ModelCompare is a plugin for post-processing software, which provides a seamless interface to compare two similarly discretized finite element models and visualizes their differences in terms of geometry, thickness, material properties, rigid body elements and spotwelds. The tool compares the geometry of two models based on their discretization meshes and is independent of meta data of the parts. From the ground-up, the software has been designed to be efficient and easy to use, by employing modern mapping techniques which result in extremely short runtimes.
