the synchronous
Part 5 – moving features from the ordered to the synchronous
Part 6 – moving features from the ordered to the synchronous
Part 7 – moving features from the ordered to the synchronous
Part 8 – how well ordered and synchronous features coexist in the same feature tree
Part 9 – how well ordered and synchronous features coexist in the same feature tree
