Multiple Checks

Multiple Checks perform multiple checks using a single interface.

If the Offset check is ON, CAD data will be offset using thickness value. Offset CAD data will be used to check all other checks. Check and Reports are sequentially executed for each check. Offset, Intersection, Spotweld, Connection, Free Part check uses Base Model selection alone and ignores Variant model selections. The comparison function uses both Base Model and Variant Model selections. The check item's input rules are as per individual checks explained in respective check functions.

  1. In the Comparison Browser, right-click and select Check > Multiple_Checks from the context menu.
    The Model Verification dialog opens.
  2. Upload the base model using the Base Model options.
    1. Select an import type.
    2. Select a data type.
    3. Navigate to the model to import.
  3. Upload the variant model using the Variant Model(s) options.
    1. Select an import type.
    2. Select a data type.
    3. Navigate to the model to import.

  4. Select the type of checks to perform, and define additional settings as needed.
  5. In the Report Path, navigate to the directory where the reports generated by the Model Verification tool will be stored.
  6. In the Project Name field, enter a name for the project.
  7. In the Slide Number field, enter a starting number of the slides to use in the PowerPoint report.

    For example, if you enter a value of 1 for the slide number, then the slide numbers in the report starts from 0001.

  8. Choose a method for running the model.
    • Choose Interactive to run the model in the same Engineering Solutions session.
    • Choose Background to launch a new Engineering Solutions session in batch mode and perform the operation. The Background run mode is faster than the Interactive mode and also allows you to utilize multiple processors that are available on the machine to complete the operation faster. Each pair of models are divided and handled in multiple Engineering Solutions sessions depending on the number of processes selected.
  9. For Action, choose to an operation to perform.
    • Choose Check to only perform a check.
    • Choose Report to generate a PowerPoint report.
    • Choose Both to perform a check and generate a report.
  10. Click Run.
