3DCS for Creo Webinar - Next Week!

by Benjamin Reese, on Jan 20, 2017 10:49:43 AM

3DCS is Now Fully Integrated Into PTC Creo CAD - Webinar

DCS is presenting the new version of 3DCS tolerance analysis software, 3DCS Variation Analyst for Creo, next week on Thursday, January 26th at 11 am EST.

 This webinar will showcase 3DCS inside the Creo platform, highlighting moves, tolerances, GD&T and assembly methods.

Why use an integrated platform?

Store 3DCS Data in the Creo Assembly 

Your 3DCS model can be stored in the Creo model assembly. This means that where the Creo model goes, so too does the 3DCS model. Where this becomes important is when a PLM system like Windchill becomes involved. Now, whenever you use Windchill to manage your Creo model and version control, you will also be managing your 3DCS model. It also makes it easy to find both your CAD and 3DCS model quickly and continue working or run new analyses. 

Extract and Use Creo GD&T and Joints and Constraints

With 3DCS for Creo you can pull directly from your Creo model. This allows you to apply your GD&T from your Creo model onto your 3DCS model, applying tolerances across your parts. From here, you have the option to simulate and optimize your GD&T. 

With 3DCS Mechanical Modeler Add-on, you can pull Joints and Constraints from your Creo model, instantly adding the assembly process to your 3DCS model. analyzing both the part and process information gives you better understanding of your products true variation. 

Utilize the Creo Assembly Structure

The Creo Assembly Structure stays when you open 3DCS, letting you use it for determining process, and to apply new features. Working both in the CAD and 3DCS makes it easy to make changes and adjustments based on analysis results. 

Combine Point and Feature Based modeling

Use features and points from Creo in your 3DCS model to create feature tolerances and moves. 

Gain access to seamless data sharing between 3DCS and Creo

When the Creo model is updated, so is the 3DCS model. Part changes and new design changes can be quickly and easily incorporated into existing 3DCS models to simulate their effect on overall variation.  

Create Measurement Point Coordination between Creo CAD and 3DCS

Keep all of your measurement point the same when bringing your model from Creo into 3DCS, allowing you to easily assemble and place your parts.
