MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 8, 2010 — Kubotek USA has officially released Validation Tool™ Version 9. Kubotek’s Validation Tool is a 3D model validation software that uses unique mathematical algorithms to compare CAD files significantly faster and more precisely than other similar comparison software on the market. Validation Tool 9.0 adds multiple enhancements to its robust performance features, including file format and annotation readers, assembly file comparison and management and added reporting capabilities. In addition, brand new functionality allows for the automated creation of comprehensive change order reports in Microsoft® PowerPoint® format.
Validation Tool 9.0 adds the optional ability to read product manufacturing information (PMI), including Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) and other annotations from popular CAD programs. The addition of two popular file format readers, including JT™, gives users the ability to validate additional sets of 3D data that are commonly used. These enhancements further Kubotek’s commitment to provide more comprehensive design comparisons and validation in a CAD neutral environment.
Says Bob Bean, Executive Vice President, Kubotek USA, “Kubotek has been hard at work developing new features in direct response to customer requests. Validation Tool now handles very large files and assemblies quickly thanks to a new “caching capability,” multi-threading and multi-core support. In addition, changes to PMI are detected and reported so all information including geometry and detailing in MBD (Model Based Definition) files can be validated and managed.”
Enhanced reporting attributes and assembly comparison improvements, including the addition of some brand new functionality, expand the options in which users can compare assemblies to locate or verify differences within the data sets. Additionally, larger files and more complex assemblies can be compared, giving users complete control over their validation criteria and reporting. As a direct result of Validation Tool 9.0 technology enhancements, undetected translation changes and design revisions can be caught before costly manufacturing errors occur.
The Kubotek Corporation Creation Engineering Division is the leading pioneer in 3D geometry-based engineering software. Kubotek has been focused on solving Multi-CAD interoperability problems for its customers since 2002.
