Vero Software has integrated components of Siemens PLM Software’s D-Cubed software to enable users to perform motion studies directly within its Visi 21 design and manufacturing solution for the mold and die industry. D-Cubed’s AEM (Assembly Engineering Manager) and CDM (Collision Detection Manager) allow for simulating the operation and interaction of mold and die components such as gear racks, cams, sliders, lifters and fixtures. AEM models the behavior of parts as they collide and interact, and can take into account the effects of various forces and engineering devices in motion simulation. CDM provides rapid and accurate collision detection during motion studies.

Vero now licenses all six components in the D-Cubed family. It currently uses D-Cubed 3D DCM (Dimensional Constraint Manager) for assembly part positioning in Visi, and 2D DCM was recently implemented in its Edgecam system for NC part programming to provide parametric sketching capabilities.
