View and Compare CATDrawing files

The ability to visually compare 2D drawing files is helpful to quickly identify the changes in CAD drawing revisions or versions.

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 manufacturing. No matter how small or big the change is, it usually takes lot of time to study these changes. A visual highlighter that identifying these changes significantly reduces the time taken to assimilate and continue with the next step of the design cycle.

With the aim to enable fast CAD drawing comparison, we now have Compare tool in Glovius 2D Viewer as well. Glovius 2D compare helps you to identify the following changes :

  1. Any addition, deletion and modification of views
  2. Any changes in the geometry of the model
  3. Any changes in PMI information like balloons, datum planes, measurement values etc
compare 2D, compare 2d drawings

Compare any two CATDrawing files

All you need to do is Start Glovius 2D app, click on the Compare tool, browse to the drawing versions and hit Compare to visualize the differences between the two revisions of the 2D drawing file.

Download Glovius today and try the all new Glovius 2D Compare tool. The tool currently supports comparison of Catia drawing ( .CATDrawing ) files with support for other formats coming shortly.

Introducing Glovius PLUS – Export CAD to STEP

We are excited to announce a new plan – Glovius PLUS.

STEP files have become the defacto standard in CAD data exchange. With the Glovius PLUS plan you can now export your CAD parts and assemblies to standard data exchange formats. You can also export to IGES, Parasolid and 3MF formats. 3MF is a universal specification for 3D Printing industry and supported by a variety of founding companies like Microsoft, Autodesk, Dassault Systems, PTC and Siemens.

Glovius also supports a variety of STEP application protocols like STEP AP 242 which is useful for MBE ( Model base engineering ) scenarios . Export your CATIA, Solidworks, Creo, NX and other CAD file formats to STEP and share it with your team and suppliers.

Drop us a mail at support@glovius.com to try out the Glovius PLUS plan.

CAD Collision Detection Tools

With the latest release, we have launched Collision detection tools in Glovius. The ability to check for collision in an assembly is mainly useful for two reasons :

  1. Check for CAD assembly integrity : Quickly analyze whether the various components in the assembly have been assembled properly. With a single tool analyze the spatial arrangement of component parts and sub-assemblies in an assembly. Check if the assembled position of the component has intersections that compromise the overall integrity of the assembly.
  2. Verify CAD assemblies  : Detect and verify if components maintain the recommended clearance values. This is especially useful during system integration checks.
Check collision, clearance analysis, contact information, interference check, clearance check

Perform Collision, Contact and Clearance Analysis in CAD assemblies

Glovius provides you the ability to check the Collision, Clearance and the Contact information of the assembly constituents. You can either calculate the collision among all the constituents or select two components and analyze their relative positions in the assembly.

Download Glovius today and analyze your CAD assemblies faster.
