View and Compare CATDrawing files

The ability to visually compare 2D drawing files is helpful to quickly identify the changes in CAD drawing revisions or versions.

A typical 2D drawing is revised many number of times during the course of a design cycle and many a times even during subsequent batch manufacturing. No matter how small or big the change is, it usually takes lot of time to study these changes. A visual highlighter that identifying these changes significantly reduces the time taken to assimilate and continue with the next step of the design cycle.

With the aim to enable fast CAD drawing comparison, we now have Compare tool in Glovius 2D Viewer as well. Glovius 2D compare helps you to identify the following changes :

  1. Any addition, deletion and modification of views
  2. Any changes in the geometry of the model
  3. Any changes in PMI information like balloons, datum planes, measurement values etc
compare 2D, compare 2d drawings

Compare any two CATDrawing files

All you need to do is Start Glovius 2D app, click on the Compare tool, browse to the drawing versions and hit Compare to visualize the differences between the two revisions of the 2D drawing file.

Download Glovius today and try the all new Glovius 2D Compare tool. The tool currently supports comparison of Catia drawing ( .CATDrawing ) files with support for other formats coming shortly.

Ordinate Measurement in Glovius

Ordinate dimensions are continuous measurements from a reference entity. This style of measurement is typically useful for analyzing manufacturing operations where relative distance between entities is required. For example, if you need to calculate the amount of travel of a tool bit and need to measure the distances between drilled holes in a component, ordinate measurement helps you to quickly figure out the distances between holes and the standard reference entity.

In the latest release, we have added a new feature that enables you to continually drop the ordinate dimensions. This tool is located in the Measure tab. Select an entity ( a point or edge ) that serves as the reference. Now continue selection along a axis to place the ordinates dimensions.
