Solid edge is a software fouses innovation and collaboration throughout the value chain and addresses the needs

of midsize companies. Solid edge is software used to create 2D and 3D modeling design in variety of numbers in the short time Solid edge is a very simple tool of software which minimizes the time and cost of a designer. It consists of no of commands and templates ready to use for creating accurate drawings and 3D models. The commands which we used in solid edge or just as pen, pencil, rubber, protractor, compass and so on. Solid edge can be commanded over only if we understand how to use the tools present in it in effective manner. So, here is a set of instruction and short procidure to learn the software.

Instruction Manual
Step 1: Start Solid edge on the start menu click all Programs, clip Solid edge v19 and then click Solid edge The start of screen is displayed. {The Start up screen} Solid Edge has four separate documents Types: Parts (.par) Sheet metal Parts (.psm) Assemblies (.asm) and Drawings (.dft) Solid edge provides many variety of options such as a) Solid part b) Sheet Metal part c) Weldment d) Assembly e) Drawing Now create three dimensional modeling click on the Solid part at the start of screen The ensure that you are working with a metric document; you will open a new document using the metric template. On the main toolbar, click the new button on the dialog box, click the more tab, then select the normal .par template. Now, At the top of the window, below the title bar, the menu bar has cascading menus for standard windows commands such as file, edit, view, and so forth, as well as Tools, Features, Applications, and other menus of commands that are specific to solid edge. Beneath the menu bar, the main tool bar contains the typical windows commands you use for opening and saving documents, cutting, copying, and pasting elements, along with other commonly used command for shading windows, zooming in and out, and so forth. Beneath the main tool bar, the ribbon bar changes as you work to provide options for the command that is currently running. Ribbon bars guide you through the steps of working through commands, let you choose options, and accept input such as names and distances.

Notes:
Status Bar:- It always displays what the system expects you to do next. Edge bar, Which is arranged vertically along the left side of the graphic window, helps you to manage and complete tasks on a design project. The feature path finder tab on edge bar makes it easy to keep hack of the features you construct is added to the features path finder as you work.

Mouse Buttons:
Left button You use this button to select geometry, command and option buttons, and entries in the edge bar tool. The left button is used most of the time. Right button You use this button to activate contact sensitive shortcut menus. The contents on these menus change depending on what object the cursor is over.

Getting Started
The feature construction commands are locate on the features tool bar. This is the vertical tool bar located along the left edge of the Solid edge graphic window.

Step to create a Model


Go to edge bar, then select any one of the planes where you want to create a (2D) Drawing which can be further converted in to (3D) model (i.d) Solid part Top (xy) Right (xz) Front (xz)

Select the Plane

Before selecting the plane the major task is to identify whether the 2D Drawing must be revolved or protuded to convert into 3D model. All cylindrical parts are revolved using revolve protrusion [ Ex. All parts of the screw jack ] And the simple protrusion is done using symmetric protrusion.
