3DCS, CATIA V5, Cache Mode and You

3DCS and CATIA V5, together, offer great tools for a robust user experience. One such tool is called Cache Mode. Cache Mode in CATIA V5 offers flexibility when building a Tolerance Model in 3DCS. When Cache Mode is activated, large amounts of data is stored in a folder, reducing the overall size of an assembly. For 3DCS users, this means building and running Simulations of an entire vehicle can be greatly improved; opening large assemblies will take less time to load; and will reduce stress on the computer and the user.
