CD-Adapco, a provider of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) solutions for manufacturers, has licensed Siemens’ D-Cubed software to be used in their STAR-CCM+ products. CD-Adapco selected D-Cubed 2-D DCM (Dimensional Constraint Manager) to provide the geometric constraint solving capability that is fundamental to many modern computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE) software applications. CD-Adapco will deploy 2-D DCM to replace their current commercial geometric constraint solver. D-Cubed components are developed by Siemens’ PLM software business unit.
"CD-Adapco is focused on providing our customers with a powerful integrated modeling capability,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, senior vice president product management, CD-Adapco. “When we decided to enhance our parametric sketcher, we turned to Siemens, the industry’s most open and trusted supplier, to provide a new geometric constraint solving engine to support this important objective. We found that D-Cubed 2-D DCM offers improved functionality, performance and quality. Leading component software technology combined with Siemens’ stability and service excellence made this the right decision for CD-Adapco and our customers.”
“The fact that a leading CFD software provider like CD-Adapco is extending their commitment to Siemens and replacing their existing constraint solver with our D-Cubed 2-DDCM is a strong endorsement of Siemens’ technical leadership,” said Paul Sicking, senior vice president, chief technology office, Siemens PLM Software. “Siemens is committed to providing open software components that allow software providers to enhance their solutions for design, engineering and manufacturing.”
