Welcome to Glovius blog. Read more about Glovius apps on Windows, iPhone, iPad and Android smartphones and tablets.

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.

Democratizing CAD Data Using Advanced CAD Viewers | Blog by Joe Barkai featuring Glovius

Read this blog by renowned industry analyst Joe Barkai, where he discusses the democratization of CAD data and how various departments across the modern enterprise are benefiting from access to CAD data.Joe also shares insights about how two companies (Buck Lighting and the Indian arm of one of Japan’s largest automotive company) use Glovius to provide company wide access to design data to departments such as design, manufacturing, purchase, among others.

Improved Export to 3D HTML from CAD

We recently launched a Glovius Plus plan that allows your to export CAD parts and assemblies to STEP, IGES and Parasolid formats. We are adding even more options to export your CAD files to various formats. In this release, apart from a number of visual and performance improvements, we have added Measure and View analysis tools that adds to the usefulness of 3D HTML files.

Introducing Glovius PLUS – Export CAD to STEP

We are excited to announce a new  Glovius PLUS plan that enables you to export all your 3D CAD parts and assemblies to STEP, IGES, Parasolid, STL and 3MF formats. STEP files have become the de–facto standard in CAD data exchange use cases. Companies are setting up processes to use 3D files for collaboration and communication with their suppliers and extended teams.

CAD Collision Detection Tools

Glovius has the ability to detect collisions in CAD assemblies. The ability to check for collision in an assembly is mainly useful for three reasons :  Check for integrity of CAD assembly : Check if the various components in the assembly have been assembled properly with no overlaps or intersections . Errors or improper mating of assembly constituents result in a flawed design. 

CAD Collaboration with Glovius

During the design cycle various teams are involved in bringing the design from concept to life. This involves collaboration between different teams – Designers, Manufacturing Engineers, QC Engineers, Program Managers, Cost Estimators, Should Costing Teams and many more. Usually, the collaboration across these teams happens with a wide and variety of tools and disparate systems – drawings, image snapshots, derivative reports or sometimes even by email.

New and Improved Measurement

“What can’t be measured, can’t be improved” goes the old management adage. However, this adage can be adapted to engineering as well. Designers and Engineers measure their designs for knowing the intent, check/plan manufacturing steps, check for ease of assembly and a variety of other use cases. Measuring the radius of a hole, the length of an edge, the dimensions of a slot,the area of a face or the angle of axis are all essential tools to understand and analyze designs.
