Product Overview

xCompare V5 / SMG verifies the conversion process from CATIA V5 in SMG (3DVIA Composer), which is very important for downstream process and the long term data archival. Various criteria of a CATIA V5 model are compared to a SMG model. In order to perform this comparison, xCompare uses directly the models to analyse the features as well as the geometry without converting them first into a internal format. Hence, a ensured and reliable verification is guranteed. xCompare V5 / SMG is fully integrated in CATIA.

Customer Benefits

Saving time with comparing models
The model comparison can either be performed in CATIA or in batch mode in order to avoid doing it manually. 

Increase reliability
A manual verification implies the risk of human errors, since changes can be missed in complex models. xCompare ensures that all modifications are found.

Fulfill legal or company requirements regarding documentation
For data conversion and long term data archival, legal or company internal regulations might require that the generated or archived model data are consistent with the original data of the CAD system. xCompare V5 / JT and V5 / SMG ensure this verification.
