Verify the Accuracy of 3D Data Translations

Easily meet DPD/MBD process requirements when translating models from native CAD format to alternate formats

VALIDATE: Automate how you document the MCAD dataset translation process, featuring the fastest processing and simplest interface

Quality Compliance

Many aerospace part suppliers in DPD/MBD programs are required to document their method of verifying the accuracy within tolerance of MCAD file translations. Kubotek Kosmos Validate is the leading standalone program for providing fast, complete inspection of translations (including PMI data) and automated compliance reporting to meet standards like Boeing D6-51991 Rev N.

Reads All Major MCAD Files

• Creo • SolidWorks • STEP
• and others

Verify Translation Accuracy Fast

Validate uses our proprietary, engineered-from-the-shop-floor-up universal geometric database. We built this so that models from any major MCAD format retain the highest possible data integrity when translated. (It's so powerful we license it to other developers of engineering software.) This same level of data specificity is applied when Validate interrogates the authority dataset and derivatives.

Validate comprehensively evaluates differences as a truly neutral third-party auditor so you can demonstrate the verification / interrogation methods used to identify potential discrepancies. 

  • Meets all aerospace industry CAD data validation and documentation requirements
  • Translates all major file formats, no CAD software required
  • Pattern matching comparison method provides objective evidence validating the translation process
  • Fully multi-threaded architecture delivers unmatched speed and performance
  • Powered by our independent, CAD-neutral 3D Framework

The Tools You Need

Objective evidence to maintain for audits

Now you can automate the process of creating the objective reports required to be maintained in the event of an OEM audit. Validate auto-generates a PDF for immediate use or sharing. The software also stores a complete verification history: view the complete dataset of any comparison your team has performed with just a few clicks. This evidence cannot be manipulated by an external viewer or user.

Validate software screen capture showing successful CAD translation verification
Validate's full face-to-face comparison (not just sampled points) ensures your report thoroughly and effortlessly documents model translation


Validate software screen capture showing error detection
Any translation data error is highlighted and documented, including those that basic visual inspection of the model would not reveal
