Validation results as you need them

There are an assortment of ways to exploit the knowledge from a CADIQ validation process.

The validation results can be summarized in Excel spreadsheet with charts, text reports, internal company data formats or integrated directly within your PLM or Six Sigma system. The diagnostic graphics are captured for visualization in the CADIQ Viewer from which annotated side-by-side view differences can be saved into graphic image files.

Diagnostic results can also be marked up and stored as a series of custom views which contain the stored diagnostics, CAD model viewpoints, user notes and user configurations. These custom views are stored within the CADIQ file and can optionally be published to the CADIQ Adobe 3D PDF Report to allow non-CADIQ users access to important validation knowledge.
