Siemens PLM Software announced Solid Edge Design1, a new offering based on its SolidEdge software that makes professional-level computer-aided design (CAD) available at a lower cost. The product will be introduced through Local Motors, a Siemens PLM Software partner, exclusively to the Local Motors global design community for a monthly subscription price of $19.95.
Local Motors and Siemens PLM Software are making available, for a limited time, a downloadable trial of Solid Edge Design1. The trial is being made available now through the end of the year to select Local Motors community members. The entire global community will then be able to purchase Solid Edge Design1 software subscriptions starting Jan. 1, 2012. The companies are also providing a new 3D viewing experience to Local Motors community members based on Siemens’ JT data format.
Solid Edge Design1 is based on the same technology found in the full function version of Solid Edge, and includes capabilities such as core assembly and 3D part modeling with synchronous technology.
