Benefits of CAD Integration
“A tight integration of 3DCS within CATIA V5 extends opportunities for design and manufacturing to truly become allies in producing exciting products in an increasingly competitive world,” said John Mathieson, DCS Executive VP and COO. “Tolerance analysis has long been a valuable tool for reducing manufacturing costs by improving productivity. However, it is the integration of tolerance analysis in the early design stages, when little information is available on process capability that has been a difficult matter to address, usually requiring many iterations between design and manufacturing. The philosophy of ‘getting the design right the first time’ really brings home the need for proactive tolerance analysis which is fully immersed into the CAD environment.”
“Tolerance Analysis continues to be a critical aspect of the design process for our customers,” said Dominique Gaunet, CATIA R&D Domain Leader 3D Tolerancing Products & Drafting, Dassault Systèmes. “The deep and seamless integration of 3DCS into CATIA V5 design and manufacturing solutions is required to achieve both cost reductions and product quality improvement. The release of 3DCS CAA V5 Based version 18.104.22.168 and the partnership with DCS is a testament to our ongoing strategy to expand the Dassault Systèmes partner ecosystem to include best-in-class simulation solutions for a comprehensive range of applications.”
