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.
Various cad tools available in Glovius.
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 –
A bill of materials (bill of material or BOM) is a list of the constituents of an assembly. In Glovius, you can use the BoM tool to view the Bill of Materials and also export BoM reports in PDF or CSV documents. The BoM report in PDF consists of the Name, Quantity, Extent dimensions and a reference image for quick identification in assembling operations.
Using Glovius, you can compare any two 3D models to find out the differences. Use the Compare feature to visually see the changes in any two versions of a 3D component. You can compare 3D part and assembly files from various formats such as Siemens NX, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER & Creo, CATIA V5, STEP, IGES and many more.
Today, I am pleased to introduce Glovius for Windows, a free JT viewer with inbuilt add-on architecture. Glovius is a high performance 3D visualization tool with an easy to use interface and a modern look and feel. The user interface has a familiar Microsoft Outlook layout, with panels on the left and the ribbon interface on top.
