Solid DNA blog

Blog about stuff on Solid Edge CAD software

www.soliddna.com is now public

Solid DNA would like to offer to the CAD community a unique training experience.

 

Peoples who want to learn how to design with a CAD software, are no longer spectator.

With Solid Edge Virtual Training, you are an  actor in your learning process.

www.soliddna.com

 

The web site will host  Solid Edge Virtual Training, a new interactive and immersive training experience.

You will learn  3D CAD software design without having to install any software.

New tutorial file

Hi all

Look in the tutorials section.  I upload a tutorial about basic part creation under ST. I also answer a question how to move part body around the Base Coordinate System.

PLM World presentation file

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.

DVD tutorials are being synchronize

Visit  the link below for the latest video tutorials offer

http://www.soliddna.com/Preview/preview.html

 

Update: DVD tutorials below  can be order, but are replaced by Solid Edge Virtual Training

HI all

Has many request, a new version of the DVD tutorials showing the fluent interface and the Synchronous Technology is on it’s way.

Keep visiting the blog and spread the word.

I’ve been quiet these days has i prepare myself for the user conference and finish some professional obligation.

 When return from the conference, i will look forward to post new stuff. If you have special things you would like me to write, send your request

Here two preview of the update DVD tutorials

 

 

Happy modeling all

New Camera tutorial

Hi everyone

Sorry if i have taken long to post new stuff

Look in the tutorials section, a new one is available in three parts. I admit i was inspire by an external source.

Spherical ramp

Question ask thru newsgroup lead to this proposal to create some kind of spherical ramp.

Look in the Tutorials section, top right corner of the screen.

Hope you enjoy, if you have a different version just send it, will take a look.

Pattern traditional and Synchronous

In a recent discussion in a newsgroup, question was ask about hole alignment. Portion of the discussion where about placing hole in a circular pattern. So I produce a small video, this not answer all questions but give an idea of the concept.

The initial idea was to show a little bit more about Pattern.  However, I realize interesting facts.

1- Word was spread that 2D cannot control 3D. So people reading about Synchronous where leaving with this impression. I confess I am part of this miss leading information. Especially where the 2D is move in the used Sketches bin, when we show extrusions. However, for pattern this is not applied.

2- I use more often pattern along a curve in ST.

Why?

Because the concept of procedural feature. Procedural feature inside Solid Edge is like an evolution of what we commonly call feature. Common procedural features are hole, shell and round. You can easily identified procedural feature, when select a small handle is available. By trying to reproduce this concept inside each of my actions, it seems easier to control a Synchronous model.

3-The build time of this simple part was roughly 30 percent less. 1:30 versus 1:00.

This is not the most rigorous scientific test ever, but I believe enough accurate to see the potential.

4- Users have the same controls and more flexibility when it comes time to apply changes on the part versus a traditional part, even if less constraint.

5- Has you see, this is done while evolving inside Fluent Interface….

Not bad for a first release. What could we expect in the next coming releases?

If you take time to read on the net those who blog about ST you can find interesting clue

«….Workflow — Here, I think the whole story wasn’t quite made clear. Yes, it’s true that history-based modeling and Synchronous Technology are quite different and you don’t mix and match the modeling styles within the same part design. But we DO allow and encourage mix/match at the assembly level – you can create models using either technology (both are included in Solid Edge even in the base package) and create assemblies of both types mixed. With the next release of Solid Edge, ST2, we will continue to expand this notion, allowing even more flexibility with assemblies with mixed part types. In general, you will continue to see us evolve and merge the two technologies to continue to leverage the best of each….»

«…Just in the modeling arena, they differ quite a bit in how they handle features (procedural features – a lot more on this coming in ST2) and dimension driven editing…»

Christmas late delivery

Hi everyone, sorry if i made my self quiet. I got life beside the blog…

My Christmas delivery boy report lot of traffic lately.

avion-noel

So I cook you a nice interactive tutorial.

For those who do not have SEwST install, this will be your first contact has real has it can get witout installing the software.

For SEwST customers who do not have installed yet, this will be a nice introduction.

For the early adopters and those who still believe that they can learn by them self, this will be another step in the good direction.

Those are not intend to replace a real trainning session.

So click the link to download the file.

Project-01

Change the extension for .exe, when execute it will unzip three files inside a Solid DNA folder. Each of the file are standalone simply execute and follow the instruction. First tutorial should launch after unzip is finish.

Comment or use the request page …….

Happy New Year
