New version also adds SolidEdge Version 14, XGL/ZGL, SAT in addition to the new publishing option.
PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 3, 2003-- Informative Graphics Corporation (IGC), a leader in web publishing, viewing and collaboration technology, today announced the release of MYRIAD version 6.1 view and markup software, which now supports Solid Edge Version 14, XGL / ZGL, and Spatial ACIS SAT, as well as a new MYRIAD Publishing Option add-on to facilitate downstream visual access of CAD design content and markup changes.
Informative Graphics has maintained a product-design focus on
simplifying the downstream access of CAD and related document content.
The MYRIAD Publishing option generates HTML pages that can be easily
added or linked to existing web sites to support fully interactive
viewing of 3D CAD models, as well as author-specified views and markup
changes. The MYRIAD Publishing Option creates HTML pages on-the-fly
that have various levels of interactivity, based on the user's
CAD assemblies and selected model parts can be published to the
company's own ISF file format with security rights, and are viewable
with IGC's freely-distributed ModelPress Viewer. MYRIAD utilizes the
industry-leading ModelPress 3D compression algorithms, surmounting the
difficulty of using intranets/extranets to transfer and view large,
complex 3D models. Models can also be compressed, published, and then
emailed directly to a reviewer. ISF files are often 70-98% smaller in
size than the original CAD model.
Alternatively, 3D assemblies and parts can be published as an
interactive set of pre-rendered images to be viewed with a
Java-enabled browser via a freely distributed player, also from IGC.
This low bandwidth option allows 3D-like interaction with CAD model
assemblies, sub assemblies, parts and explodes from author-specified
views (front, side, top, etc). Parts can be identified in exploded
views and viewed individually to give basic extent size information.
MYRIAD's Changemarks(R) feature can be used to publish a series of
3D/2D CAD and document markups as HTML pages. Reviewers can then step
through them using any Web browser. This option enables engineering
change orders and engineering change requests to be distributed and
reviewed easily and ubiquitously.
Examples of HTML pages created by the MYRIAD Publishing Option can
be viewed at
"MYRIAD 6.1 underscores our longstanding commitment to provide
high value at low per-seat costs," said Gary Heath, President at IGC.
"There are many CAD viewer products available, but only MYRIAD gives
users so many easy and powerful ways to publish and view the data. It
redefines versatility and convenience in moving design content
downstream to all those who need to work with it," he added.
