PRESS RELEASE

3DCS Multi-CAD is now available to HWPA customers

Following a partnership between Altair’s HyperWorks Partner Alliance and Dimensional Control Systems (DCS), the latter’s product, 3DCS Variation Analyst Multi-CAD (3DCS Multi-CAD), is now available to HWPA customers through the partner programme. The solution performs tolerance analysis, predicting the amount of variation inherent in designs and identifying the sources of that variation.

In addition to 3DCS Multi-CAD, DCS is providing 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler (FEA CM) as an add-on solution to enable users to accurately model variation of compliant parts and assemblies. FEA CM incorporates variation from clamping, welding, springback and stresses on a vast array of materials and assembly methods into a 3DCS model. 3DCS Multi-CAD and 3DCS FEA Compliant Modeler provide fast visualisation of these deformations and predicted results, as well as targeted studies for the evaluation of advanced design concepts.
