Glovius 3D CAD Viewer – Blog

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

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.

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.

View CATIA Parts and Assemblies with Glovius

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.

Export 3D Components to HTML

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.

Generate Quick 3D PDF Reports using Glovius

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.

Introducing Glovius 2D Viewer

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.
