MARLBOROUGH, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 12, 2012 — Kubotek USA, pioneers of direct modeling and developers of industry leading geometric comparison technology, has published a new white paper which stresses the benefits of modern, automated approaches of comparing design change CAD model information. The white paper contrasts traditional methods of identifying product design changes, highlighting the challenges users face in comparison to consistent, computerized methods.
Kubotek's unique geometry differencing engine is widely recognized to be the most accurate and reliable CAD comparison technology available. That technology helped to produce a new generation of CAD Comparison tools to help users quickly and accurately identify and communicate any changes in design files.
“Product design methods might have improved greatly in the last two decades, but little has been done to improve the way engineering change orders are implemented,” says Jim Gordon, Vice President of Development for Kubotek USA. “Engineers or technicians typically overlay the old and the new parts and look for differences between them. This process is time-consuming and often has to be repeated several times throughout manufacturing and quality control. The most worrisome part is the potential for missing changes which could result in making bad parts or could even cause a recall.”
