This month, Siemens PLM Software (Plano, TX) has just released the latest versions for four of its D-Cubed component software products, which address needs in CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM applications.
Version 38.0 — of 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (3D DCM), Assembly Engineering Manager (AEM), Collision Detection Manager (CDM) and Hidden Line Manager (HLM) — is said to improve to improve function and performance.
The D-Cubed components, which provide 3D part and assembly modeling, editing & interoperability, 2D/3D parametric sketching, motion simulation, collision detection, clearance measurement, and visualization, have applications in mechanical CAD, CAM, CAE, mold design, sheet metal, AEC, GIS, structural, plant and ship design, CMM, reverse engineering, and sales.
Specifically, the D-Cubed 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (3D DCM), version 38.0, positions parts in assemblies, simulates their kinematic motion, and parametrically controls the configuration of 3D sketches. Learn more about D-Cubed 3D DCM version 38.0 here.
Second, the D-Cubed Collision Detection Manager (CDM), version 38.0 is a software component that accurately and rapidly detects collisions and computes clearances.
Previous releases range from CDM v37 to CDM v33. Learn more about D-Cubed CDM version 38.0 here.
Third, the D-Cubed Assembly Engineering Manager (AEM), version 38.0 is a software component that provides a more realistic and productive assembly environment. Previous releases range from AEM v37 to AEM v34 & AEM v17. Learn more about D-Cubed AEM, version 38.0 here.
And fourth, the D-Cubed Hidden Line Manager (HLM), version 38.0, is a software component that accurately and rapidly computes hidden line views. Previous Releases range from HLM v37 to HLM v33. Learn more about D-Cubed HLM version 38.0 here.

Last February, Siemens PLM Software released version 53.0 of the D-Cubed 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM), a software component that controls 2D parametric sketches in 2D and 3D design environments; and version 53.0 of its Profile Geometry Manager (PGM), a software component that adds a range of productivity tools to 2D DCM-based design environments.
