D-Cubed 3D DCM, HLM and CDM to Enhance Specialty Vehicle Configuration and Optimization Software
PLANO, Texas – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, and Certusoft, Inc., a pioneer in the field of sales and engineering automation, today announced that three of Siemens PLM Software’s D-Cubed™ components will be integrated and released in the Certusoft Configurator application.
Certusoft Configurator provides the heavy duty vehicle supply chain with advanced collaborative tools for visualization, configuration, physics-based optimization and order management. These tools increase productivity in engineered-to-order transactions of specialty vehicles, such as rescue, refuse and construction vehicles, from manufacturing to the point-of-sale.
Certusoft has licensed the D-Cubed 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (3D DCM) to support the automated 3D assembly of integrated chassis and body configurations and to enable users to configure their models interactively. The result will be an even more productive configuration environment that will benefit users, from manufacturing engineers to point-of-sale professionals. D-Cubed 3D DCM is the industry’s preferred component for implementing assembly modeling functionality in a wide range of design applications.
The D-Cubed Collision Detection Manager (CDM) will be integrated by Certusoft into its Configurator application to ensure that the configured products have no interfering parts, eliminating re-work associated with these types of issues. Already well-established in many mechanical CAD applications, D-Cubed CDM is optimized for fast and accurate collision and clearance calculations between assembly components.
The D-Cubed Hidden Line Manager (HLM) will be used in the Certusoft Configurator to improve the automated production of drawings that provide users with highly accurate visual representations of the configured products. D-Cubed HLM is a proven component for engineering drawing and technical illustration, with production usage exceeding two million seats.
“Product innovation and excellence are key targets in our business development strategy, making the D-Cubed components the obvious solution for meeting our critical 3D modeling objectives,” said Sermet Yucel, president of Certusoft. “Our customers demand strong commitments to quality and functionality. Licensing solutions from Siemens PLM Software will enable us to fulfill those commitments more rapidly and with full peace of mind.”
“Companies are looking for every means possible to remain successful in these difficult economic times,” said Joan Hirsch, vice president of Product Design Solutions, Siemens PLM Software. “As organizations like Certusoft continue to license our solutions, it serves to validate the role that D-Cubed components serve in helping companies innovate cost-effectively and with minimum risk. We welcome Certusoft to the wide community of adopters we continue to serve as they strengthen their product portfolios with proven technology from Siemens PLM Software.”
