Edge PLM Software announces that the latest full-function versions of Solid Edge software and Femap software with NX Nastran software can be downloaded and used at no-charge for 45 days.

Users will have access to free trial licenses for the full production versions of Solid Edge ST4 and Femap 10.2 as well as extensive learning resources.

Edge PLM Software will also offer free ½ day test drive sessions in major cities across Australia in addition to a series of 1-hour ‘how to clinic webinars’ for users in the trial period.

Solid Edge ST4 users will have access to state-of-the-art 3D computer-aided design software (CADD) with synchronous technology, a unique capability which combines the speed and flexibility of direct modelling with the precise control of dimension driven design.

Femap users will benefit from high-powered computer-aided engineering analysis (CAE) delivered in an easy-to-use application.

According to John Fox, vice president of Velocity Series Marketing, Siemens PLM Software, using the production versions of CAD and CAE software in one’s own environment is the most effective way to evaluate the applications.

The free no-obligation download offer for Solid Edge and Femap software along with access to tutorials, user forums and other resources will allow users to perform the evaluation, while also enabling an exceptional user experience.

The full production versions of Solid Edge and Femap will also help users discover how they can increase engineering productivity, be more creative, and simply design better.

Full-function software with effective training

The Solid Edge 3D CAD software trial delivers full-function mainstream CAD capabilities including part modelling, surfacing, sheet metal design, assembly design, drafting, assembly applications, simulation, rendering, mould tooling design, web publisher, and data translators in addition to ground-breaking synchronous technology.  

The Femap trial includes all finite element modelling (FEM) pre and post processing capabilities necessary to use the NX Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) solver, which is also included in the trial. The offer also includes the Dynamic Response and Optimization add-ons to NX Nastran.

The full-function software download offer does not place any restriction on the number of saves, part sizes, or other factors that would limit a user’s ability to create complete product designs.

Users also have access to comprehensive learning resources to help them get the most out of the applications during the trial. All registrants are also given access to dedicated user forums staffed by either Solid Edge or Femap technical specialists to help them get acclimated with the software and enable collaboration with other users.

Registrants will also have access to interactive tutorials and video tips to help them become more proficient with Solid Edge and Femap.

The free 45-day trial licenses of Solid Edge and Femap are available now from Siemens PLM Software or Edge PLM Software.
