Compare 3D CAD files

Design is an iterative process. As the design of a component is fine-tuned, some features are added, altered or completely removed. This leads to successive iterations of 3D files with differences that are difficult to communicate with the extended team, especially since the changes are iterative with very minor visual modifications.

Using Glovius, you can compare any two 3D models to find out the differences. Use the Compare feature to visually see the changes in any two versions of a 3D component. You can compare 3D part and assembly files from various formats such as Siemens NX, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Pro/ENGINEER & Creo, CATIA V5, STEP, IGES and many more.

The example above highlights the differences between two versions of an assembly. The result is shown with the unchanged (translucent), added (shown in green) and removed (shown in red) information. You can also save a report of the changes or compare attribute information and assembly structure that is different within these files.

The 3D Compare feature is available with the Pro Plan ($39/month, free 7-day trial). Compare feature is also included in Glovius CAD Viewer bundles for CATIA V4/V5NXPro/ENGINEERSolidWorksSTEP/IGES.

Glovius 3.4 for Windows is here!

Posted by with 0 Comments in Windows Read More →

We are really excited to announce Glovius v3.4 for Windows. This release adds powerful new features like Compare Models, Export BOM and Add/Edit/Delete Attributes. In addition, we have made improvements in measurement, performance, user interface and export to glovius mobile format.

Compare Models

Compare any two models, and visualize differences in Glovius. Both parts and assemblies are supported. Model comparison is based on tessellation, attributes, and assembly structure. The graphics area displays added and removed material between the two models. Unchanged material is displayed in a translucent manner to provide additional context.

Other Highlights

  1. Measurements are now faster and look better, thanks to filled arrows and improved line thickness. Measuring section profiles is now possible. Measurement placement has also been improved.
  2. Files will open faster with significant performance improvement during rotation.
  3. Progress bar is more dependable.
  4. There is an all new add-on manager interface.
  5. Exporting to Glovius Mobile is now faster and creates more compact glovius files, resulting in improved performance on Glovius iOS & Android apps.
