Siemens PLM Software and Vero Software Plc announced the integration of the D-Cubed software 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM) component from Siemens PLM Software into Vero’s VISI Progress software.
VISI Progress targets the metal stamping industry and enables efficient design of progressive dies and press tools. Progressive stamping is the process of creating parts by starting with a strip of metal and then applying a series of operations such as coining, punching, and bending. VISI Progress enables the 3D modeling of the dies and strip at each step in the process from blank to finished component.
The integration of the D-Cubed 2D DCM into version 17 of VISI Progress helps to ensure that the complex relationships in a model are accurately maintained when modifications to the strip layout parameters are made. You can make changes to the step length and strip width and VISI Progress will automatically update the previously constructed punch geometry and rebuild the strip. This integration joins Vero’s existing implementation of the D-Cubed 2D DCM inside VISI Parametric Page (formerly VISI Storyboard). Integrated into more than three million end-user products, the D-Cubed 2D DCM is one of the world’s most widely used 2D geometric constraint solver.
