Compare Models

Perform a model-based CAD-CAD, CAD-FE or FE-FE comparison between two models, or two selections of entities, and find and report geometrical/shape differences.

When you are comparing entities, the entities must exist in the HyperWorks database. The Comparison tool generates results by comparing the source entities to the target entities. Currently, only surfaces and 2D elements are supported in the Comparison tool. The results generated by this tool can be broken down into the following categories: Matched, Overlapped, Intersected, and Unmatched.

From the Elements ribbon, click the arrow next to the Edit tool set name and select CAD/FE Comparison from the drop-down menu.
The Comparison dialog opens.
