Parent page: CAMtastic Commands

The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:

Applied Parameters: CommandMode=CAM


This command is used to compare two or more layers and show the differences between them.


This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the View » Views » Difference command from the main menus.


First, enable only the layers that you wish to compare in the layers list of the CAMtastic panel.

After launching the command, the layers will be compared and each object that is not found to be precisely the same on at least one other layer, will be displayed as a difference.


  1. Launching the command will actually toggle the view mode to Difference. Any other layers you enable will be included in the comparison. Launch the command again to change back to Normal viewing mode.
