PLM Components

3D Software Development Toolkits for CAD, CAM, CAE & Robotics

PLM Components

PLM Components are 3D software development toolkits that increase the value of CAD, CAM, CAE and related PLM applications by reducing the time, cost and risk of delivering 3D software innovation to your customers.

More than 240 companies integrate PLM Components into 350 commercial applications for the benefit of six million end-users. We use PLM Components in our own applications and also license them to independent software vendors (ISVs).

Licensing components to build a new software application – rather than reinventing the wheel with a proprietary solution – is often an easy decision. For more established software applications, switching to an alternative solution for innovative design, manufacturing or simulation capabilities may require more careful consideration. A broad set of benefits makes licensing our solutions an attractive option for new and established 3D software development companies.

Kineo

Kineo components enable automatic path planning, high-speed collision detection and predictive cable performance. Applications include robotics and digital mock-up across a wide range of industries.

 

D-Cubed

D-Cubed

D-Cubed components are licensed by leading CAD, CAM, and CAE software developers to provide a wide range of productivity-enhancing functionality. Applications include parametric sketching, assembly constraints, motion simulation, collision detection, and hidden line drawing.

 

Parasolid

Parasolid is the leading 3D geometric modeling component and core technology in NX and Solid Edge software. Independent software vendors (ISVs) use Parasolid to develop applications for product design, manufacturing and analysis.

 

JT

Siemens PLM Components provides tools such as the JT Open Toolkit, JT Utilities, JT Unity Plug-in and the PLM XML SDK for application developers. In addition, Siemens PLM Components coordinates and facilitates the JT Open Program and delivers the industry-leading, no charge 3D JT viewer, JT2Go.

 

 Geolus Shape Search

Geolus Shape Search

Sometimes the best part to re-use is the one whose name you do not know. Re-use is an effective way to increase efficiency. Re-use frees resources that can be applied elsewhere. Finding parts is critical to effective re-use, but how do you search with confidence when parts are inconsistently named? You search by shape, the one characteristic similar parts are guaranteed to share. Shape search supports many processes including design, procurement, part management, and classification.

 

Visualization

Visualization

A critical part of PLM software is the graphical support that enables colleagues, partners, and customers to view parts and processes. It is an essential method of communication. Visualization requirements vary with use case and environment. We offer a choice of software development toolkits ensuring our customers their preferred visualization in their application or a web browser.
