CAD modeling and simulation is now a standard in many manufacturing businesses. These same manufacturers understand that measuring completed parts, and measuring incoming parts from suppliers, is an important part of validating quality. What Model Based Definition offers is the ability to use the completed CAD model and analysis to drive the entire quality process, creating a single source for specifications and quality information that, when applied throughout production, allows for manufacturing correlation and powerful problem solving to improve quality at every stage of the product lifecycle.

Creating accurate models can be difficult. There are a variety of steps and tools that need to be used in order to get results that can be applied to manufacturing with confidence.
Modeling and simulation are important to reducing costs, but can be intimidating prospects for new users.
3DCS, by its very nature of being an advanced tolerance analysis tool, can be complicated for new users. Many of these users are at a loss when it comes to starting a new model on their own. Here is a checklist to help you with your modeling process.

UPDATE: The link to download the WHAT's NEW pdf has been fixed! We apologize for the trouble.
The new version of 3DCS includes improvements and new features that both improve tolerance analysis, but also improve the speed at which the results are delivered.

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.

Nearly 50 visitors from industries like automotive, aviation, engineering and machining took part in the 3DCS User Meeting held in Stuttgart, Germany this week. Hosted by DCS Reseller CENIT, the event showcased new technology in tolerance analysis, as well as the combination of manufacturing software and simulation software to improve production quality and problem solving.

The Closed Loop webinar signaled the end to the Performance Improvement Webinar Series. These five webinars followed the FEA Compliant Modeler series and are very valuable to any 3DCS user. Designed with a teaching methodology in mind, these webinars were created to show how to use new features as well as how to take advantage of existing features. Make sure to use these and all the other webinars and videos DCS provides to improve your modeling skills.

As an integrated tolerance analysis software, 3DCS utilizes Creo PMI to validate design objectives and simulate potential build issues. To use PMI in your tolerance analysis software, you first have to create it in Creo. For this tutorial, the terms GD&T and PMI are used interchangeably.

DCS is hosting two webinars in October to help users learn advanced skills to improve their tolerance analyses.
October 12th - Black Box Methodology -- How to use Black Boxing in your model to simplify your models and make large models load faster and run smoother. Excellent for team based modeling.
October 26th - How To Do Closed Loop Quality -- How to incorporate real data into your analysis. Find mean shifts, root cause production issues, test changes.
