Siemens PLM Releases 3D D-Cubed Component Updates

By DE Editors

Siemens PLM Software has released Version 45.0 of the 3D D-Cubed software components. Highlights of this release include extended support for the recently introduced spin surface geometry type and improved over-defined model diagnostics for the 3D DCM.

Further algorithms have been multi-threaded in the CDM and HLM, improving performance when computing clearance (also known as closest approach) in the CDM, and when working with large tolerant models in the HLM.

The D-Cubed 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (3D DCM) is a software component that positions parts in assemblies, simulates their kinematic motion, and controls the configuration of 3D sketches and the shape of parts.

The D-Cubed Hidden Line Manager (HLM) component accurately and rapidly computes hidden line views. New enhancements include support for closed tangent (G1) discontinuous surfaces and multi-threading of tolerant models.

The D-Cubed Collision Detection Manager (CDM) component accurately and rapidly detects collisions and computes clearances. New enhancements include multi-threading, consistent reporting of closest approach information, and support for closed tangent discontinuous surfaces.

The D-Cubed Assembly Engineering Manager (AEM) provides a more realistic and productive assembly environment. The update includes improved support for degenerate surfaces.
