Visualise and an­a­lyse large 3D CAD mod­els faster

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - 3D IMAGING -

Kis­ters has re­leased the 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top ver­sion. The Kis­ters 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top is known, says the com­pany, for its mod­ern user-in­ter­face, high per­for­mance 3D-view­ing, ad­vanced anal­y­sis and Dig­i­tal MockUp (DMU). 3DViewS­ta­tion ships with cur­rent and ma­ture CAD-im­porters for a broad range of for­mats in­clud­ing i.e. Ca­tia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, JT, 3D-PDF and STEP plus an ex­ten­sive set of func­tional tools to view, an­a­lyze and com­mu­ni­cate 3D-data as i.e. STEP, JT or 3D-PDF.

Al­though Kis­ters 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top has been very fast al­ready be­fore, the fo­cus of the de­vel­op­ments of 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top V2016 has been set to op­ti­mize fur­ther the han­dling of ex­tremely large as­sem­blies and en­hance­ments of the anal­y­sis func­tions.

The graph­ics ker­nel, which is a Kis­ters de­vel­op­ment, has been op­ti­mised again to cut down load times by 50 per­cent in 3DVS file for­mat and to re­duce mem­ory us­age by 60 per­cent – 70 per­cent. Also the file size of 3DVS files has been re­duced by 20 per­cent – 30 per­cent .

As an ex­am­ple, a com­plete truck, be­ing more than 3 GB of JT pure tes­sel­la­tion file will be re­duced to 450 MB in 3DVS file for­mat and will load in 10 sec­onds on an i5 note­book com­puter, us­ing less than 500 MB mem­ory. Han­dling and anal­y­sis of this model is work­ing f lu­ently.

There have also been other en­hance­ments: • File for­mat sup­port has been up­dated, now in­clud­ing SolidEdge ST8, SolidWorks 2016, STEP AP 242 XML. • Font sub­sti­tu­tion has been added for DXF, DWG and DGN. • Co­or­di­nate sys­tem and an­gle

di­men­sions now show pre­views be­fore fin­ish­ing them. • 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top now uses the new XML-API in­ter­nally. • It is now pos­si­ble to share f loat­ing li­cences be­tween 3DViewS­ta­tion Desk­top and 3DViewS­ta­tion We­bViewer. The KIS­TERS 3DViewS­ta­tion is de­vel­oped by very closely fol­low­ing cus­tomer re­quire­ments; it is avail­able as Desk­top, Ac­tiveX and HTML5 We­bViewer prod­uct-ver­sions. All prod­uct f lavours are in­tended to be used to­gether with a PLM-, ERP- or other man­age­ment sys­tem like prod­uct con­fig­u­ra­tion or ser­vice and spare part ap­pli­ca­tions, pro­vid­ing all nec­es­sary APIs. For cloud, por­tal and web-so­lu­tions there is a HTML5based We­bViewer so­lu­tion avail­able, which does not re­quire any client in­stal­la­tion at all. All file for­mats can be used in com­bi­na­tion with the in­tel­li­gent nav­i­ga­tion and hy­per­link­ing fea­tures to ad­dress needs of com­plex in­te­gra­tion sce­nar­ios.
