Model to Model Validation, Analysis of Inspection Data to Master Model
WESTMINSTER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 2, 2012 — TransMagic, Inc., leading developer of 3D CAD data exchange and validation software, announces the release of MagicCheck, a new product for comparison of 3D geometric data including: validation of translated models, analysis of quality inspection results and review of design changes. TransMagic MagicCheck quickly opens files in any major 3D CAD or point data format and compares the geometry against the authority CAD model. MagicCheck meets industry standards for geometric analysis and comprehensive report generation.
MagicCheck is built on the renowned TransMagic multi-CAD foundation which provides the ability to accurately read native 3D CAD formats, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, NX/UG, SolidWorks, Inventor and AutoCAD, while also supporting common non-native formats, Parasolid, ACIS, IGES, STEP, STL and JT. Point data sets can be imported from a variety of CAD formats plus Excel or CSV files.
Key Areas of Functionality in MagicCheck:
- Point-to-Part comparison analysis of CMM data to master model
- Part-to-Part validation of 3D models in any major CAD format
- Revision Control comparison of multiple part files to show changes
- Validation analysis reports document compliance with industry standards
“Since not everyone works in the same CAD design tools, sooner or later, you’re going to need to generate and validate derivative data sets during the manufacturing process,” states Larry Kuehn, inspection industry veteran with Adaptive Corp. “The supply chain quality department is not the only group that requires translated models be validated against the native engineering master model. The OEM or supplier manufacturing the part cannot afford to machine non-conforming parts because of translation errors. These manufacturing issues can typically cause expensive rework and scheduling delays. When engineering designs change, other departments need to quickly validate the changes to the model so their manufacturing and quality processes can be updated. MagicCheck is a powerful tool to help companies keep track of quality from design changes through to the finished parts.”
TransMagic MagicCheck overcomes the challenge of validating geometric data from multiple sources and will confirm with high accuracy that two CAD models are identical or different. MagicCheck compares quality inspection CMM data to the master model. Open multiple revisions of a part, simultaneously, in MagicCheck to show the changes at each stage. A thorough analysis of the geometric comparison is displayed graphically in a color map on the part. The color map shows all deviations, based on specified tolerances, while the point browser lists the actual numeric values. Generating detailed validation reports is simple with MagicCheck. Custom views and notations are easily added to produce a complete report of the analysis results in Excel or HTML.
