Mumbai, India , November 27, 2007 – Geometric Ltd., a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services and technologies, today announced the release of version 2.1 of GeomCaliper® for Pro/ENGINEER®, focusing on usability and performance enhancement related features.
The major enhancements in this release of GeomCaliper for Pro/ENGINEER include:
Improvements in User Interface
Enhanced Reporting: Reporting mechanism for thickness analysis results can capture multiple critical regions along with their static image snapshots in one report now.
Customizable color band: Color band displayed with thickness analysis results can now be customized to specify user defined intervals including range and color for each interval.
Contact Distance: In sphere method for thickness analysis, the user can opt to view contact distance between touch points rather than diameter of sphere.
Enhancements in Critical Region Analysis tool: Enhancements in critical region analysis tool include the ability to quickly locate critical regions outside of allowed thickness range, setting default options to view region or clipped section at pre-defined angles, turning animation on-off during critical region analysis, and defining or modifying parameters like status, color, review comments on multiple regions at same time.
Improvements in Performance
Computation time reduced by upto 30%
Significant improvement in visualization performance resulting in 150% improvement in FPS rate. Bigger and complex models are now processed much faster.
