Tool compares up to four different CAD models

Nov. 9, 2006
The CADIQ 4.6 product-data quality and 3D-model-comparison analyzer identifies and highlights potential shape-and-fit geometry and topology problems.

Such problems may affect their reuse in simulation, data exchange, rapid prototyping, and tooling. Users can compare up to four different models to validate CAD system migration and remastering of legacy data. The tool features a STEP Validation Properties Module, improved performance in analyzing large models, and Excel-based statistical analysis and comparison.
