Advanced Measurement Add-on!

Posted by with - in Windows Read More →

Take accurate measurements on your CATIA, NX, Pro/ENGINEER, SolidWorks, STEP, IGES & JT files. Perform linear, angular and radial measurements, with filters and settings to help you do it quickly & accurately.

Select entities to measure distance, angle & radius between lines, points, surfaces & planes. For points, single entity selection displays XYZ coordinates, and displays the distance when two points are selected. For edges, measure the length/diameter and the distance/angle between two edges. Similar linear/angular measurements can be performed when two faces are selected.

measure.toolbarMeasurement is precise for CAD formats containing BREP data. Measurement units are model units, but can be changed from the Settings tab. Measurements performed using the Advanced Measurement Add-on are not saved in the file. Perform ad-hoc measurements on models when dimensions are absent. Send your measurement snapshots, right from within the Glovius app, by clicking the Email tool on the ribbon bar.

Enter the measurement mode by selecting the “tape measure” icon from the ribbon toolbar on the top. In the measure mode, as you hover over entities, they are highlighted for easy picking. The highlight & measurement colors, as well as other settings can be configured through the settings menu.


After selecting an entity (a point, an edge or a face), click to place the measurement on the screen. You may continue your selection for measuring two entities. Hit the ESC key to deselect the last entity from measurement queue. The “Clear All” button flushes all the measurements taken and lets you begin afresh. Delete measurements by selecting them with mouse and hitting the DELETE key.

Click here to register and download the add-on. A free 7 day trial is available. To configure, simply download and install the add-on. The measurement add-on works with Glovius 32-bit and 64-bit viewers.

The Advanced Measurement add-on is available for $99 as a standalone license. Visit the online store to buy a copy. It is included in all subscriptions plans: Basic, Standard & Pro subscription plans. Click here to compare plans and subscribe. Plans start from $19/month.

Glovius version 2.0 for Windows is now available!

Posted by with - in Windows Read More →

We are very pleased to announce the latest release of Glovius. Glovius for Windows release 2.0 is now available for download. The new release incorporates various new features and bug fixes.


Improvements in Importer Add-ons
All file formats supported using the Importer add-ons now support saving to the lightweight JT format. Glovius supports most of the popular cad formats, including SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER, STEP, IGES & NX. With Glovius 2.0, you will now be able to save your CAD format parts and assemblies to the lightweight JT format for further use.

Measurement Improvements
Point snapping is now supported while doing measurement in the Glovius. The snapping and visual cues will help users to do simple point to point linear measurements quickly and accurately. Snapping support is available for all CAD formats, and for JT files with version 9.5. Support for lower versions of JT is coming soon.

Print Support
Print & print preview functionality is now available in Glovius. Click on the print icon to bring up the system print dialog. You can also preview the active document before printing your 3d model.

Automatic trial license configuration
With Glovius 2.0, it is now even easier to try and evaluate the many add-ons available on Glovius. Simply download and install an add-on. Next time Glovius is launched, the add-on is configured for trial. It is as easy as that.

A new user interface
Glovius 2.0 sports a much cleaner Office 2010 like ribbon interface. All the commands are clearly visible and there are no context menus or hidden items for you. The Office 2010 like ribbon, makes Glovius familiar for most of the users.
