3DViewStation WebViewer - fast HTML5 CAD viewer

Web Viewer for 3D + 2D CAD and non-CAD data: 3DViewStation WebViewer

3DViewStation WebViewer is a HTML5 Browser and Cloud viewer - ideal for zero-admin Browser clients and mobile users

The 3DViewStation Web-Viewer is a highly performant browser version online CAD Viewer and universal viewer, which will allow you to access your 3D CAD data, 2D CAD drawings and non-CAD data anytime and anywhere and with any HTML5-capable desktop PC, notebook, tablet PC or smartphone running Windows, Linux, iOS, or Android.  A HTML5 capable browser is all you need - no client installation necessary ("zero install, zero admin"). The server can run in the Cloud or on premise - it's your decision.

3DViewStation WebViewer, Cloud viewer, Online CAD Viewer - Application scenarios:

Integrated 2D & 3D Online Viewer for HTML5-based browser applications, integrated in portals, xMS and PLM systems for the implementation of 2D & 3D viewing integrated in product configuration solutions, service lifecycle manaement applications or spare part portals, any other cloud solutions and PLM clients.

After authentication SMEs will use 3DViewStation WebViewer by leveraging a simple "File-Open" dialog, which will allow to browser on the server file system like you do when using Windows Explorer.

High performance operation even at narrow bandwidths and low-performance devices. Important when using CAD data: your IP (intellectual property) is protected when using 3DViewStation WebViewer. No geometries will be transmitted at any time, additionally we can alienate geometries, or prevent from sectioning and more.

3DViewStation WebViewer - Scenarios and Details:

View and analyze CAD assemblies and documents via a browser

All you need is a browser to get online access to all 3D CAD data, 2D drawings, Office documents and images of your enterprise.  Now you can make available not just the meta data of your products and parts to interested parties - product configuration solutions, service applications and spare part portals can now offer actual geometries and associated documents as well. Navigate quickly across entire assemblies, select individual parts, show or hide them from view, measure, section or explode assemblies, color geometries depending on a status, link geometries to metadata of your leading system, attach markups or text annotations to 3D CAD models, 2D drawings or Office documents - all that and more via just a web browser. A 3D-PDF can be provided, in case the user requires a download of a 3D geometry, or a 2D PDF in case of 2D drawings or Office documents.

Your geometries are safe

3DViewStation Web Viewer allows server-side rendering of geometries. That has plenty of benefits: At no time are entire geometries stored to the end device, as only image information is transmitted. Your geometries are therefore absolutely safe. Your data is rendered a lot faster - especially on small devices with a narrow bandwidth - than having to transmit entire geometries first for client-side rendering. Kisters 3DViewStation WebViewer can be used with virtually any operating system (including iOS), as server-side rendering requires no 3D support, even no WebGL, on the client.

No extras required on the client side: Zero footprint, zero admin

3DViewStation Web-Viewer requires no installation and is therefore an ideal solution for large-scale installations, occasional users, web portals, cloud solutions, and more. Admin tasks are required only for the server, which converts native CAD data into an internal format, into 3D PDF and a PreView image.

The following data formats are supported (see detailed list of formats on the right):
