3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate VALIDATE
Validate CAD Model
Translations Directly in Verisurf
Features Overview

KEY BENEFITS

Verisurf VALIDATE is for aerospace part suppliers with DPD/MBD process requirements. It provides precise CAD model translation validation by comparing the authority CAD model to the translated CAD model, enabling manufacturers to quickly identify any translation error. Verisurf VALIDATE helps reduce scrap and rework from bad CAD translations and complies with Boeing D6-51991 “Quality Assurance Standard for Digital Product Definition”.

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate
Translates all major file formats and meets all aerospace industry CAD data validation and documentation requirements.
3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate
Pattern matching comparison method provides objective evidence validating the translation process.
3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate
Powered by independent, CAD-neutral 3D framework with multi-threaded architecture that delivers unmatched speed and performance.

KUBOTEK KOSMOS VALIDATE Standard
Includes the following functions.

Advanced Geometric Comparison

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

Face-to-face geometric pattern matching analyzes the whole part definition within the user controlled tolerance. This strategy reliably finds the differences across all precise CAD models without the common failures and false positives of the Boolean approach, or missed areas inherent with the sampling of points approach.

Boeing D6-51991 Compliance

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

Boeings quality system requirement for Aerospace suppliers with sections that require translated CAD data to be validated for quality system compliance.

Distance Measurements

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

Measure the distance between entities, points, and positions and angles between two edges or faces, or 4 positions.

Assembly
Comparison

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

A special mode for two sets of hierarchical CAD assembly files scans file names and headers and lists side-by-side results. Users can optionally geometrically compare a selected set of parts or launch processes to compare all parts. Quick side-by-side 3D graphical viewing is available to see differences in impacted parts.

Selective
Comparison

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

When the authority or derivative files have extra data that is inconsequential to validation, a selective compare can be accomplished by choosing the data from each file for comparison.

Re-Orientation of Derivative

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

When the derivative data is in a different orientation than the authority data (typically for manufacturing setups), the derivative can be automatically or manually oriented to match the authority data before comparison.

Non-Solid Derivative Files

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

When the software that is receiving a solid model of the design data can not output a solid model (some metrology software) the translation of the authority data is validated by outputting a point cloud that represents the measured points on the data. This point data is compared to the authority solid and surface data to perform the validation.

A similar approach is used to compare mesh data in STL derivative files to the precise authority data set (Premium level only).

Optional Network
License

3D Metrology Software, Training and CMMsValidate

Benefits of network floating licenses:

  • Access software from multiple devices and locations.
  • Unlimited number of users.
  • More flexible and dynamic software usage.
  • Shared software can result in significant savings.

Example of two concurrent users of network floating licenses managed from network license server.
