Kubotek USA has released Kubotek Comparison Suite 2014 version 12.5. Comparison Suite products include Validation Tool and ECO Manager. The engineering change identification and documentation tools found in the Kubotek Comparison Suite help users avoid undetected or undocumented changes in CAD files.
The new version adds several new capabilities, updated translators, and user-driven improvements to save time and improve user control, including CATIA V5 version-to-version compare; the added ability to enter disposition text next to related geometry in validation quality documents; updated CAD interoperability readers for Inventor 2014 and Parasolid R26; CATIA V5 import that now reads hidden assembly instances; user control options for locating closed sets of curves; and Geometry ToolTips to identify entity locations for all entities and entity components.
“Our Comparison Suite products help design and quality teams confidently compare two CAD models, regardless of file type, to find differences in product geometry, model based definition (MBD) or product manufacturing information (PMI),” said Tony Anderson, vice president and general manager of Comparison Suite Products. “Our products give users an automated way to document and communicate any revisions as products work their way through the manufacturing process.”
