“It is a game changer. Drawing Validator dramatically reduces the lead time and increases the efficiency in our 2D drawing check process, especially when working on a large assembly models as it detects differences on the number of elements, values of dimensions and annotations based on parametric values in Creo Parametric native data. Our conventional method with an image comparison tool—check for differences by overlaying two drawings—always required manual filtering and examination by human eyes as the comparison result contained redundant differences such as slight change on the layout position of detail drawings, and such differences was reported as a difference on the whole detail drawing which was hard to understand what had been changed and judge whether important or not. In the scene where the detection of unintended changes is also integral, it is fundamental that only, but all the significant differences are detected. We see a great potential in this new product that this will enhance not limited to the 2D drawing validation process, but across the entire manufacturing process.”
