DCS to Showcase New Product 3DCS for NX at MFG4 Conference

DCS Will Be Showcasing 3DCS for NX at the MFG4 Conference in Hartford Connecticut

Dimensional Control Systems is exhibiting at booth 1317 at the Mfg4 - Manufacturing 4 the Future - Show at the Hartfort Convention Center in Hartford Connecticut May 3rd thorugh the 5th. 

Hartford, CT - Dimensional Control Systems (DCS) is showcasing the new product 3DCS for NX at the Manufacturing 4 the Future Conference (Mfg4) in Hartford Connecticut USA May 3rd through the 5th. Exhibiting at booth 1317, DCS will be highlighting the benefits of using an integrated tolerance analysis tool within NX that leverages Teamcenter and the modules of NX. 

3DCS Variation Analyst for NX (3DCS for NX) is fully integrated in Siemens NX. This allows users to work within a single environment, adding variation analysis and GD&T optimization to their modeling without having to export or import models or incorporate outside tools. This seamless workflow reduces the need for training, increases productivity and takes advantage of the NX investment as well as promoting consistency in GD&T and process.

 

 

As part of DCS's Closed Loop process, 3DCS for NX gives users the ability to pull data from Teamcenter or to apply tolerance analysis directly onto NX math models without having to export or change environments. By utilizing the Siemens NX platform, 3DCS is able to store models directly in Teamcenter, controlling revisions and promoting easier collaboration with peers. 

Why Use an Integrated Tolerance Analysis Tool?

1. Teamcenter Utilization- Save your models and control revisions within your PLM system


2. PMI- Take advantage of your GD&T and PMI (Product and Manufacturing Information) to streamline the modeling process and to optimize your GD&T for best quality at lowest cost

3. Update Geometry- Is the design team still making changes to the product? Incorporate new parts and design changes quickly into your model, without having to import/export models or worry about translation issues. 

4. Visualization - NX offers both Advanced Visualization and Ray Traced Studio to quickly add high end visualization to your models. Use Advanced for quick checks and Spec Studies, then apply Ray Traced Studio and environments to see life like depictions of your products that include part and process variation.
