An integration for Siemens Solid Edge product lifecycle management (PLM) software by 3YourMind enables 3D production directly from the software with just a few clicks. Users can select different materials and material properties, such as biocompatibility or suitability for rapid prototyping, and the integration optimizes the files, reducing the margin of error from prototyping and different additive manufacturing processes. A service portal also connects users to professional manufacturers around the world for price comparison and production and delivery times, enabling customers to order from Solid Edge-approved services.
