Siemens PLM Software and Sescoi International have announced the integration of D-Cubed software components from Siemens PLM Software into Sescoi International’s new WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling product.
WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling is optimized for the CAD requirements of manufacturers. Parametric sketching and parametric assembly modeling are powered by the D-Cubed 2D and 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM and 3D DCM) respectively. These solutions are part of Siemens PLM Software’s PLM Components portfolio and are licensed under the company’s open business model. In WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling, new surface design capabilities are integrated with solid modeling functionality. Curves and surfaces can be manipulated, and models repaired, to prepare them for manufacture using Sescoi’s WorkNC automatic 2 to 5-axis CAM software.
Both D-Cubed 2D and 3D DCM components have also been integrated into Sescoi’s WorkNC-Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) application. This product allows manufacturers to extract cross sections and surface data from the CAD model ready for 2 or 4 axis wire eroding operations.
“The new CAD capabilities launched in WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling and WorkNC-Wire EDM are tuned to the requirements of our WorkNC manufacturing applications,” says Bruno Marko, president and CEO of Sescoi International. “As our customers’ CAM-oriented parametric design requirements have evolved, the D-Cubed 2D and 3D DCM geometric constraint solvers have coped easily with these ever more demanding applications. Their advanced state of development and market-proven capabilities make the 2D and 3D DCM the most appropriate components to meet our current and future demands.”
