TransMagic announced 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. The system quickly opens files in any major 3D CAD or point data format and compares the geometry against the authority CAD model, the company says. MagicCheck also meets industry standards for geometric analysis and comprehensive reporting.
The solution is built on the TransMagic multi-CAD foundation, which provides the ability to read native 3D CAD formats, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER, NX/UG, SolidWorks, Inventor and AutoCAD, while also supporting common non-native formats such as Parasolid, ACIS, IGES, STEP, STL and JT. Point data sets can be imported from a variety of CAD formats plus Excel or CSV files.
The system overcomes the challenge of validating geometric data from multiple sources and will confirm that two CAD models are identical or different, the company says. MagicCheck compares quality inspection CMM data to the master model. Users can open multiple revisions of a part, simultaneously, 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.
