Aachen, 2013/11/15: KISTERS has announced the release 12.03 of the 3DViewStation. The KISTERS 3DViewStation is known for the modern user-interface, high performance 3D-viewing, current and mature CAD-importers plus a reasonable set of functional tools to view, analyze and communicate 3D-data.
3DViewStation V12.02 ships with a fresh Office 2013 compliant user interface and provides functionality, which can be leveraged by the user quite intuitively. The focus of the latest developments has been set to analysis functionality.
The 3DViewStation now allows to perform a draft angle analysis, which is frequently used by mold- and diemaker and casting companies. To define new directions it is now possible to create and activate new coordinate systems. Section panes, bounding boxes and measurements, i.e. in x- or y-direction only, typically use the currently active coordinate systems. As also the new measurement function does to determine the angle between a face and a direction. New is 3DViewStation V12.03 is the possiblility to create mirrored objects, useful i.e. to create the other missing half of a vehicle. To get a rough idea about the dimensions of an assembly you can now display a variable grid incl. a scale. Users of tech pubs will enjoy the new automatic assembly explode function.
Other news include support for SolidWorks 2014, SolidEdge ST6, Parasolid v26 and STEP AP 242 and the translation of native CAD data to JT, which now preserves all PMIs.
