Solid Edge is CAD software developed by Siemens PLM, widely used in industries such as manufacturing, engineering, and architecture to create and modify 2D and 3D designs.

Solid Edge uses several different file extensions to identify different types of design files. The most common file extensions used in Solid Edge are .par (Part), .asm (Assembly), .dft (Drawing), .dtf (document), and .cmp_xml (Design XML).

  • A .par file in Solid Edge contains a single part that was designed in 3D. This file can be used to create assemblies, drawings, and other design files. An .asm file, on the other hand, contains a collection of parts and sub-assemblies that make up an entire product or system.
  • A .dft file in Solid Edge is used to create 2D drawings that show the dimensions and specifications of a design. This file can be used to communicate design information to other team members or to create manufacturing instructions for production. The .dtf file is used to store documentation files, such as user manuals or design specifications. Finally, the .cmp_xml file is an XML design file used to store component information that can be shared between different design applications.

In addition to its file management capabilities, Solid Edge also has interoperability tools for exchanging models with other CAD programs. Solid Edge supports both native and neutral file formats including STL, IGES, DXF, DWG, STEP, Microstation, Parasolid, ACIS, PLMXML, and NX.

In summary, Solid Edge is a CAD software developed by Siemens PLM. Solid Edge supported native or neutral formats are STL, IGES, DXF, DWG, STEP, Microstation, Parasolid, ACIS, PLMXML, NX. Solid Edge file extensions are :
.par (Part)
.asm (Assembly)
.dft (Drawing)
.dtf (document)
.cmp_xml (XML design)
