Preview v2021: draft angle analysis shows undercuts
Mold and die customers are typical users of our draft angle analysis function. It is very fast and allows to investigate a part in order to identify production issues and estimate the complexity of the required tool. This finally has impact on the production price. 3DViewStation now helps identifying undercuts. This is an option which has been designed for performance. As a user you can now highlight the critical areas, which helps you focussing on the important areas.
Examples of draft angle analysis, with and without undercut option turned on:

Let's have a look what's new with 3DViewStation V2020.1:
Video: a typical workflow in casting industry
This video shows a typical workflow in casting industry: Loading the native files, isolating parts of interesst, analysing them using measurement, draft angle, wall thickness & split functions, saving the work in views, revision compare. This is all available in our 3DViewStation Desktop version as well as 3DViewStation WebViewer.
Preview: new split function
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:
New analysis function: recognition of drill holes
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: measure wallthickness in real time
Our wallthickness calculation has become that fast, that we are now able to provide a real time measurement function for the method "rolling ball". Have a look:
New: calculation of neutral axis
Available now: the calculation of the neutral axis has been added to the "Advanced Analysis" option of the 3DViewStation verfügbar. This allows a simple calculation of circle cylindric tube and pipe segments. Our implementation requires BREP data consisting of circle objects. Options allow to exclude potential distortions, like junctions or branches, or to show additional dimensions and internal help geometries.
