Kisters enhances 3DViewStation with real time materials rendering 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 real time materials rendering function.

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 an ultra fast rendering engine for 3D CAD data of various sources, allowing to render shaded, with wire frames and in illustration mode” said Jim Eardly, Kisters North America Sales Manager. “Most recent additions allow to render close to photo realistic in real time, by adding materials, background images and skyboxes, which influence reflections.”

“Compared to other solutions the nicely rendered 3D CAD models can be viewed, rotated, zoomed and manipulated in real time in both, our Desktop and WebViewer products” he added “and no wait time will be experienced when generating high resolution image output, i.e. for marketing purposes.“

The latest enhancements of 3DViewStation can be reviewed in more detail at http://blog.Kisters.de.

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.
