Siemens offers free Solid Edge software for students

Siemens PLM Software is offering a Student Edition of its Solid Edge software for 3D CAD. It is now available free of charge to all full or part time students throughout the world at any academic level.

This no-charge 12-month license is available only to students through an instant download. It contains not only the latest Solid Edge functionality necessary to create detailed product designs, but also Siemens PLM Software’s synchronous technology.

Register for and download the Student Edition of Solid Edge. The license can be renewed each year provided the user remains a qualified student.

“The global manufacturing community – including all of our customers – has an insatiable appetite for new engineering graduates with the ability to add instant value to their product design and development process,” said Karsten Newbury, senior vice president and general manager of Solid Edge and Velocity Series, Siemens PLM Software.

The Student Edition of Solid Edge contains all of the functionality necessary to create complete designs using some of the industry’s most sophisticated and modern techniques.

In addition to Siemens PLM Software’s synchronous technology, which combines the speed and flexibility of direct modeling with the precise control of dimension driven design, students will have access to the full function modules of Solid Edge drafting, sheet metal, surfacing and advanced assembly design.

In order to ensure students have the ability to effectively use all of the Solid Edge functionality provided, registrants are provided with links to tutorials and other on-line media, and granted access to a dedicated Internet forum that will allow collaboration with other students using Solid Edge.

Users of the Student Edition of Solid Edge will also gain access to technical productivity tips to help further increase their proficiency.
