Model Compare

All,

On wf4....

Have 2 models. One original, other modified proposed changes from
vendor.

We use minimum dimmed drawings.

I heard tell of a way to compare the 2 models.

Can someone please share?

Is this easy or cumbersome?

Kind of complicated casting.

Oh....one possible curve....the vendor sent back STEP files. I assume
this "compare" works only with native Pro/E files? We are attempting to
have the native files sent....but they may not give up...have to see,
but would like to know if the statement is true.

Kind of cumbersome. I put both parts into a temporary assembly right on top of each other - Make one red the other green and move them before or after each other in the model tree. The differences then become very apparent.

It’s under analysis -> compare part. By Feature compares to Proe parts, feature by feature, and tells you what’s different. By Geometry is a little more opaque, it is supposed to highlight areas of difference I think. Been a while since I tried it, it may take some experimentation to get decent results.

In Creo 2.0, the compare by geometry is not very good. We’ve tried it a couple of times with users complaining about the results every time.

Thanks Doug!!!

Thanks for the feedback & honesty Mike. LOL. I shall see what I can do.

I have done this poor mans effort many times. In shaded mode you will get a quick idea of the differences (external) when one color hides another and vice versa on the colors, but also when you get the "zebra striping" of the two colors you will know surfaces are co-planer. In addition if you query select the parts over and over again it will basically toggle between the two parts and you can start seeing differences in line location between the two parts especially on internal features. Once you see visually the locations of differences you can take a closer look by measuring.

Good luck,

I hear ya Mike - that may end up being my route?
I am waiting to hear back about getting the native Pro/E.
Is is true that it must be native to native for comparison? Makes sense
that it would.


Model Compare

For a feature based comparison, yes. Not for ‘by geometry’ or if you’re simply overlaying models.

Does not sound good. I am waiting to see if i can get the native file.
thanks Doug.
