Digital MockUp Viewing Tool Offers Ability To Measure & Analyze
Open Cascade, a software development company, which is primarily focused on the digital transformation of industries through the use of 3D technologies, has reinvented the way large-scale 3D models can be reviewed with the launch of its new software product – DMU Reviewer.
Digital MockUp – DMU Reviewer is a unique viewing tool allowing both professionals and users with no or little CAD experience to collaborate on massive 3D data with the ability to measure, analyze, comment and share data with other team members. Whether you design a new product, manage manufacturing processes, maintain an industrial facility, prepare technical documentation, or perform quality control having advanced 3D visualization software at hand is crucial.
DMU Reviewer is a lightweight and affordable, yet powerful one-stop-shop solution which provides extended functionality for quick Digital MockUp (DMU) review to engineering and other involved departments. This in many cases eliminates the necessity of heavy and expensive original CAD systems or software integration with PLM systems. Moreover, making design information accessible to all stakeholders improves communication between groups what results in faster decision making. The solution drastically streamlines and optimizes the production workflow, by enabling error detection at the early stages of the project, and therefore reduces the number of production defects and speeds up time to market.
The software is available on Windows desktop computers and tablets with the ability to process, explore and analyze scenes of any scale in field using a mobile device.The intuitive interface of DMU Reviewer heavily democratizes the 3D reviewing process.
A robust feature set of DMU Reviewer can be conditionally divided into three groups: design review, selection and navigation, data exchange.
Measurement and Dimensioning
Be it a model provided by a supplier or an own designed, it is essential to verify it for the specifications compliance before the production start. In many cases even little discrepancies in measurements might cause failures during assemblies and therefore lead to production defects. Use DMU Reviewer to accurately measure b-rep geometry in advance (angles, distances, lengths and radii measurements are available) as well as to perform measurements on mesh and to review dimension indications saved with the model. All values are rapidly calculated and displayed in accordance with international standard ISO 1101:2012 right in the working area.
Very often engineers need to see the interior of complex parts or assemblies to check them for correctness and specifications compliance. Take advantage of Clipping Planes feature available in DMU Reviewer to explore the whole interior by sliding the clipping plane along different axes. Applying clipping planes does not make changes to a loaded scene or model, no parts or assemblies are removed: it only imitates the movement along the model with the possibility to observe the cross section and reveal the interior and the structure of the model’s mass.
Applying sections can remove a part of a scene or environment from consideration if they are not important for further processing and exploring, and therefore, save processing power.
