D-Cubed Collision Detection Manager from UGS PLM Software Licensed by IronCAD to Enable Fast, Accurate Collision Detection and Clearance Computations


UGS PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, and IronCAD, Inc. of Atlanta, today announced that the D Cubed™ Collision Detection Manager (CDM) component software has been licensed for use in the IronCAD 3D mechanical design application. The CDM software is the fourth product from the UGS PLM Components family licensed by IronCAD, expanding on its existing use of UGS Parasolid™ modeling kernel software and its D-Cubed 2D and 3D Dimensional Constraint Manager parametric solving software systems.

“We are very pleased with the capabilities, quality and product support associated with the three UGS PLM Components that we currently license from UGS PLM Software, so we have no hesitation in selecting the D-Cubed CDM,” said Cary O’Connor, director of Product Marketing for IronCAD. “The use of the CDM will enable us to bring interactive, accurate collision detection and clearance computation capabilities to our users much more rapidly and cost effectively than would otherwise be possible.”

Easily integrated and widely adopted in a variety of CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM systems, the CDM is used in UGS NX™ and UGS Solid Edge™ products, as well as SolidWorks from SolidWorks Corporation, Autodesk Inventor from Autodesk Inc., and many other applications. The CDM enables CAD users to interact with their assemblies and mechanisms with significantly improved realism and confidence, resulting in increased productivity by eliminating design errors caused by interfering parts. D-Cubed CDM’s exceptional performance enables CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) and CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine) users to run their off-line programming simulations with very high levels of accuracy, avoiding expensive collisions between tools/probes and the machining/measurement environment.

“The licensing by IronCAD of the fourth product from our UGS PLM Components portfolio exemplifies our ongoing commitment to delivering innovative component technologies to the market under our ‘level playing field’ business model,” said Chuck Grindstaff, executive vice president, Products, UGS PLM Software. “This license further establishes UGS PLM Software as the leading supplier of component technologies to the CAD, CAM, CAE and PLM markets.”
