The New SOLIDWORKS WORLD - 3DEXPERIENCE WORLD 2020

Impressions and Experiences - Jetpacks, Magic Wheelchairs, High-tech Prosthesis - From the New SOLIDWORKS World - 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020

SOLIDWORKS World was re-branded as 3DEXPERIENCE World for 2020 to bring together the entire Dassault Systemes' community in sharing their experiences, expertise, and upcoming releases. 

3DEXPERIENCE World is over now, but we saw some incredible creations and passionate people working hard to improve other's way of life and push the boundaries of current technology.

DCS to Unveil New Product 3DCS for SOLIDWORKS - at 3DEXPERIENCE WORLD

The New Version of 3DCS - 3DCS for SOLIDWORKS - Will be Showcased at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020

3DCS for SOLIDWORKS is available now, and will be demonstrated at booth 218 at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 next week, Feb 9 -12, 2020.  

DCS is proud to be presenting the new version of 3DCS as 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020, previously SOLIDWORKS World. Demoing the 3DCS for SOLIDWORKS from Booth 218, DCS will be helping attendees understand how tolerance analysis can help discover problems in the digital phase, and by making design changes before any products are made, save a great deal of time and money.

SOLIDWORKS Tolerance Analysis - Why Manufacturing Simulation Matters

Manufacturing Simulation Takes Tolerance Analysis to the Next Level

Tolerance Analysis often refers to just part tolerance stacks, leaving out a large piece of the big picture

Common tolerance analysis determines the combined variation from a series of interconnected parts in a one-dimensional or two-dimensional stack, such as below. Done commonly in Excel, these analyses are excellent for quick answers and simple assemblies. They do fall short quickly when you need to consider larger number of components, parts in three-dimensional configurations, and of course, starting over every time there is a design change or different output needed. The example below also depicts some complications with even a basic one dimensional stack.

Model Variants - New for 3DCS Tolerance Analysis! Create Different Tolerance, Assembly and Tooling Configurations in One Model

New For 3DCS Tolerance Analysis Software - Model Variants

The Upcoming Version 7.6 of 3DCS offers the ability to create Model Variants - Different configurations of Moves, Tolerances and Tooling in the same model to test and validate processes. 

In design, different methods of assembly, tolerance schemes, and tooling / fixturing need to be considered. Oftentimes, on the same model, there are a plethora of assembly processes that can be used to achieve the same end result. Some of these processes cost more, some are more complicated and some require special skills. The question Designers and Engineers ask when designing their product is; which process and what tolerance should I use?
