Design is an iterative process. As the design of a component is fine-tuned, some features are added, altered or completely removed. This leads to successive iterations of 3D files with differences that are difficult to communicate with the extended team, especially since the changes are iterative with very minor visual modifications.
Using Glovius, you can compare any two 3D models to find out the differences. Use the Compare feature to visually see the changes in any two versions of a 3D component. You can compare 3D part and assembly files from various formats such as Siemens NX, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER & Creo, CATIA V5, STEP, IGES and many more.
The example above highlights the differences between two versions of an assembly. The result is shown with the unchanged (translucent), added (shown in green) and removed (shown in red) information. You can also save a report of the changes or compare attribute information and assembly structure that is different within these files.
The 3D Compare feature is available with the Pro Plan ($39/month, free 7-day trial). Compare feature is also included in Glovius CAD Viewer bundles for CATIA V4/V5, NX, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks & STEP/IGES.
