Proprietary face-to-face geometric comparison algorithm.
This is Boeings quality system requirement for Aerospace suppliers with sections that require translated CAD data to be validated for quality system compliance.
The ability to compare the assembly tree for referenced assemblies. Requires both non-geometric and geometric comparison.
When the software that is receiving a solid model of the design data can not output a solid model(some metrology software's) the translation of the authority data is validated by outputting a point cloud that represents the measured points on the data. This point data is compared to the authority solid and surface data to perform the validation.
Authority and derivative files can be batch processed for validation.
When the derivative data is in a different orientation than the authority data(this can happen for a number of reasons and is based on the specific application and use of the derivative data), the derivative can be oriented to the authority data before validation.
When the authority or derivative files have extra data that is inconsequential to validation, a selective compare can be accomplished by choosing the data from each file for comparison.
Mass Properties calculates the volume, center of mass, moments of inertia, etc. of bodies and assemblies.
Extract level, color, entity type and other information from an entity aiding in the geometry identification, editing and management process. Useful for imported, non-native geometry identification and handling.
Calculate the area and centroid of a closed chain of curves or edges.
Measure distance between two positions, curves, or faces, or minimum and maximum distances between entities
Calculates the distance deviations between various type of entities.
Yields the entity count and types of entities contained in a given file. Useful for imported, non-native geometry identification and handling.
Performs a draft angle or mold extraction analysis on a model based on a defined draw direction.
Record comparison results as certified, tamper-proof documents.
Quality documents include built-in features that provide traceability back to the original validation to meet audit requirements.
Images of differences can be included in the output quality document.
Errors found as a result of comparison and validation can be dispositioned and documented in the output quality document.
