New video: virtual inspection using our VR-Edition

22-12-18gnikol

Our partner Piterion provided this video, showing how a virtual inspection could look like, when using VR technology. They integrated 3DViewStation VR-Edition with Siemens ActiveWorkspace and drive it via voice recognition. Great job! Have look:

 

Preview: new functions for technical documentation (TechDoc)

19-12-18gnikol

Many customers already use 3DViewStation for authoring of content for the technical documentation. Now we are doing the next steps: the BOM function has been re-worked to allow manual or automatic generation of BOM IDs for all visible objects. and we'll get a function to automatically create the callouts including an automated arrangement, following certain layouts. Have a look:

 

Preview: new split function

02-12-18gnikol

With upcoming 3DViewStation 2019.0, expected in early 2019, we'll add a new split function. Ideal for casting, mold making and plastic injection companies. It allows to determine the splitting direction, manual assignment of faces to certain groups, and also supports multiple splitting directions. Here an impression:

Preview: support for Revit

21-11-18gnikol

With upcoming updates of the 3DViewStation product family we will add support for AutoDesk Revit. The sample shows how it could look like...

We were awarded: Computable Award 2018: Digital Innovation Of The Year

30-10-18gnikol

We are the graphics of the new product configurator at DAF trucks. The solution has been nominated for a technology award. And we are proud to announce, that we won in the category "Digital Innovation Of The Year". See also press release on DAF web site.

 

New analysis function: recognition of drill holes

29-08-18gnikol

Find below an impression of a new analysis function, our drill hole recognition. This function just needs tesselation of a geometry and will try to recognize drill holes first plus will compute a set of parameters afterwards.

Preview: Quick Import Dialog for Desktop Version

20-08-18gnikol

We are working on a new dialog for the 3DViewStation Desktop product, which should help to quickly choose the most important setting when loading native 3D CAD files. You might have seen this with our WebViewer version before already.
