This is big. Huuuuge! I’ve talked before about our ability to easily cross check between the Layout and Shop drawings. Now you can cross check from the other direction – when you are in the shop drawing, you can now check the corresponding panel which exists in the layout.

You can clearly see any differences.

So now if someone moves a ferrule or a cast in plate etc. you will be able to easily see those changes.

It could save you from some expensive errors.
Here is the demo. I hope you enjoy it!

Features:

  • It can work for all clients with only very minor modifications. Very well abstracted out in the code.
  • It is super fast. Comparing the thousands of elements in each drawing takes a bit of computing power – but with smart algorithms, you can cut down the time.
  • It works for all sorts of edge cases – what if the panel was made up of arcs, polylines and straight lines – this plugin can handle all sorts of things. It can also handle voids.
