Case Study: Structural and Functional Analysis of Drive Train of Major Vehicle System (Star Wars Humor)

Case Study: Structural and Functional Analysis of Drivetrain of Major Transportation System (Humor)

DCS was involved in a previously confidential assignment for a defense OEM to analyze the functional requirements of their primary vehicle's drivetrain. 

DCS has completed a number of projects for aerospace and defense companies, most of which cannot be disclosed. With the declassification of documents in recent years, some of these projects have been approved to be shown.

Back to Basics: How to Quickly Add Points, Moves and Tolerances to Your 3DCS CAD Model

How to Quickly Add Points, Moves and Tolerances to Your 3DCS CAD Model

This Back to Basics article covers a number of ways to quickly add Moves, Tolerances and Points to a 3DCS model

Anyone who has worked with CAD knows that the most time consuming task is preparing the model for analysis. This process is the 'necessary evil' in order to get the results you need to make decisions and validate your GD&T. This is, of course, needed in order to model assembly joints and constraints that mimic the real world. There are, of course, ways of speeding up the process.
