Improved Usability in Solid Edge ST3

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Improving the usability of Solid Edge always receives top priority and Solid Edge ST3 is no different. The Command Ribbon bar can now be customized, letting users define the placement of their most useful commands.

 

 A new customizable Radial menu gives quick access to commonly used commands.

 

The command bar has a horizontal format option that provides the look and feel of the famous SmartStep ribbon bar, which frees up space in PathFinder.

 

 The display for PathFinder can now be shown in transparent mode, freeing up the display for Windows 7 users.

 

Synchronous users now have quick access to the options in Live Rules with a new Heads-up display that appears transparently on screen whenever a synchronous edit is performed.

 

  Many other new capabilities also facilitate faster performance. Performance tests for part view manipulations can be up to 4x faster while assembly can be up to 10x faster.
