MagicCheck R2

TransMagic, a developer of 3D multi-cad interoperability software, has announced the release of MagicCheck R2, a 3D geometric data comparison application.

MagicCheck R2 delivers new features including multi-body comparison, 3-point move positioning and dynamic dimensioning. MagicCheck's new assembly comparison and dimension features allow suppliers to find even the smallest model and assembly changes in new data sets.  This feature is intended to improve the accuracy of quoting based on 3D CAD data and allows users to easily document changes to downstream processes such as NC toolpaths and QA inspection plans.

The user experience has also been enhanced with optimised model import performance, multi-core processing technology and dockable browser panes.

The MagicCheck R2 feature enhancements allow users greater control over 3D CAD data for more accurate and detailed comparison results. Now users can manipulate the alignment of parts using the new 3-point Move function for precise analysis. The dynamic dimensioning is designed to help users create professional level dimensions on any 3D part or assembly, enabling users to produce more accurate quotes and share precise model query data amongst teams.

Built on the TransMagic multi-CAD foundation, MagicCheck R2 delivers an optimised user experience. Multi-core processing enables increased performance and faster model import speeds by allocating system processing across all available system cores instead of the standard process of using one core at a time. The new dockable browser panes and upgraded visualisation features allow users to customise their 3D model comparison environment to their requirements. Supporting numerous file formats, MagicCheck R2 includes updated file format support for CATIA, NX, Inventor and Parasolid.  New formats introduced in R2 include DWG/DXF and SMLib.
