Inventor PlugIn for Geometry Comparison and Tolerance Influence Visualization

CAD Software Solutions released the PartCompare and ToleranceVisualize AddIn for Autodesk Inventor 2015, 2016 and 2017. The AddIn uses the LEDAS LGC technology and is the only solution to compare Solid-, Surface- and combined Solid/Surface geometries, which makes it absolutely unique. The Addins GUI provides a overview of differences in Volume, Mass, num. features and Faces, and the comparison result is graphically displayed within the Inventor graphics window of both compared models. The User is free to select the preferred display colors for both models and the original geometry can be switched on or off.

The AddIn registers automatically if the source models are designed in metric or inch units. And even both is possible: to compare metric and inch models whereby the User is free to define in which tolerance units the calculation shell be done. And this is another unique feature: the Geometry comparison taking into account a tolerance.

The use of tolerances within a 3D geometry is a great design feature but can lead quickly in undesirable side effects. With this feature the Designer keepscontrol over the model and its tolerance influence to the entire geometry. At the same time it grants a easy and quick overview to all assigned tolerances and displays graphically the locations of tolerances and where they might still are missing.

Both, the PartCompare and ToleranceVisualize AddIn, are highly efficient and useful tools for any designer. The Geometry Comparison and Tolerance Visualization are included in one single AddIn. For the start to market CAD Software Solution grants special offers until the end of the year, especially for company licenses. Get now your free of charge evaluation license here:
