MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 28, 2010 — As part of the newly released Validation Tool 9.0, Kubotek USA is now officially offering the Validation Tool ECO product. Validation Tool ECO offers exciting new functionality for the automated creation of comprehensive engineering change order (ECO) reports. The addition of the ECO reporting allows users to simply and quickly document all changes to 3D models including product manufacturing information (PMI) with a Microsoft® PowerPoint® report.
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 ECO builds on its powerful model comparison engine, and directly addresses the challenges of communicating design revisions. The Validation Tool ECO product gives users extremely flexible reporting capabilities that can quickly document known, undetected or inaccurately communicated design changes.
Bob Bean, Executive Vice President, Kubotek USA, states, “Managing change to 3D models is very challenging because the 3D Model Based Definition (MBD) process does not contain dimensions, views or sections. Internal changes and external changes, like those that occur in the supply chain, can go undetected causing errors and delays.” He continues, “Kubotek is the only supplier of this technology that uses a true geometric kernel for geometric comparison with feature discovery to detect and document changes to 3D designs. What this means to the customer is fast, accurate and complete detection and documentation of any and all changes.”
All companies that perform design reviews or who must resubmit job bids based on design revisions will see immediate business advantages to using Validation Tool ECO. By eliminating costly manufacturing errors before they occur, and by more accurately re-quoting actual changes to the 3D model, businesses can confidently move design revisions in production and increase revenue.
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. Kubotek developed its superior 3D technology and introduced Validation Tool™ for precise CAD model comparison allowing is customers to easily manage change. Validation Tool builds on advanced 3D geometry-based technology to provide unmatched accuracy and reliability to ensure 3D design data is accurate for both immediate manufacturing use and archiving. Kubotek Validation Tool is the first model validation software to be included in an FAA certified 3D MBD validation process.
