Overview of the Kisters 3DViewStation version.
3DViewStation Desktop: 3D-CAD-Viewer + 2D Viewer: Your high-performance universal viewer.
The 3DViewStation includes important analysis functions such as measurement, dimensioning, mark-ups & text annotations, a 2D comparison function, a 3D comparison function, fly through and true MultiCAD DMU (Digital MockUp), i.e. simultaneous loading and analysis of data from different CAD Systems, without conversion. In order to protect your intellectual property (IP) 3DViewStation allows to automatically remove all invisible internal parts or to alienate geometries in cases when it is mandatory to forward files. 3DViewStation offers a complete programming interface (API) for automation and integration purposes.
Ease of operation due to a modern user interface
Intuitive handling is one of the basic principles of 3DViewStation. That's why we designed the new UI along the lines of Microsoft Office, adding some intuitive ribbons. The user interface can be adapted to your specific requirements, and a quick access toolbar can be added. Shortcut keys can be defined for frequently used functions.
Technology editors are always on the lookout for intuitive solutions to map and display products in various states. They need to hide or show parts, colour parts, create exploded views. Using the 3DViewStation you simply export the result as an image and integrate it into your work- or assembly instruction. If you prefer communicating your data in 3D, then you will love the export capabilities of 3DViewStation to STEP or 3D PDF.
To ensure that you can complete your work as continuously as possible, we have taken care to make the import interfaces of the CAD Viewer to the various CAD systems as fast as possible. And since the 3DViewStation is also available as a 64-bit version, we go beyond all memory limits. Turn on the turbo and use our internal data format whenever you need maximum performance.
Integration and automation
Geometries are often managed not only on the file system but also using ERP, PLM or other in-house developed data management systems. In order to enable any kind of automation, 3DViewStation has a rich programming interface (API) with which, among other things, geometries can be loaded and positioned, automatically compared and the storage location influenced. The 3DViewStation allows via API to color parts, dynamically build structures (e.g. variants and configurations), query the position and location of parts or send events to a leading application when a part is clicked - for example, to then search for metadata in PLM or ERP.
Zero Install, Zero Admin: 3DViewStation WebViewer is a HTML5 Browser and Cloud viewer – no installation required. Ideal for zero-admin Browser clients and mobile users.
This allows you to access your files at any time via an HMTL5-capable device, either on your company network or in a cloud. After integration into your primary system, the administration effort is limited to the server that converts the native CAD data into an internal format and/or into 3D PDF and a PreView image.
Application fields: Analyse CAD-assemblies
With the 3DViewStation WebViewer you can quickly and conveniently navigate through assemblies, select parts, show or hide them, click on a geometry and link it to metadata or documents from your system. Measure or cut or explode an assembly, color geometries according to their status, apply dimensions or annotations to 3D CAD models, drawings or documents: all via a browser. If a download of the 3D geometries is desired, a 3D PDF can be provided, in case of 2D drawings or office documents for example a 2D PDF.
Your geometries are safe
The 3DViewStation WebViewer allows server-side rendering of the geometries. This has several advantages: Since only image information is transferred to the end device, there are no geometries on the end device at any time. Your geometries are therefore secure (know-how protection, IP protection). Especially with small devices and low bandwidth, your data can be viewed much faster with our HTML5 viewer than if you first transferred the geometries and then rendered on the client side. Since server-side rendering does not require any 3D support on the client, i.e. no WebGL, the 3DViewStation WebViewer can be used with almost all operating systems and on almost all clients, including Android and iOS.
No effort on the client side: Zero Footprint, Zero Admin
The 3DViewStation WebViewer requires no installation effort and is therefore ideal for large installations, occasional users, browser users, web portals, cloud solutions and more. The administration effort is limited to the server, which converts the native CAD data into an internal format and/or into 3D PDF and a PreView image.
Why exchange CAD data via email, FTP or cloud in an insecure and complicated way? 3D collaboration has never been easier.
Neben den langen Up- und Download-Ladezeiten verlieren Sie auch immer einen wesentlichen Teil der Kontrolle über die eigenen Daten. Das war gestern: VisShare ist die sichere und flexibel anpassbare firmeninterne Kooperationsumgebung für Ihr Unternehmen. Als Plattform mit gemeinsamer Datenbasis und intuitiver Oberfläche ermöglicht VisShare allen Mitarbeitern den unternehmensweiten Zugriff und einheitlichen Blick auf Ihre CAD-Daten. Daten können einfach und sicher miteinander geteilt, verwaltet, kontrolliert, visualisiert und analysiert werden. Damit ist es die ideale Lösung für eine effiziente Zusammenarbeit und ermöglicht transparente Prozesse und Workflows über Fach- und Abteilungsgrenzen hinweg. Eine Benutzer- und Gruppenverwaltung (Teams) regelt die Zugangskontrolle und Rechte. Damit lässt sich VisShare auch gleichzeitig als Frontend für Partner, Lieferanten und Kunden einsetzen, ganz ohne großen Konfigurations- und Installationsaufwand. Einfach auf einem Server installieren – und fertig. Es ist keinerlei Client-Installation notwendig (“zero-Install, zero-Admin”). Sofort steht VisShare allen zur Verfügung, auch mobil. Nutzen Sie Ihr Handy, iPad oder Laptop, um auch von unterwegs aus zu arbeiten. Durch das serverseitige Rendering visualisieren und analysieren Sie nicht nur mobil größte Baugruppen mit hundertausenden Bauteilen in Sekundenschnelle. Es werden auch keine 3D-Daten auf das Endgerät übertragen. Die Daten bleiben sicher vor Verlust auf Ihrem Server.
Create as many users as you like, there is no limitation. Everyone gets his personal area, where he can manage his own data and share it individually with others. A user is also able to create new groups, invite other users or release data from his personal area for groups. In addition, data can also be "published" so that it is visible to every VisShare user, useful for showcases, for example.
It is also possible to share individual files, for example with external third parties: Create a link for the file, send it to the recipient via VisShare, set a time validity, a time start and end point or even the frequency of viewing - you retain full control over your data. Links can also be withdrawn or deleted. And for a closer, temporary collaboration with third parties, simply send out a member invitation. With this invitation, anyone can join the appropriate group after authentication.
