Dimensional Constraint Manager (DCM) components for variational modeling is an application of the 3D DCM in direct 3D variational control of the shape of CAD models. Until now, the 3D DCM has focused on assembly positioning and mechanism simulation applications, in which each part is treated as a rigid object. Direct variational part modeling is a topical new area of functionality, enabling CAD systems to reduce their reliance on older, less powerful, history-based techniques.
The rear window on Ford's Lightweight Concept vehicle, based on the Fusion model, is made with a material combination devised by SABIC that saves 35% of the weight. The car's overall weight is 25% lighter than a standard production 2013 Fusion.
