Elysium Inc. today announced the upcoming (April 9) release of NXdoctor, a Product Data Quality (PDQ) validation/repair tool specifically created for Siemens NX users.
NXdoctor, a Siemens NX plug-in, validates and repairs 3D CAD data and can be customized by OEMs to create a single standard across their manufacturing supply chain. Nissan Motor Company, for example, has adopted customized PDQ guidelines in NXdoctor to assure correct data for any subsequent 3D use scenario.
The automobile manufacturer’s PDQ criteria dictate a unique 3D data control checklist for itself and for suppliers. NXdoctor enables both Nissan and those who work with the company to validate and secure the quality of all sent and received CAD data pertaining to product design and development. The software allows users to check 3D data directly from within Siemens NX in accordance with Nissan’s strict specifications. Data meeting these requirements is validated by an encrypted authentication key.
Features of the new general release of NXdoctor include:
PDQ Validation of 27 critical check items and thresholds using ‘Check-Mate,’ which provides the same high level of accuracy as Elysium’s CADdoctor.
Healing using the ‘Full B-Rep Repair’ (automatic healing of the whole model) or ‘Repair with History’ (PMI and attribute information is stored and only sections with PDQ errors are repaired) option.
Input and output Elysium Neutral File (ENF) allowing NXdoctor repair results to be used freely on CADdoctor or ASFALIS.
