UGS, announced ABAQUS, Inc., has selected 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM) component software from their D-Cubed subsidiary for use in ABAQUS/CAE. Using geometric dimensions and constraints, D-Cubed's 2D DCM component "sketcher" software will provide a constraint-based sketching environment, significantly enhancing its usability and parametric modeling capabilities. The robust, industry-tested solution is a compelling economic alternative to resource-intensive in-house development that can free their resources for development tasks that focus on their own areas of expertise.
