Wire Harness Design
Solid Edge Wire Harness Design assists the creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles.
Solid Edge Wire Harness Design is a dedicated process driven environment for the efficient creation, routing and organization of wires, cables and bundles in a Solid Edge assembly. Wire Harness Design allows electrical and mechanical design teams to collaborate on designs to create complete and accurate digital mockups containing both mechanical and electrical components, and removes the need for expensive physical prototypes. Design violations such as exceeding physical bundle size or a bend radius being too tightly routed are constantly monitored as the harness is being designed; live feedback immediately displays any problems. Reporting of cable and wire cut length and attributes (allowing for a slack percentage and wire stripping) are captured during the harness design process. The export of ready-to-use ‘net list’ files adds these mechanical attributes to generate harness designs that are ready for manufacturing.
Automatic wire harness design- Once electrical engineers have developed and proven their designs using electrical prototypes (a task becoming increasingly important as the size and complexity of electrical systems increase), the harness wizard allows mechanical engineers to automatically generate and route physical wires and cables. The harness wizard uses input from dedicated electrical schematics applications such as Mentor Graphics, Cimteam and Vesys to automatically transfer any net-list components and connections to Solid Edge.
Solid Edge XpresRoute eases the design of mechanical routed systems. A comprehensive set of industry-specific design tools helps designers quickly route and model piping and tubing in Solid Edge assemblies.
Solid Edge XpresRoute eases the design of mechanical routed systems. A comprehensive set of industry-specific design tools helps designers quickly route and model piping and tubing in Solid Edge assemblies. Fully integrated with Solid Edge, XpresRoute utilizes process-specific workflows that match industry best practices and work the way that you want to work. With XpresRoute, you not only accelerate your design process for mechanical routed systems, you also enjoy improved BOM accuracy and lower costs through standardization.
Solid Edge Simulation
Solid Edge Simulation provides an easy-to-use finite element analysis (FEA) tool capability for performing fast, accurate, static or modal analysis on assemblies, parts or sheet metal models.
Solid Edge Simulation is a new, built-in finite element analysis (FEA) tool for design engineers to digitally validate part and assembly designs within the Solid Edge environment. Based on proven Femap finite element modeling and NX Nastran solver technology, Solid Edge Simulation significantly reduces the need for physical prototypes, which lowers your material and testing costs, and saves design time.
