CADServer publica en su página web una evaluación de la última versión de Solid Edge. El artículo concluye: "From the outset, Solid Edge has been one of the most impressive mainstream products available, though of late, it does seem to be taking a bit of a back seat. From its days at Intergraph, it has always been focussed of the production process, something which dove-tails rather nicely with EDS' process-centric vision. This release is full of good solid functionality enhancements, which although they may not have the pizzazz of other competitive systems, only go to show that it's the quiet ones you really have to watch. Solid Edge is one of the most impressive systems around, a fact born out by its popularity in the UK."
