Video – Customizing the UI

25-11-13gnikol

This video shows several possibilities to customize the UI of the Kisters 3DViewStation, i.e. to maximize size of the graphics area by minimizing other windows. Hide the ribbons, let windows disappear automatically, have windows float, add & remove controls to the quick access toolbar, arrange own layout of the windows. Here is the english version of the video.

We added a video to our YouTube channel, showing some of the 3DViewStation V12.03 news: watch english video here

3DViewStation V12.03

18-11-13gnikol

We have done a new 3DViewStation version v12.03 with a series of enhancements, described below. The new version is available for download now.

Fileformats:

  • New importer: SolidWorks 2014, SolidEdge ST6, Parasolid v26, STEP AP 242
  • PMI support for JT export

Features:

  • draft angle analysis
  • explode assembly automatically
  • mirror object
  • create coordinate system
  • measure angle of face to direction (x/y/z)
  • calculate projected area
  • transformation: enter values, i.e. to move a part, to move the section pane, to rotate an object…
  • focus on selected part (zoom on it)
  • selection via rectangle
  • show grid

 

Integration 3DViewStation in Aras Innovator

04-11-13gnikol

We started the integration of the Kisters 3DViewStation into Aras Innovator. It is intended to have it certified and it will then be the DMU-solution for Aras innovator. We did a series of short videos showing several scenarios:

  • native CAD viewing vs. 3DVS-fileformat viewing
  • creating true multiCAD DMUs – mixing assemblies coming from various sources without upfront translation
  • comparing revisions of assemblies
  • using color coding to graphically show the release status of all parts of an assembly
  • virtual product handling: support of assemblies where the BOM and position information is defined in Aras Innovator only – no CAD assembly file exists.

Here is the link to the complete playlist for Aras integrations.
