Problem caused by Microsoft Spring Update for Windows 10 - please update to v2018.0!

Unfortunately with v2017.1 we have problems reading DWG, DXF, DGN files. The problem is caused by the latest  Microsoft Spring Update for Windows 10. 
Please update to v2018.0 and the problem will be resolved.

Preview: heal data - generate wires

We typically need to view and measure all data which we get. To be able to measure on data we need wires. But sometimes there are no wires at all or the quality of the wires is so poor, that we cannot do any measurements. To solve this problem 3DViewStation now allows to remove existing wires and to generate them again.

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:

Now you can scale objects interactively - so far this was possible via API only. An impression:

Preview: optimize instances - reduce file size

in the upcoming release we will auomatically recognize instances, which will result in smaller files and faster load times. You might see significant advantages with large assemblies.

How Kisters helps SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to get mobile access to their CAD data

SMEs (small and medium enterprises) internally typically work file based, storing all their CAD and project files in folders of their file server. But employees of SMEs are mobile too and we all know the situation of getting an urgent call while travelling, being asked for immediate assistance.

What can we do, if we now would need access to our 3D CAD models, 2D drawings or any project related documentation?

The easy solution is a Web based application that – after logon of course – will provide a “file open”  dialog, which we all know from our Desktop applications. But in the case of working Web based this “file open”  dialog needs to point to a directory of one of OUR servers, allowing to browse through files and sub folders, and open files from there. Of course the server of this Web application will run on our infrastructure – so in the same network, where our files reside.

Advantages of this approach are:

  • It is an easy way to make CAD files and documents accessible from outside: just copy & paste them to  a defined location or in a sub folder of it.
  • There are no download required
  • There will be no files on our mobile device at any time. No risk to lose them, no need to protect our IP, no problem with file sizes, I.e. for large assemblies
  • Very fast mobile access, short loadtimes
  • Always access to the current files, not working with outdated local copies.

Here is an example of a solution and how it could look like on a Smartphone. More details here.

3DViewStation WebViewer allows secure and fast communication of extremly complex 3D CAD Data

Kisters 3DViewStation WebViewer provides several options to secure the access of §D CAD data as much as possible: alienate geometries, remove internal parts, prevent from sectioning, load assemblies dynamically and i.e. do not even load certain objects, backend communication between server components, never having any 3D geometries on the client device...

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.
