New version maximizes users’ productivity and efficiency gains

While other products include support for a few CAD systems, no other product that we know of has built-in translators to support all of them.

Dimensional Control Systems, Inc. (DCS), provider of dimensional engineering software solutions and consulting services, today announced the release a new version of its industry-leading quality data analysis and reporting software, GDM-3D, with enhancements that dramatically increase efficiencies for users.

Like all GDM-3D versions, Version 7.0 is commonized and interoperable with 3DCS tolerance analysis software; these features are enhanced in this version to improve its support of the overall DCS closed loop solution. Version 7.0 also simplifies the CAD translation process for users of all CAD systems, and includes numerous ease-of-use enhancements.

This new software includes built-in CAD translation that allows users to work directly, and seamlessly, with CAD file formats including CATIA V4, CATIA V5, ProEngineer, UG-NX, Parasolid, Solidworks and JT.

“GDM-3D’s multi-CAD capabilities in Version 7.0 bring even more flexibility, contributing to a level of efficiency users can’t get from any other product,” said Thagu Vivek, product development manager. “Its seamless links to 3DCS software and its built-in CAD translation set this product apart for its users.”

He continued, “While similar products on the market include support for a few select CAD systems with limited functionality, no other product that we know of has built-in translators to support all of them while maintaining a powerful, user-friendly report generation and analysis tool set.”

Other enhancements that make GDM-3D Version 7.0 even easier to use than previous versions include:

  •     All menu icons updated with more user-friendly and graphical images
  •     Ability to create and display new measurements based on measured features
  •     Ability to auto-distribute charts to new pages based on various feature parameters
