Mumbai, India (PRWEB) April 17, 2007
Geometric Software Solutions (Geometric), a leader in product lifecycle management (PLM) services and technologies and a Dassault Systèmes CAA V5 Gold Partner, today announced the release of GeomCaliper TM version 2.0 for CATIA V5®.
GeomCaliper is an innovative tool for measuring and checking wall thickness. In this new fully integrated release, available for CATIA V5 R15 and later versions, designers will be able to perform sophisticated thickness analysis without ever leaving their CATIA session.
"GeomCaliper has proven to be a valuable tool in our campaign to keep quality up and costs down," said Scott Lanski, Design Manager at Daimler Chrysler Corporation. "Integrating GeomCaliper into our design process has resulted in a 75% reduction in the time taken to check wall thickness of complex models and also allowed us to discover those hidden critical areas that otherwise may have gone undetected."
By providing immediate design feedback and significant time savings in thickness analysis, GeomCaliper quickly locates thin areas in plastic molded components that may result in warps, thick sections in castings that may result in hot spots, or other hidden critical regions.
"For customers designing castings or products made of plastic parts, in processes such as automotive powertrain or consumer goods design, wall thickness analysis is an important step to be embedded within the whole engineering process," said Philippe Laufer, vice president CATIA R&D, Dassault Systèmes. "With its precise thickness computation methods and innovative visualization, GeomCaliper, developed by our Gold Partner, Geometric Software, is a perfect tool for wall thickness analysis, complementing CATIA PLM Solutions; I foresee enthusiastic acceptance of this product by our installed base.
A free 15-day trial version is available from http://geomcaliper.geometricsoftware.com. A basic version of GeomCaliper is available in Part Design workbench for visualization and analysis.
