Moving into our new building
This week the visualization team moved into our new building. Kisters headquarter has now grown to this area:
Digital Mockup (DMU) with 3DViewStation
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...
Video: 3DViewStation Desktop V2020.0 News
Let's have a look what's new with 3DViewStation Desktop V2020.0:
3DViewStation Desktop v2020.0 Release
We have released a new 3DViewStation Desktop version v2020.0 with a series of enhancements, described below. Please also review our recent BLOG preview entries. The new version is available for download now...
- New and updated file formats:
- Import 3D:
NX 1899, Parasolid 32 , Revit 2020, Revit reading performance improvement
- Import 2D:
CATIA: V5-6R2020 (R30), NX: 1899, 1903, 1904, 1907
- New and updated functions:
- Fresh UI layout with several color schemes
- supporting the evaluation processes of our customers:
in the application settings there are now options to select UI configurations according to available optional modules
- faster start of 3DViewStation Desktop
- Neighborhood Search (Linear, Box trap) (since v2019.1)
- Edge color (wire) is customizable, several options
- Merge objects: merge all selected objects to a single one or to several by selected sub-assembly
- 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
we dropped HiCAD file format support
we dropped 32-bit 3DViewStation Desktop version
we dropped Addon DropConvert
PreView v2020: 2D Font substitution table
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
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
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
We will introduce new, fresh color schemes with the upcoming 3DViewStation v2020. Please get some impressions.
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
To simplify the evaluation process related to the various 3DViewStation options we now added corresponding settings in the "applications" area.
