Dimensional Control Systems (DCS) announced that its 3DCS Variation Analyst Multi-CAD solution supports SolidWorks 2012 3D design software with new capabilities for variation analysis.
3DCS Variation Analyst Multi-CAD can be used for detailed tolerance simulation modeling, and allows manufacturers to appraise design, fabrication and assembly robustness by evaluating GD&T, assembly tooling and build sequencing well ahead of production release.
Designers and engineers can use 3DCS Variation Analyst Multi-CAD and SolidWorks software to predict the dimensional variability of their designs and assembly processes so that manufacturing issues can be resolved before production, with optimized tolerances and assembly methods. A SolidWorks Solution Partner Product, the solution allows users to work directly with the CAD data to quickly create tolerance models.
"As a SolidWorks Solution Partner, we are now providing a solution package that utilizes the environment and tools of SolidWorks CAD in conjunction with our Variation Analysis software to deliver a more robust product design and improved manufacture-ability," said DCS executive vice president and COO John Mathieson. "We are continually researching these kinds of partnerships as a means of delivering a complete solution to our mutual customers' needs."
