Glovius offers a number of tools that are purpose built for analyzing part designs. These tools help you analyze the design of the part and the ease of manufacturing. These tools have a wide variety of applications such as – Calculate the extents of the part design using the Analyze tool. Visualize the internals of a component using advanced Section tool
The ability to determine the material distribution and the corresponding thickness or thinness of a casting part is crucial for its design and manufacturing. Non optimal values of the part leads to issues in its performance during use. Thin wall sections may be structurally weak causing the component to fail during operational use while over compensated thick portions lead to an increase in the weight of the component and hence the subsequent cost to manufacture.
Many of our users are in Automotive and Aerospace industries and use CATIA as the CAD software of choice. Glovius helps you view your CATIA V5 files without the need of a CATIA license. Glovius supports 3D Geometry, PMI information and Captures data stored in CATIA parts (CATPart) and assembly (CATProduct) files.
Glovius can export 3D parts and assemblies to HTML file format. This helps you view your 3D parts and assemblies on any modern browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari or Microsoft Edge. As all PC’s today have a browser installed by default, the 3DHTML format would work on any machine without the need to install any application or a plugin to view 3D CAD parts and assemblies.
Collaboration among teams and references to contextual 3D data is essential during the design life cycle of a component. To enable faster collaboration and providing contextual information, Glovius has an inbuilt 3D PDF report generator. Using this tool, you can generate a single, concise 3DPDF report containing the prominent information about the component.
Technical Drawings or 2D drawings as they are popularly known convey lot of instantly glance-able information. Due to the international adoption of drawing standards these drawings are especially useful in collaboration by capturing the geometric features of the components. We had many of our users asking for support to 2D files.
Many Glovius users are from Purchasing and Should Costing teams. Product designers need to identify unproductive manufacturing costs early in the product life cycle. Designers and Program Planners are faced with stringent cost targets as companies optimize to provide maximum product value.
Glovius has number of tools to quickly calculate and surface meta data associated with the CAD components. We recently introduced a new parameter to calculate the billet size needed to manufacture the component and the corresponding wastage of raw material in subsequent manufacturing steps.
CAD assemblies can become complex with many components, metadata, PMIs or associated data. Glovius offers a number of tools specifically designed for quick analysis and inspection of CAD assembly files. Lets explore these tools in detail –
Today PDF file format has become the standard for sharing read only version of files. The main advantages of a PDF document is its accessibility on multiple platforms and familiarity with the free readers available in the market. 3D PDF files are also self-contained and can be used for collaboration or archival purposes.
