CAD Collaboration with Glovius

We recently announced our CAD collaboration initiative – Glovius Cloud. Now, with the latest product update to Glovius desktop app, you can add and view comments directly in the app. This enables a true multi platform CAD collaboration solution for Glovius users.

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. This leads to severe lack of trace-ability, loss of information and repetition. Glovius CAD collaboration is designed to be a multi platform tool that serves as the basis for all discussions on 3D parts and assemblies.

Glovius Cloud is a web based  tool built on multiple platforms for contextual collaboration. Use the Glovius desktop, Mobile apps or the Web app to View and add comments. Converse with your designers, engineers and everyone else with the 3D design file as the source of truth. This ensure you spend less time on email and more time designing and manufacturing great products.

You can extend this collaboration tool to your suppliers and manufacturers. As the conversations are file based, you can share a specific file in the project to such external stakeholders with a single click.

Finally using our web and mobile apps, the entire team will always have access to the 3D part and assemblies. You can take simple measurements, take sections and download reports.

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.

For most of our Glovius users, the Measure tool is the most prominent and critical function used for their workflow. We listened to our users on ways to improve and make Measurement more effective for them. With this in mind, we have revamped the Measure tool in the latest release .

Measure Catia, ProE, NX, SolidEdge, SolidWorks, Inventor, STEP and IGES parts and assemblies

Measure your CAD parts and assemblies

You will notice that now all the Measure tool options are cleanly laid out in a dedicated tab. The layout has been designed based on all the options that you would need to measure. You not only have highlighted the standard measurement tools like the distance or the angle between edges, but also tools to measure specific entities like the angle between two hole axes or the radius of a circle passing through three points.

All the Measure tools have been grouped as per their type, namely :

  1. Point : Measure the coordinates of a point
  2. Length : Measure the length of an edge. Calculate the total length of edges using Tape tool
  3. Linear : Measure the linear distance between two entities. Choose points, edges, or circles and combination between them to measure the distance
  4. Radial : Calculate the radius or a diameter of a circle. Calculate the radius of a circle passing through three points
  5. Angular : Measure the angle between edges, faces and axes
  6. Area : Measure the area of a surface

The new tools compliment our existing feature set in Measure. Download Glovius and give it a try.

And for all of us in the business of manufacturing and making things, here’s the take – “What can’t be measured, can’t be engineered”.

Introducing Glovius Cloud

We are please to introduce Glovius Cloud – a new way to share your CAD parts and assemblies with your colleagues and suppliers.

Access your 3D parts and assemblies on Windows, Mobile and Web

As we see increasing adoption of cloud and mobile technologies, the inevitable spillover of work and the need to access your design data on such devices is becoming one of the top priorities to organizations of every size. Glovius Cloud is built up our time tested mobile and web technologies that we’d piloted and deployed in enterprises to address various use cases of Visualizing 3D data on such devices.

Glovius Cloud is built to address the following use cases :

  1. View your CAD parts and assemblies on any device using native mobile apps for iOS and Android and Web apps for modern browsers.
  2. Share URL’s instead of emailing 3D parts and assemblies
  3. Add review comments and get feedback from your colleagues/suppliers who don’t have access to the CAD application or Glovius Windows Viewer.

All Glovius customers with valid USP and subscription will receive a CloudPass to the mobile and web app for free ( lookout for the mail about creating an account for cloud.glovius.com ). We will also be launching a Glovius Cloud plan exclusively for those users who need access to 3D data on their phones or browsers only.

Register for Glovius Cloud and with a single click start pushing your files to the mobile and web apps.

Product Manager.

Glovius – A Modern CAD Viewer – CIMdata Commentary

Read the full CIMdata Commentary here or download the full commentary.

Key takeaways:

– A successful CAD collaboration visualization solution must be cost effective, easy to use, and platform independent.
– 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 directly imports CAD and standard CAD formats without needing a license to any CAD solution.

Collaborative visualization holds the promise of transforming product development — reducing time to market, improving product quality, and enhancing product capabilities to best satisfy customer and market needs. Initial entry into collaborative visualization begins with the ability to leverage design engineering’s virtual CAD models and share them with downstream technical and business organizations, the supply chain, and customers. An effective collaboration visualization solution, however, requires extensive capabilities beyond just viewing.

The collaborative visualization solution, Glovius from HCL Technologies, offers CAD independent viewing and data access. Aptly called a “Modern CAD Viewer” because of its ability to run on an extensive range of platforms including tablets and smart phones, Glovius offers capabilities such as dimensioning, sectioning, markup, 3D compare, and analysis tools to all levels of users. CIMdata recognizes Glovius as a major player in the collaborative visualization market.

Glovius CIMdata commentary

Glovius delivers a strong collaborative visualization choice for users looking to improve their data sharing experience during product development. HCL Technologies has positioned it well against the three major business challenges of being cost effective, easy to use, and platform independent. The result places Glovius in the forefront of effective solutions for collaboration visualization. CIMdata recommends that users looking to improve their downstream and supply chain interaction take a look at Glovius as a possible vehicle to drive those improvements.
