DCS Software Announcement
Dimensional Control Systems Inc. (DCS) announces the release of 3DCS Analyst SA (Stand Alone) version 18.104.22.168 for Multi CAD
Troy, Michigan U.S.A, October 14th, 2009 – Dimensional Control Systems Incorporated (DCS), the world leader in the field of Dimensional Engineering and Tolerance Analysis, announced today the availability of 3DCS Analyst Stand Alone version 22.214.171.124 for Multi CAD on both Windows XP 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. Version 126.96.36.199 includes many new and exciting enhancements to increase modeling performance and accuracy while maintaining the quality our users have come to know and expect. Because many of these enhancements are customer driven, we feel that we have hit the mark yet again delivering best-in-class tolerance analysis software, which help our customers develop higher-quality products at a lower cost.
“DCS’s commitment to excellence remains our top priority,” said Robert Kaphengst, President and CEO. “We continue to advance our software to be more efficient and easier to use while still delivering accurate results with the goal of
simulating reality,” he added. “The recent release of 3DCS Analyst SA delivers on that promise.”
3DCS Analyst SA
Tolerance Analysis is used to ‘drive’ the design (both geometry and tolerances) to meet defined quality and cost requirements while meeting component manufacturers’ capabilities. 3DCS Analyst SA software offers engineers the opportunity to optimize component tolerances and maximize quality while minimizing costs. The optimal time to complete the variation analysis is as early in the product's lifecycle as possible to make the most impact to the overall design quality. Whether the quality characteristics are for fit, finish / aesthetic properties, or functional requirements, 3DCS can definitely be used to improve the assembly quality.
3DCS gives users the ability to evaluate design and assembly concepts up front, where problems can be identified early in the product development lifecycle. Optimizing for dimensional integrity improves the robustness of the design and process by maximizing part tolerances while maintaining the dimensional requirements of final assemblies.
Best-in-Class Tolerance Analysis
DCS firmly believes that the ‘voice of the customer’ plays a major role in software development. 3DCS Analyst SA 188.8.131.52 clearly reflects this with hundreds of new customer driven enhancements. From the release of the FEA Compliant Modeler and Advanced Analyzer and Optimizer modules to a tighter integration with JT, SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA V4 & V5, Pro/E, UG CAD files to improved tolerance optimization to more precise GD&T validation, 3DCS is clearly positioned as the most comprehensive, in-depth tolerance analysis solution on the market. DCS’s dominance in the field of tolerance analysis ensures that the needs of our customers across numerous industries including Automotive, Aerospace, Consumer Goods, High Tech, Medical/Surgical and E&E are being addressed.
