AutoVue Functionality - Compare

One of the valuable things AutoVue allows you to do is to compare a pair of 2D or 3D documents. This allows you to easily determine what has changed between two versions of a document - for instance if you want to be sure that your comments on an older version have been properly incorporated.

2D compare is done as a graphical compare, showing version 1 and version 2 of the documents, along with the compare window, which shows things that were added or taken away between the two documents. The following image shows an example of 2D compare.

3D compare takes advantage of the structure of the 3D model to do a more intelligent compare - There is a graphical compare similar to what we do for 2D, but there is also an attribute compare that will tell you if any attribute data has changed, such as the material, for instance. The following image shows you the graphical comparison of two versions of a simple 3D model.

And this image shows you what the Attribute compare looks like for a part that has had a subtle change to it's colour.

AutoVue's 2D and 3D compare functionality is a very valuable tool to use during design reviews, or any time a document has been modified.
