Digital Mockup (DMU) with 3DViewStation

16-06-20gnikol

Find a few impressions of typical Digital Mockup (DMU) functions of Kisters 3DViewStation. Yes, we allow to load CAD data from various sources, which we call MultiCAD-DMU. But we do also do all these kind of analysis like clash, clearance (distance band), wall thickness, draft angle, undercut, split, convex hull, neutral fiber calculation and more...

  • re-design of clash:
          much faster, more accurate
          calculation of intersection curves, penetration depth and volume
          more display options, better presentation of results
  • Font recognition& replacement for 2D drawings (Advanced 2D file formats only)
  • "Filter" has been renamed to "Search"
  • Searching Semantic PMI has been added
  • introduction of a statusbar, information displayed will grow over time
  • discontinuations:
         we dropped HiCAD file format support
         we dropped 32-bit 3DViewStation Desktop version

PreView v2020: 2D Font substitution table

02-04-20gnikol

2D drawings may contain a set of fonts, which are typically not included with the drawing file, but which need to be installed on the local system in order to render the drawing correctly. So far we allowed to substitute all fonts by a configurable single one. 3DViewStation now will prompt, if one or several fonts could not be found and allows to maintain a font substitution table, assigning different fonts to each one, which could not be found.

 

PreView v2020: merge objects evolution

01-04-20gnikol

Sometimes it is convenient to merge several objects into a single one, which will reduce the number of nodes. This might simplify the future processing of an assembly, re-selecting a group of objects instead of just the clicked one, less nodes for clash...We now added a new option, which allows to select several subassemblies inside the structure tree and will merge each sub-tree to a single object. 

 

Preview v2020: Clash evolution

31-03-20gnikol

We did a complete redesign of our clash: much faster, many more options to calculate values of interesst, much better display of results...

 

PreView v2020: new UI color schemes

11-03-20gnikol

We will introduce new, fresh color schemes with the upcoming 3DViewStation v2020. Please get some impressions.

Discontinuations

06-03-20gnikol

We hereby inform about discontinuations related to all our 3DViewStation products:

We no longer support

  • 3DViewStation for 32-bit systems
  • HiCAD file format

New: UI layout variants to evaluate 3DViewStation options

02-03-20gnikol

To simplify the evaluation process related to the various 3DViewStation options we now added corresponding settings in the "applications" area.

New since v2019.1: several options to determine the wire color

24-01-20gnikol

Per default we used to render wires of a part in black. Since 3DViewStation v2019.1 users can now change the color by chosing between the known, typically black color, the vertex color, the exact of adjusted node color. The screenshots visualize the differences:

06-01-20gnikol

Find below a short overview over how it feels to work with VisShare: simply send a link to a 3D CAD model or give access to a project - online collaboration and sharing of even complex 3D CAD models has never been easier!

 

3DViewStation Desktop V2019.1 Release

19-12-19gnikol

We have released a new 3DViewStation Desktop version v2019.1 with a series of enhancements, described below. The new version is available for download now...

  • New and updated functions:
  • new options were added for neigborhood search: 
    • single resizeable box (also called boxing, zoning)
    • multiple boxes
    • single resizable sphere
    • multiple spheres
    • linear distance to selected geometric shape
  • merge several objects to a single one

Preview: Selection via linear distance

19-11-19gnikol

We now provide a solution to select and isolate objects which are close to the current selection. This is useful for i.e. piping objects, where a box or sphere would not help to select all objects, which are closer than a certain distance to the selection.

 

Preview: selection via box trap

12-11-19gnikol

With large asemblies like for aerospace, shipbuilding, plant, offshore or construction (BIM) it is useful to select a group of objects by applying one box, several individual or combined boxes or spheres. We now allow to generate these boxes or spheres, to move and resize them before perfoming the final selection.
