3DCS Visualization Export

Improve Your Product's Perceived Quality Through Visualization Studies in Leading Tools: Deltagen, VRED, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE, Keyshot, Design Studio and More

What is Perceived Quality?

Perceived Quality is the quality attributed to a product based on its perceptual experience. This incorporates the experience a customer has with a product and how it makes them feel about that product. 
Bringing together the shape, the appearance, the texture, and physical feel of the product as well as the emotional experience of using the product, Perceived Quality directly affects the opinion of the value of the product. This perceived value then drives the business forward. 
Visualization Export gives engineers the ability to view simulations of their final product's variation to make decisions about design early in the Product Life Cycle that will ultimately affect their customers' Perceived Quality of the product.

Make Early Design Decisions Based on Virtual Prototypes

Reduce the need for physical prototypes through Visualization

Perceived Quality Studies are a means of communicating quality objectives and attainable quality levels between Design and Engineering teams. This process incorporates iterative studies to determine acceptable aesthetic levels and then confirms manufacturing's ability to meet those objectives. 

Create a 3DCS Model to View Virtual Prototypes

Simulation Studies

Complete the Tolerance Analysis Model by adding assembly processes and production tolerances within the given design parameters. 


  • Create Moves (Assembly Process)
  • Modify Tolerances to Engineering Specifications
  • Run Monte Carlo Simulations 
  • View Results of Monte Carlo Simulations using Visualization

View Expected Variation to Determine Specification Tolerances

Reduce the need for physical prototypes through Visualization

Steps in a Perceived Quality driven PLM Cycle:

  • Design Spec Studies and Visualization
  • Review Specifications (ex. Gap and Flush) and Determine Objectives
  • Create Tolerance Analysis Models and run Monte Carlo Simulations
  • Share and Approve/Reject Results

Key Features

Fast Gap and Flush Studies

See Gap and Flush studies using powerful visualization. Change gap and flush dimensions with the click of a button to view different specifications and determine their impact on Perceived Quality.

Digital Twins - Virtual Prototypes

Use single button updates to quickly swap out part variants and view them with variation, seeing how your product will look when manufactured. Save valuable time waiting on prototypes. 

Spec Studies - Early Specifications

Use 3DCS Spec Studies to set conditions across your product, seeing how multiple gaps, and flushes, as well as part angles can affect the appearance of your product. 

Simulation Studies - View Analysis Results

Combine Monte Carlo analysis results with visualization to pick out specific samples to view using High-End Visualization tools. 

Plug Into Any High-End Visualization Tool

With easy to use outputs from 3DCS, use any visualization tool that you're comfortable with. 

View Multiple Variants Instantly

Swap between different product variants, part variants, and studies fast without having to model each part in a different position, or remodel the entire product. 

Design Fast Visualization Studies

Before getting any manufacturing tolerances, use SPEC STUDIES to set Gap and Flush conditions to determine maximum and minimum acceptable levels.
