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.

CAD Collaboration with Glovius – Video

We talked about CAD collaboration using Glovius in our earlier posts. Many Glovius are using this functionality to reviews their designs, showcase and share them. The main advantages of using this underlying Glovius cloud service is

  1. Multi platform access – Support on Windows, iOS, Android and Web
  2. Access designs – View, Analyze, and Generate reports
  3. Collaborate – Share URL’s and 3D design data instead of working on images or using FTP’s

Watch this video for an overview, register for an account and start using the Glovius cloud service for collaboration.

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”.
