The Evolve to 3D program leverages capability built into Solid Edge V17. Advances in Solid Edge let users mix and match 2D and 3D techniques in a hybrid-design environment, continuing to use their efficient 2D layout processes while making the move to 3D for complete digital mockup. Studies show engineering change orders drop by 50% or more, productivity increases up to 50%, and time to market shortens by months. The four steps in the program include protecting a company's investment in 2D designs by converting them to Solid Edge. Step 2: Turn simple 2D geometry into intelligent, 3D parts using the 2D to 3D migration wizard. Step 3: Apply hybrid 2D/3D design workflow. Step 4: Move to full 3D digital mock-up when ready and use workflows learned and the data created.
