Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

Solid Edge manufacturing solutions help manufacturers to define and execute a wide range of traditional and new manufacturing processes including CNC machining, nesting, cutting, bending, molding, welding, assembling, and additive manufacturing.

These software solutions work directly on your Solid Edge part, sheet metal and assembly models ensuring accurate and efficient manufacturing processes, and the manufacturing instructions created using these solutions can be easily updated to reflect any changes in the underlying design.

Additive Manufacturing



Solid Edge allows you to fully take advantage of additive manufacturing, whether you are creating individual prototypes or manufacturing larger volumes of components. Our tools support your end-to-end workflow, from design-for-manufacture using additive techniques, to preparing and outputting your designs to 3D printing hardware and services.





Solid Edge 2D Nesting



With Solid Edge 2D Nesting, generate optimized layouts for the two-dimensional cutting of fabrication materials, including sheet metal, plastic, wood, fabric and textiles. 2D Nesting saves fabricators time and money by allowing them to manage material use more effectively.

The process of 2D nesting, or the organization of 2D shapes efficiently on a single cutting plane, is much like processes dressmakers have used for decades. The optimized nesting patterns, created using a next-generation nesting algorithm, markedly reduce preparation time, waste and costs.

3D Printing




3D printing is part science and part art. Effective design for 3D printing is a combination of understanding the printing process and adapting to it, and understanding the goals for your object and designing with those goals in mind.

Whether you are creating an initial prototype or your final product, Solid Edge supports your needs.
