While CADIQ has always promoted Native System Interfaces as the most robust approach for validation, not all scenarios allow access to native CAD systems. This is especially the case with smaller suppliers that must adhere to typical OEM partner mandates or quality specifications. These procedures often specify that converted forms of original CAD Master Models be properly validated to confirm that the original product design intent was not altered. To support these evolving scenarios, ITI TranscenData announces support for Native File Interfaces. This enables the CADIQ Analyzer to work with a mixture of either Native System Interfaces or Native File Interfaces. The validation and business requirements can now drive the type of solution that makes the most sense for customers. CADIQ can also be more simply packaged for customers that need to quickly validate and document standalone Native CAD files without needing the original CAD system.
