Solid Edge for Linux

You can also read this article in German here!

Solid Edge by Siemens Digital Industries Software is a cloud-enabled professional CAD software for 2D and 3D designs and offers the user all functions for his design tasks in draft, part and assembly.

Widespread in mechanical and plant engineering in particular, Solid Edge impresses in particular with its intuitive operation, flexibility in modeling and its outstanding sheet metal module.

Furthermore, this program uses the special synchronous technology and you have the advantages of direct modeling and history-based parametrics in a CAD system.

However, Solid Edge is one of those CAD systems that was developed directly for Windows and was not adopted as a port from another platform.

This means that it is not intended to be used under Linux or macOS!

But let’s get back to the actual functions and extensions of Solid Edge

Because similar to other programs in this industry, there are different versions or expansion stages, which give the user more options in project creation.

There are also a large number of extensions that can be used to put together an individual Solid Edge solution, for example to obtain additional functions for surface construction or access to the mechanical engineering library for standard parts.

There is also a free version of Solid Edge for hobbyists and makers if you only want to use the program for private use.

For this reason, I have also created a project for this program on my GitHub channel, so that Solid Edge can also be used under Linux in the future.

So if you want to know more about the Solid Edge for Linux project or have any other questions, just post it in the comments below so other readers can benefit too!
