Solid Edge Design1

is the only software you need to make awesome 3D CAD Models. You can build anything you want. (We built a car)


Solid Edge Design1 is software created by engineers for engineers. It was built from the ground up to be the most advanced modeling software available today. Everything from workflow to file management has been streamlined so you can spend your time modeling, not getting ready to model or figuring out how to share your model.


Solid Edge Design1 is perfect for your next project.

You've got brothers in arms.

Solid Edge Design1 was designed specifically for and used almost exclusively by the Local Motors community. Solid Edge Design1 is already used by teams of modeling professionals and serious hobbyists all over the world.


Radically Different.
Still Standard.

Supports all the industry standard file formats like DXF, DWB, EPS, ETC.


Not made in a garage,
but used in plenty of them.

Design1 was created for us by Siemens PLM Software (Global powerhouse in product development tools. No big deal.)

Insanely Capable

Solid Edge Design1 is ready for anything you can throw at it. This software isn’t for making toys, though if you’re feeling playful it will certainly work for that. We’ve improved upon everything that drove us crazy about other software packages. Siemen's synchronous technology is the most advanced direct modeling implementation we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Make a change to one part, and watch as your changes cascade down to every derivative part -- meaning you spend less time tweaking measurements and more time creating something awesome.

Local Motors Rally Figher

Always Improving.

We realize good software and the resulting design is priceless. Why pay for software that will be outdated in just a year or so? Your subscription to Design1 means that you’ll be privy to the latest features, the latest bug fixes, and the most advanced code available.

So what are you waiting for?

You can try Solid Edge Design1 for 30 days absolutely risk free. We're convinced that once you see how our software will help your work flow and final product, you'll never want to use anything else.
