International TechneGroup Incorporated (ITI) has released CADIQ 9.1, the latest version of its CAD model validation application. This version includes updates for STEP model validation and PMI quality checking.
According to a press release, the latest release of CADIQ includes performance improvements for large and complex STEP files. CADIQ also supports STEP validation properties, such as the ability to evaluate mass properties and generate face sampling points on the native model, and append these to the STEP file.
Additionally, CADIQ 9.1 now comes with PMI modules which add diagnostics to the CADIQ analyzer, enabling PMI quality checking and comparison at both the part and assembly level.
“By natively comparing geometry, design features and PMI to identify significant differences, CADIQ offers more robust validation than any other solution on the market. This is why ITI has been selected by consortia and industry standards groups, including the 3DPDF Consortium, PDES, Inc., and LOTAR, as their validation partner,” said Don Hemmelgarn, ITI’s Senior Executive VP of CAD/CAM/CAE Interoperability.
