Software measures and checks wall thickness of 3D models.

Press Release Summary:

Used for locating and analyzing critical thickness areas of Pro/Engineer Wildfire 3D models, GeomCaliper can be accessed within Wildfire session to provide immediate feedback during design process. It helps engineers detect thin areas in plastic molded components that may result in warps, or thick sections in castings that may result in hot spots. Offering dynamic thickness display at point click, software can compute thickness at selected region and clip model at any section.

It is easy to use and can be accessed within a Wildfire session, providing immediate feedback to designers during the design process itself. Among other applications, it will help engineers to quickly detect thin areas in plastic molded components that may result into warps, or thick sections in castings that may result in hot spots. Minimal training is required to use the tool and interpret the generated results.

GeomCaliper provides users with:

o Quick and accurate thickness calculation
o Easy to locate and analyze critical thickness areas
o Advanced visualization for easy interpretation of results
o Ability to clip model at any section
o Dynamic thickness display at point click
o Compute thickness at selected region
o Customizable reports in XML /HTML format

GeomCaliper is based on PTC's Pro/Toolkit and leverages the mature API provided by PTC to 3rd party developers. Wildfire customers will benefit from it's 3D oriented productivity features such as advanced thickness map display and manipulation.

GeomCaliper for Pro/Engineer Wildfire supports Wildfire 1,2 and 3. Geometric showcased the product at the annual PTC/User conference held on June 4th -7th, 2006 in Dallas Texas. Detailed product information and limited period trial version of GeomCaliper for Pro/Engineer Wildfire is available at Geometric's website

GeomCaliper was launched on CATIA® V5 in March 2005. The tool has proved highly effective for design checks and optimization in powertrain.
