Combined with Siemens' convergent model- ing technology, it enables designers to improve product design efficiency and streamline the ability to work with imported geometry. The software incorporates cloud-based collaboration tools to enable collaboration between users, suppliers and customers. Users can upload and manage files in cloud-based folders. Multi-platform, browser-based viewing and improved publishing tools enable the cre- ation of interactive technical documents. Component classification and offline working are supported using embedded Teamcenter integration. New simulation capabilities, such as fully integrated fluid-flow analysis, eliminate the need to transfer data between applications, giving designers the ability to achieve accurate, fast fluid flow and heat-transfer analysis. Integrated CAM capability enables efficient program- ming of CNC machine tools, and new tools enable users to print parts in-house or access a network of AM services. Solid Edge ST10 also includes enriched publica- tion features to quickly create detailed illustrations of designs. Publishing interactive digital documents helps communicate the correct manufacturing process and maintenance procedures. | Siemens PLM Software | 800-498-5351
