Capvidia at SolidWorks World 2014January 26-29, 2014, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, CA

Join us at SolidWorks World 2014, Booth # 624, as we launch CompareWorks and showcase our extended MBD (Model Based Definition) support for SolidWorks.

MBDVidia – Most extensive MBD viewer for all CAD formats not requiring an expensive CAD seat.
Unlock your valuable CAD data, and make it available for re-use.  MBDVidia is a powerful yet easy to use 3D MBD viewer/analyzer supporting native CAD data created in CATIA, UG/NX, Pro/E, or STEP AP 242 including Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) and providing the same level of detail and accuracy as in the native CAD system.
Key features:

  • Automatic generation of optimal drafting views
  • Resolves “spaghetti” like PMI
  • Automatic PMI ballooning with bill of characteristics
  • Automatic generation of reports (pdf, html, xml)

CompareWorks – MBD Compliant Validation for SolidWorks Models
CompareWorks validates that models imported into or exported from SolidWorks do not have geometry deviation from the original CAD models. CompareWorks extends SolidWorks capabilities to comply with MBD/MBE processes where ensuring data integrity is a must. An automatically generated validation report is available for inclusion into the TDP.

PDQWorks – MIL STD 31000 Data Quality Verification
PDQWorks verifies that models created in SolidWorks will satisfy the quality requirements defined by MIL STD 31000 A (Appendix C) and other standards such as: VDA 4955, AIAG D-15, GALIA, ODETTE, JAMA. An automatically generated validation report is available for attachment to your TDP.

FormatWorks 2014 – Import 3D MBD
FormatWorks 2014 reads complete MBD (Model Based Definition) from native CATIA V5, Siemens NX, Creo/Pro-E, and STEP AP 242 data formats. Full semantic links are maintained in SolidWorks for all PMI data such as GD&T, FT&A and annotations. The complete MBD definition can be stored in a native SolidWorks file format.
