D-Cubed 2D DCM and 3D DCM from Siemens PLM Software Integrated into Sescoi's WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling

PLANO, Texas, June 8, 2010 – 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 Sescoi International, a leading provider of CAD/CAM software products, today announced the integration of D-Cubed™ software components from Siemens PLM Software into Sescoi International’s new WorkNC-CAD® Hybrid Modeling product.

WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling is optimized for the CAD requirements of manufacturers. Parametric sketching and parametric assembly modeling are powered by the D-Cubed 2D and 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM and 3D DCM) respectively. These solutions are part of Siemens PLM Software’s PLM Components portfolio and are licensed under the company’s unique open business model. In WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling, new surface design capabilities are tightly integrated with solid modeling functionality. Curves and surfaces can be manipulated, and models repaired, to prepare them for efficient manufacture using Sescoi’s WorkNC® automatic 2 to 5-axis CAM software.

Both D-Cubed 2D and 3D DCM components have also been integrated into Sescoi’s WorkNC-Wire EDM (Electrical Discharge Machining) application. This product enables manufacturers to rapidly extract cross sections and surface data from the CAD model ready for 2 or 4 axis wire eroding operations.

“The new CAD capabilities launched in WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling and WorkNC-Wire EDM are tuned to the requirements of our WorkNC manufacturing applications,” said Bruno Marko, President and CEO of Sescoi International. “As our customers’ CAM-oriented parametric design requirements have evolved, the D-Cubed 2D and 3D DCM geometric constraint solvers have coped easily with these ever more demanding applications. Their advanced state of development and market-proven capabilities make the 2D and 3D DCM the most appropriate components to meet our current and future demands.”

“We are delighted to see the 2D and 3D DCM applied to the CAM-oriented requirements of Sescoi’s CAD offerings, reinforcing their status as by far the most widely used geometric constraint solvers across the CAD, CAM and CAE markets,” said Joan Hirsch, vice president, Product Design Solutions, Siemens PLM Software. “The 2D and 3D DCM have a customer base of unrivalled size and diversity stretching back over 20 years. This provides a uniquely sustained and intensive range of drivers for our continuous improvements to the functionality, quality and performance of these market-leading geometric constraint solving components.”
