2D & 3D CAD analysis
The analysis of 2D & 3D CAD data is one of he main tasks of an advanced 3D CAD viewer. Kisters 3DViewStation provides a rich set of functionalities, is intuitive to use and fast.
In many stages of the product life cycle it is necessary to analyze 3D CAD data and 2D drawings. Of course these analysis can be performed using the native CAD system or other tools of the respective CAD vendor. Kisters 3DViewStation is a very cost effective solution, which works for data of almost all CAD systems, fast and intuitively. Kisters 3DviewStation works with native file formats like i.e Catia V5, Catia V6, NX, CreoElements/Pro-Engineer, SolidWorks, Inventor, SolidEdge, Parasolid and neutral file formats like STEP, 3D-PDF, JT but also DWG, DXF, 2D-PDF and many image file formats. Means, Kisters 3DViewStation is an adequate tool to do all your analyses independent of the file format. 3DViewStation allows you to establish popular file formats like 2D & 3D-PDF or JT as your standard process format for all necessary visualizations and analyses – and will be typically be used when free tools run into limitations.
Kisters 3DViewStation provides important analysis functions like measurements, dimensioning, section, 3D compare and true MultiCAD-DMU (Digital Mockup), means data from various CAD systems can be ad hoc imported, assembled and inspected – no need for pre-translation. For 2D drawings there are 2D measurements, 2D dimensions and 2D compare, implemented analog to their 3D counterparts.
For users from engineering, sales & marketing, design-review, change management, manufacturing Kisters 3DViewStation will be the reliable, efficient and cost effective 2D & 3D CAD visualization solution.
Kisters 3DViewStation Desktop version runs on Windows Desktops, notebooks and tablet-PCs. Kisters 3DViewStation also runs on Linux (req. Wine) and Mac-OS (req. Parallels). 3DViewStation clients run on all platforms and provide almost the same functionality as the Desktop version.
