GM has worked hand-in-hand with UGS to define its engineers' needs regarding knowledge-based tools and digital math models , says Ron Debrabant , director of CAD/CAM Integration and Design Processes at GM.They met our needs and delivered value in both these areas with UG WAVE technology.This software will enable GM to implement a total systems engineering approach to vehicle design and significantly reduce the time it takes to design the entire vehicle.GM's process for die design and manufacturing is one area where the company has seen dramatic gains using UG WAVE.The aggressive implementation of Unigraphics with Predictive Engineering represents a competitive differentiator for GM and its suppliers..
In addition to iMAN and Unigraphics , GM will also continue to benefit from other UGS products such as ProductVision , an integrated viewing and interactive visualization tool , and Parasolid , UGS' industry-leading kernel solid modeling product that provides GM with a digital math pipeline.

SolidView 3.0 supports a number of 2D vector formats, including CGM, HPGL, HPGL2, and 2D DXF , as well as popular raster formats such as BMP, TIFF, PCT, and JPG.Text files may also be imported, making it easy to add existing textual and report information to SolidView files.Once a 2D object has been loaded into SolidView, the user can move, scale or clip the image as needed.For example, a user may want to only show a particular GD&T frame that is currently part of a complete engineering drawing.
