LEDAS Ltd. has announced the availability of version 2.0 of its LGS 3D geometric constraint solver. As a core component of parametric 3D modeling applications, LGS 3D allows users to express their designs through geometric constraints and driving dimensions.
Since its first release in 2005, a dozen CAD/CAM/CAE vendors have licensed the LGS 3D software component, embedding it into applications that perform assembly design, motion simulation, and history-free 3D geometry editing. The new LGS 3D version 2.0 boosts performance and improves stability.
A new API function supports the definition of simultaneous movements by several geometric objects, each with a different rotation and translation. On the application side, version 2.0 defines optional memory management tools for controlling and optimizing memory use.
The time LGS 3D takes to solve constraints has been significantly reduced, according to the company. It is now up to 10 times faster than v1.5 for large models. The over-defined constraint diagnostics algorithm has also been improved.
