Optimizing DMU Processes

With the latest version of 3D_Evolution 4.0, the German-French software manufacturer CoreTechnologie provides an innovative software to optimize DMU processes. The DMU Inspector Software Suite has functions such as collision and clearance control, as well as a geometric model comparison. Due to the multiprocessor calculation and an intelligent neighbor search, the calculation is accelerated and scalable. Calculation takes place on the exact B-Rep description so that a precise distinction can be made between contact and penetration.

Using the new software, work is easier for users due to a clearly arranged, graphically based presentation of results. Supplementing this, the 3D_Analyser module quickly visualizes the analysis results as 3-D models, enabling a simple geometric security of large volumes.

In order to manage numerous product variants and development statuses, special filter functions are carried out in the DMU Inspector Software Suite, as well as an intelligent calculation of different revisions. In case of a volume revision, only modified parts and their neighbors are considered, so calculation time is minimized. During the process, fingerprints of allowed collisions can be saved so that they are marked as irrelevant in components that are used again. The tool is flexibly useable for common formats such as JT with PLMXML data structure, as well as CATIA V5, NX and Creo.
