Identify quality and shape changes introduced while translating a CAD model from a supplier or partner's design system into your design system. The translation method can be BREP translation, feature translation or manual remastering. When using neutral file exchange (IGES, STEP, Parasolid), identify if any changes are introduced during export or import. After manually remastering a model, compare design revisions to identify shape changes to guide manual updating of the remastered model (to avoid divergence). Compare translation methods to identify the best options.
Ensure Top CAD Model Quality with CADIQ's Advanced Validation Solutions
CAD (Computer-Aided Design) models are an essential component of the product development lifecycle in many industries. However, the quality of CAD models can vary greatly, and errors or interoperability issues can cause significant downstream problems. To ensure top-quality CAD models, companies can turn to ITIs advanced validation solution : CADIQ
ITIis a leading provider of CAD validation solutions that combine expertise in interoperability improvement consulting with innovative validation technology. By using CADIQ, customers can identify and manage problems stemming from design quality and product data interoperability issues. This helps to improve downstream product data re-use, resulting in faster time-to-market and higher-quality products.
ITI has been involved in developing software solutions and consulting methodologies based on real customer challenges for over 20 years. This experience has given them a deep understanding of the requirements of each customer's unique needs, and they are well-positioned to deliver tailored solutions.
One of the key features of CADIQ's validation solutions is their ability to identify issues with CAD models before they cause downstream problems. This includes checking for geometry errors, data inconsistencies, and other issues that can cause interoperability problems with other software or systems. By catching these issues early, companies can avoid costly rework and delays.
CADIQ's validation solutions are also highly configurable, allowing customers to tailor them to their specific needs. This includes the ability to create custom rules and checks based on internal standards or industry-specific requirements. Additionally, CADIQ's solutions integrate with a wide range of CAD systems, making it easy for customers to incorporate them into their existing workflows.
CADIQ's validation solutions are used by companies in a wide range of industries, including aerospace and automotive,. These industries have some of the most stringent requirements for CAD model quality and interoperability, and CADIQ's solutions have proven to be effective in meeting these requirements.
- Identify bad geometry that impedes re-use of models in analysis and manufacturing processes
- Identify unrealistic modeling features requiring changes during CAE/CAM model re-use and divergence between the master product model and downstream CAx models
- Highlight unacceptable changes introduced during translation, migration, archiving or manual re-mastering
- Highlight undocumented changes arising between design revisions or for engineering change orders
- Find changes caused by complex parametric relationships unknown to CAD users
- Find changes to assembly product structure models that were not anticipated
ITI's advanced validation solutions are an essential tool for companies looking to ensure top-quality CAD models. By combining expertise in interoperability improvement consulting with innovative validation technology, CADIQ helps customers identify and manage problems stemming from design quality and product data interoperability issues. With over 20 years of experience developing software solutions and consulting methodologies based on real customer challenges, CADIQ is well-positioned to deliver tailored solutions for each customer's unique needs.
Identify quality and shape changes between revisions of a design model. Verify that any previous quality defects have been resolved. Verify that all required changes were made as specified and that no unintentional changes were introduced. Use this to verify that the change documentation is complete and accurate. Complement the documentation with static and/or dynamic 3D graphics which highlight and quantify the changes.
Identify quality defects in the design model that impede reuse for simulation modeling. Identify the design features that cause each defect to help the designer effectively remove it. Identify shape changes between the design and simulation models to verify that they are acceptable within simulation objectives.
Identify quality defects in the design model that impede reuse for manufacturing, e.g. tooling design. Identify the design features that cause each defect to help the designer effectively remove it. Identify shape changes between the design and manufacturing models to verify that they are acceptable within manufacturing requirements.
Identify quality defects in the design model that impede downstream use of the model. Verify that any derived forms of the design model (IGES, STEP, CAD translations...) are equivalent in quality and shape to the master model. When using STEP, add validation properties to the STEP model which can be used by the recipient to validate that a translated (imported STEP) CAD model is equivalent to the master model.
Identify derivative difference introduced while upgrading a model to a different version of a same CAD system.
Identify quality and shape changes introduced while migrating a CAD model from a legacy system into your current design system. The migration method can be BREP translation, feature translation or manual remastering. When using neutral file exchange (IGES, STEP, Parasolid), identify if any changes are introduced during export or import. Compare migration methods to identify the best options.
