MARLBOROUGH, Mass. -- January 14, 2014

Kubotek USA has officially released Kubotek Comparison Suite 2014. Kubotek
Comparison Suite 2014 adds significant user-driven improvements to save time
and improve user control over everyday tasks. Comparison Suite products
include Kubotek Validation Tool and ECO Manager.

The engineering change identification and documentation tools found in the
Kubotek Comparison Suite help users avoid the costs and pitfalls resulting
from undetected or undocumented engineering changes. Design and quality teams
gain confidence as they compare two CAD models, regardless of file type, to
find differences in product geometry, Model Based Definition (MBD) or Product
Manufacturing Information (PMI) contained in the 3D model. Any revisions can
then be documented and easily communicated via automated reports in PowerPoint
and 3D PDF formats as products work their way through the manufacturing

A significant enhancement of the Comparison Suite 2014 release is automatic 3D
PDF report creation. Users can create personalized engineering change reports
using the full functionality of 3D PDF without the need for secondary
software. These 3D PDF reports are fully supported by the Adobe Reader
software and provide powerful options for viewing, measuring, collaborating
and obtaining information related to engineering changes.

Other reporting enhancements include tools and features that make creating or
updating PowerPoint reports easier, including a new creation style that
automates the process of creating PowerPoint slides from each identified part
revision. Additional customer-driven improvements focus on increasing
productivity and updating the extensive CAD file reading capabilities of the
Comparison Suite products. A full list of new features and benefits found in
Comparison Suite 2014 can be found in the What’s New document.

Tony Anderson, VP and General Manager of Comparison Suite Products, states,
“3D PDF is becoming a very popular format for sharing 3D design change data
across engineering disciplines. Our Engineering Change Identification and
Documentation Tools take advantage of 3D PDF by giving its users more options
to view 3D change data. Kubotek’s customers depend on our ECO and Validation
tools to immediately identify and communicate design changes with accuracy in
a way that fits their needs.”

New and current users are urged to learn more about the enhanced functionality
by watching a webinar recording of What’s New in Comparison Suite 2014. This
update training details the latest upgrades and is available for viewing
