Learn about GGCM

GGCM is a 2D/3D integrated, fully variational constraint manager, providing technology-leading variational solving for assembly management, part design, curve and surface editing, robotics, smooth kinematic motion simulation, and other application areas. GGCM offers superior solvability, performance and behaviour, and is extensible giving vast control and independence to the Client system.

GGCM is based on breakthrough non-linear equation solving technology that uniquely solves configurations and problems of different types, sizes and complexities, with superior results to other known approaches.

GGCM is equipped with a simple C/C++ API for integration into any Client software system.

ALS offers extensive support to developers working with GGCM, including technical documentation, free evaluations with technical support, ready-to-compile examples, and a complete Open Source application framework.
