Glovius 3D CAD Viewer – Blog

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

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.

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. 

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.

HCL’s Glovius solution meets all three business challenges and delivers important capabilities into the hands of downstream users of design data within the organization and the supply chain.

Glovius for Part Design Analysis

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

Thickness Analysis of Parts

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.
