In this series of posts, we discuss the steps needed to take your manufacturing organization digital by enabling 3D engineering data with purpose-built tools for visualization and analysis, such as HCL Glovius. Part 1,The First Small Step- Gain Giant Benefits, discussed how adopting a tool like Glovius allows users in various teams across an organization to access, archive, and retrieve information at a faster pace, without having to spend significant money on 3D modeling tool licenses.
Compare CAD Files

The ability to visually compare 2D drawing files is helpful to quickly identify the changes in CAD drawing revisions or versions. Comparing 2D files helps you save lots of time and enables faster collaboration. A typical 2D drawing is revised many number of times during the course of a design cycle and many a times even during subsequent batch or lot manufacturing.

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
View CATPart and CATProduct files with Glovius. Open CATPart and CATProduct files to measure, analyze, section, and compare. Convert CATPart and CATProduct files to STEP, IGES, PDF, and STL.
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.
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.
