Sheffield, UK, 8th December 2006: NavisWorks Ltd., developers of interactive viewing technology and JetStream, the leading 3D design review solution, today announced enhanced support for Intergraph's PDS software with the latest JetStream release.
JetStream v5.2 introduces support for Intergraph's PDS software .dri file format. This development increases the benefit of JetStream to PDS users and again demonstrates our commitment to interoperability and delivering collaborative design review. The .dri works as a reference file for PDS, pulling together multiple files including .dgn and .drv files, as well as co-ordinate and unit information, tying them all together in a single project space in JetStream.
In addition support for AEC Design Group's AutoCAD-based CADPIPE is updated in line with its latest 2007 release. The JetStream 3D Studio Max exporter will now work with 3DSMax8. NavisWorks files can now be exported from ArchiCAD, version 10 and our SolidWorks, SolidEdge and Revit file support has been updated to the latest version.
This release adds complete Simplified Chinese localisation to German and Japanese and the French GUI.

JetStream v5.2 delivers a productivity tool that enables all the MicroStation .dgn files in a directory (and sub-directories) to be converted into NavisWorks files using the MicroStation exporter.
