Siemens PLM Software has revealed that its Solid Edge ST4 and Femap 10.2 with NX NASTRAN software can be downloaded free for 45 days. The service includes access to a range of learning resources, stated the company.

According to Siemens, Solid Edge ST4 users will experience modern 3D CAD with synchronous technology that combines the speed and flexibility of direct modeling with precise control of dimension driven design. On the other hand, Femap users will benefit from high-powered CAE analysis in an easy to use application. The software is available in multiple languages and can be downloaded from the company's website.

Solid Edge ST4

Solid Edge ST4 delivers full function CAD capabilities.

"The most effective method of evaluating CAD and CAE software is to use the production versions in your own environment," said John Fox, VP of velocity series marketing, Siemens. "By providing a free download of Solid Edge and Femap, along with access to tutorials, user forums and other resources, we are making it easier than ever to perform that evaluation, while at the same time enabling an exceptional user experience."

The Solid Edge trial delivers full function mainstream CAD capabilities including part modeling, surfacing, sheet metal design, assembly design, drafting, assembly applications, simulation, rendering, mold tooling design, web publisher and data translators.

The Femap trial includes all finite element modeling (FEM) pre- and post-processing capabilities necessary to use the NX Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) solver that is also included in the trial. Both the Dynamic Response and Optimization add-on's to NX Nastran are part of the offering. There are no restrictions on the number of saves, part sizes or other factors that would limit the creation of complete product designs.

To help users acclimate with the software and let them collaborate with other users, registrants are given access to dedicated user forums that are also staffed by either Solid Edge or Femap technical specialists.
