SolidFace Collaboration is a 2D and 3D parametric historic constructive CAD modeler. In addition to 3D modeling, it allows project creation entirely in 2D, such as mechanical parts, civilian plants, layouts, etc. SolidFace Collaboration is a sum of Parasolid Siemens 3D modeler core and 15 years of UniCAD 2D/3D development resulting in a product with powerful capabilities of detailing, solid modeling, assembly and parametrization.
Built-in version control and simple management tools solve the costly need for a separate PDM system. Your team and you always on the latest design data. Every modification made by every user is captured and recorded and can be reversed at any time, providing unlimited undo/redo and a documented audit trail. Branching and merging enable many product ideas to be developed in parallel.
Create, edit, and control designs simultaneously and seemingly with other users and visualize modifications in real-time as they are made. Easily share design data with other users, your team, or your clients, suppliers, and set permissions to view, edit, and export. Add comments and assign tasks to keep everyone on track.
3D Part Library
Directly available through SolidFace´s software interface, this new online part library features over 100 million part numbers from hundreds of leading component manufacturers and distributors and thousands of ISO, ANSI, DIN, NF, GB, ASME, and more standards.
Design simple or complex solid and surface models using top-down or bottom-up methodologies. Feel the design intent with inter-part building, allowing the design of multiple parts in the part module. Enhance SolidFace robust feature set with powerful parametric capabilities enabling you to speed your design even further.
Create complex and detailed assemblies with built-in standard hardware and parts linked from other projects or libraries. Create movement simulations and test collision. Design parts in-context and manage updates efficiently. SolidFace unique parametric capabilities and collaboration module eliminate the problem of broken links and missing files.
Automatically creates drawing with parametric references for modeling features that can be edited in a very simple and interactive way. This is an in-house developed module and fully integrated with the 3D module. Showcase detailed drawings of parts and assemblies with dimensions, datums, surface finish and weld symbols, geometric tolerances, notes, tables, balloons, callouts, sheets and fully configurable drawing properties. Supports import and export of D WG, DWT and DXF file formats.
The parameterization capability is one of the most significant advantages of SolidFace, and it is present in all design steps. 3D Motion simulation is no different; the simulation is updated simultaneously with the movement. Another important capability is the simulation of 2D mechanisms, which can be performed either in 2D drawing or in 3D sketch module.
