Aachen, 2014/02/10: KISTERS has announced the release 2014 of the 3DViewStation. The KISTERS 3DViewStation is known for the modern user-interface, high performance 3D-viewing, current and mature CAD-importers for i.e. Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, JT, 3D-PDF and STEP plus a reasonable set of functional tools to view, analyze and communicate 3D-data as i.e. STEP, JT or 3D-PDF.
3DViewStation V2014 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 customization of the user interface and BREP export capabilities.
The KISTERS 3DViewStation now provides several additional ways of UI customization: a pure left mouse button mode has been added to simplify the usage for occasional and also tablet-PC (finger) users. Mouse users now can determine, which functions should be performed when pressing the middle or right mouse button. The quick access toolbar can be customized and is pre-set now, so that frequently used functions are available without accessing the ribbon menu. Also, accelerator keys are defined for several functions and can be customized as per the user’s needs. Finally via XML the complete UI of the KISTERS 3DViewStation can be redefined.
The second focus of the v2014 developments was the export of modified geometries into all possible fileformats, like 3D-PDF, JT, STEP and more. Besides the straight conversion of files KISTERS 3DViewStation now allows to export manipulated assemblies: delete parts, move and rotate parts and save the result as i.e. JT or 3D-PDF is possible now. Also exports of manipulated assemblies into BREP based fileformats like STEP, Parasolid works now.
Other news include an optimized BREP based compare function, the display of annotations and dimensions in the modeltree and the support for NX 9. Tech-pubs will like the associated lines, which can be drawn now when exploding an assembly.
The new features of 3DViewStation can be reviewed in our BLOG too.
