Latest software update includes productivity tool for quality control applications
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. Nov. 18, 2014 -- CCE, a leading engineering software and services provider, announced a new release of EnSuite, which includes support for the latest CAD formats and new features for CAD viewing and quality control applications.
“We are very pleased to be making continuous improvements to our products and services. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of all of our users by expanding and refining our products and services, based on customer feedback. This latest update is another step in that direction,” said CCE’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Vinay Wagle.
EnSuite has expanded support for viewing and translating parts and assemblies, and for the latest versions of many major CAD formats, including Creo 3.0, Solid Edge ST7, and Autodesk Inventor 2015. EnSuite already supports the latest versions of other CAD systems, including CATIA V5-6R2014, CATIA V6-R2013X, NX 9, and JT 9.5, among others. Support for SolidWorks 2015 will be available very soon!
EnSuite now also includes key enhancements for the embedded CAD viewers, which provide users with greater flexibility and control over their design data. Some of these updates include:
Spin Tool: A new tool was added to the viewer toolbar to allow users to rotate 3D CAD models in the directions normal to the screen, in all applicable standard views. By default, the model rotates around the model center, but users are given additional control to specify the “spin center” as a point around which the spin tool would rotate the model. This is especially useful while navigating around an assembly or multi-body model, where users might want to isolate and rotate around a particular part or face.
Save Custom Views: Users now have the ability to change the orientation of the model, either by choosing any of the standard views or by rotating and panning the model and saving the custom view for future reference. This is an extremely useful functionality that provides users with greater flexibility to save user-defined view definitions for future use in engineering documentations.
In addition to these new features and updates, a new productivity tool, “Measure Area/Perimeter,” has also been introduced in EnSuite. This productivity tool computes the surface area and perimeter of a selected face and is particularly useful in quality control processes, where users are often tasked with comparing two versions of the same model. Besides comparing the physical properties of the entire model, users can now pick specific faces (external or internal) in EnSuite, and compare the area and perimeter with the source file.
Customers with an active subscription can get free access to these new EnSuite updates.
