New Product - CAD Based Inspection Plans Integrated in CATIA

3DCS Inspection Planner Integrates Inspection Plan Creation into CATIA CAD Software

With this new product from DCS, manufacturers can instantly turn their models into inspeciton plans and measurement plans for the plant floor. 

CAD models are now ubiquitous with manufacturing. However, once the model is done, and converted to 2D prints, it is often forgotten. Why? It is hard to correlate plant data with the CAD model and continue to use it. This is why, when design is done, the model is often shelfed until needed for a future design product. With 3DCS Inspection Planner, creating inspection plans to correlate the data makes it easy to bring inspection and measurement data back into your CAD model to solve design problems and build issues.

CATIA V6 Manufacturing Simulation and Sub-Assembly Modeling in the 3DExperience

Sub-Assembly Modeling in CATIA V6 for the 3DExperience

The shift in the 3DExperience to using Manufacturing Simulation for Dimensional Analysis changes the way 3DCS stores data and creates simulations.

 

In this Tips and Tactics, we explore the methods of sub-assembly tolerance analysis modeling when using 3DCS for V6 in the 3DExperience, starting with the process of bringing 3DCS models from CATIA V5 into CATIA V6.

DCS to Present 3DCS Fully Integrated in CATIA V6 3DExperience

DCS to Showcase 3DCS for CATIA V6 3DEXPERIENCE at the Upcoming 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM NORTH AMERICA


DCS, provider of 3DCS CAA V5 Based software for CATIA Version 5 now has a fully integrated version of 3DCS for CATIA V6 3DExperience and will be demonstrating this powerful solution at the 3DExperience Forum North America in Las Vegas, Nevada 



DCS and Dassault Systemes have been partners for a long time. Starting back in 2002 with 3DCS's integration in CATIA V5, DCS became the first Gold Software Partner for CATIA V5. That partnership brought advanced variation analysis to the CATIA environment, which was quickly realized by leading OEM's around the world. Since then, DCS has leveraged the early successes, and continued success of 3DCS and CATIA to create a global partner network in order to deliver software and services in every major region.
