Often times parts vary slightly in design, which can result in different geometry. The Compare Documents command is used to compare the document properties, the features used, the geometry itself, or a bill of materials between two documents in SOLIDWORKS. Because the documents can be so closely compared, it helps identify areas that may cause mechanical issues based on differences in the design geometry. This is an especially great tool for comparing imported geometry to a repaired or modified version of a design. Check out the video below to learn more!
