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: Quick Import Dialog for Desktop Version

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.

  • new: re-calculate edges of geometries, i.e. to allow measurements
  • new: calculation of neutral axis of piping objects
  • new: scale geometry interactively
  • new: measure face without need to extract face first
  • new: real time wall thickness measurement
  • new: Skybox creator (Windows Desktop App)
  • new menu layout, close to MS Office:
    • combine windows to custom layout
    • allow windows / panes to be pinned / automatically collapse at the side
    • allow windows / panes to float
  • 2 different menu designs for large PC screens and small mobile devices
  • radial menu for touch devices

Preview: new option to mirror objects

We will introduce a new option to mirror objects: you can now determine one face of the bounding box, which will be used for mirroring. The mirrored object(s) will then be moved to that face.

Preview: formatting text files

3DViewStation also supports 2D file formats, incl. text files. These text files frequently are generated automatically, without any layout. We now added settings to specify i.e. paper size, borders etc. in order to format such text files on screen.
