Assistive Measure for Points

Points are the basic geometric entities in any 3D model and are used as a basis for measurement. To help you measure quickly and identify all points during measurement, Glovius will assist you by highlighting the nearby points for Measurement. As you move the cursor in the scene, you will be able to select the nearby points to the cursor and measure their ordinates or the distances from other points.

To use this feature, open a model, click on the Measure tool and select ‘Points’ only option from the from the Filter list. Now, Move your cursor towards geometry to show all the nearby points. You can select any of the points for use in measurement.

Watch this video for a brief overview of this function in Glovius :

Hatching Effect in Sectioning

We are pleased to announce a new enhancement to Glovius Section functionality. This enhancement improves the visual display of components during Sectioning by quickly segregating and identifying various components of the model. In case of an assembly, multiple hatching patterns are applied to distinguish the components for visual legibility.

Hatching Pattern in CAD Components

Hatching effect is turned on by default and you can turn it off by toggling the Hatching button in Glovius. Give this enhancement a spin and give us your feedback by reaching out to us at support@glovius.com

Here’s a short video explaining the feature :

Collaboration among teams and references to contextual 3D data is essential during the design life cycle of a component. To enable faster collaboration and providing contextual information, Glovius has an inbuilt 3D PDF report generator. Using this tool, you can generate a single, concise 3DPDF report containing the prominent information about the component. This 3D PDF report contains

  1. 3D Visualization data
  2. Attributes data
  3. BoM report with Part Number, Quantity, Bounding box dimensions and Component Image

To generate a 3D PDF report using Glovius, Open a file in Glovius, Click on the Export tab and Click on 3D Report to generate this document. You can export files from all popular CAD formats including CATIA, NX, Inventor, Pro/ENGINEER, Creo, SolidWorks and many more.

Download a sample 3D PDF report file and open it in Adobe PDF reader to view the report.

3DPDF reports

Export your CATIA, NX, ProE/Creo, SolidWorks and other popular CAD files to 3DPDF reports.

Here’s a short video about 3DPDF reports in Glovius.
