Razorleaf Corp. Announces the Release of CADFIT File Inspection Tool

STOW, OH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 01, 2010 -- Razorleaf Corp. announces the release of CADFIT, a free utility that organizations using SolidWorks computer-aided design (CAD) software can use to discover problems with the integrity of their relational data. Once the tool is run and the raw data is uploaded to Razorleaf, a free summary report is generated and provided to customers as feedback on the quality of their surveyed data. Reports indicate missing child file references and duplicate file information. A more detailed report is available for an additional fee.

CADFIT offers engineers an easy way to assess the quality of their CAD data and to target repairs to their data set. Here's how it works: CADFIT gathers basic information about all the files in the target directories such as file type, size, creation date, last modification date, etc. Additional detailed information is extracted from SolidWorks file types, such as custom properties, the version of SolidWorks in use when the file was last saved, and most importantly, external file references.

The capabilities of CADFIT are particularly useful to those preparing for a PDM data load. By quantifying the scale of existing problems with the quality of CAD data, CADFIT can help justify the need for, and use of, better CAD data management processes and tools.

"What an eye opener," said James Perron, systems administrator at OYSTAR Packaging Technologies. "CADFIT showed us how bad our networks really were. We had no idea of the thousands of duplicate and missing files in our system. We actually thought we were handling the data well. Employees make duplicate files and put them on hard drives, move files around on the network. Without a tool like CADFIT, how would you know?"
