Expanding Model Based Definition Across the Organization 

Create user groups of tools based on complexity and accessibility. With 3DCS Viewer accessible to a larger group, you can bring real 3D Model-Based Definition into your organization to drive your Digital Transformation, leveraging information in the model instead of 2D outputs and reports. 

3DCS Viewer 

View Dimensional Variation Analysis DVA models and see the results of analysis as well as inputs, configuration, and assembly method using the 3D model. 

  1. Improve Collaboration between the 3DCS modeling team and all other teams that have a stake in assuring dimensional quality requirements are being achieved.
  2. Democratization (accessible to everyone) of dimensional simulation to more engineers in the dimensional quality value chain.  Utilize Model Based Systems Engineering by providing access to the model instead of 2D outputs. 
  • Opens any 3DCS model (CM, MM with addon license)
  • Animates & Deviates
  • Review contents of Measures & Tolerances 
  • Load Analysis Results and Show \ Min Max
  • Optionally Runs AAO \ GeoFactor Analyzer
  • Supports in all 3DCS Platforms

3DCS Design Variation Modeler DVM

Easy-to-learn and use 3D analysis that provides a more accurate output than 1D stacks in Excel. Allow your Design team and engineers to get answers faster than calculating stack-ups, while preparing the models for more complicated analysis by the CAE team down the line. 

  1. Easy to learn and use 3D Analysis 
  2. Faster and more accurate than a 1D stack
  • Entry-level variation analysis with limited constraint options
  • Equation-based 3D assembly variation
  • Integrated in the major CAD Platforms

3DCS Mechanical Variation Modeler MVM

Designed for mechanical and kinematic products, MVM provides more options than DVM including a larger set of PMI options, the ability to extract assembly constraints from CAD, and analysis of complex and kinematic assemblies. As one of the two intermediate tools, MVM provides a more focused team the tools they need to get answers in order to make important decisions on design and quality. 

  1. Broader PMI options
  2. Extraction of assembly constraints
  3. Analyze more complex assemblies (including kinematic)
  • Intermediate-level variation analysis that utilizes mechanical constraints
  • Monte Carlo and Equation-based 3D assembly variation
  • Integrated in the major CAD Platforms

3DCS Variation Analyst - VA

The flagship version of 3DCS, 3DCS Variation Analyst includes the entire suite of tools for advanced dimensional analysis. As an advanced CAE tool, 3DCS Variation Analyst performs best in the hands of a specialist team looking at complex problems and working to create robust designs that account for variation at both the part level and in the assembly and manufacturing process.  

  1. Full GD&T options for model-based definition
  2. Complex scenarios - hole and pin patterns, finite element analysis, optimizers, gear modeling
  3. Extract PMI, Joints and Constraints from CAD 
  • Advanced-level variation analysis that incorporates complex scenarios, FEA, and advanced options
  • Monte Carlo and Equation-based 3D assembly variation
  • Integrated in the major CAD Platforms
