Kisters enhances 3DViewStation with advanced 3D CAD model analysis functions

(PresseBox) Kisters North America has released version 2017 of its 3DViewStation Desktop, a powerful 3D CAD viewer and universal viewer for engineers and designers. The new version features several updates, including wall thickness analysis via rolling ball method and sections of selections.

Known for its modern user-interface, high performance viewing, advanced analysis and integration capabilities into leading systems, 3DViewStation ships with current and mature importers for a broad range of 3D and 2D formats including i.e. Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, JT, 3D-PDF, STEP, DWG, DXF, DWF, MS Office and many more.

“Kisters 3DViewStation provides a rich set of analysis functions, which is used on a daily basis by many users of the manufacturing industry.” said Jim Eardly, Kisters North America Sales Manager. “Basic functions include measurements and sections, recently extended by an option to only section a selection. Advanced analysis functions allow 2D and 3D compare, projected area calculation, draft angle analysis and clash detection.”

“3DViewStation allows to perform wall thickness measurements & dimensions and also a wall thickness analysis based on the ray method.” He added. “The result will be displayed as a so called heat map, showing graduated colors which reflect the calculation results. Depending on the geometry of the CAD model the new, alternative rolling ball method leads to much better results.”

According to Eardly, the Kisters 3DViewStation is continuously enhanced in response to customer needs and requirements. It is available as Desktop, ActiveX and HTML5 WebViewer product-versions. All product flavors are intended to be used together with a PLM, ERP or other management system product configuration or service and spare part applications, providing all necessary APIs. For cloud, portal and web-solutions, there is an HTML5-based WebViewer solution available, which does not require client installation. All file formats can be used in combination with the intelligent navigation and hyperlinking features to address needs of complex integration scenarios.
