3DViewStation 2021.1.424: TIFF rendering ultra fast now

With the latest 3DViewStation relrease we replaced our previous TIFF rendere by a complete new developed one. Now Zomm and pan has become ultra fast, even for 10x A0 / 10x E-size drawings.
As another small enhancement we do not only allow calibration of a 2D drawing, but also to use a scale, like noted in the titleblock of the drawing.
The improvement is available for both, Desktop as well as WebViewer version of 3DViewStation.

All release information can be found in our helpcenter.

Preview v2021: snapping end and center points

This is a function, which has been requested by 2D customers, but it might be useful for 3D users as well: Since long 3DViewStation has a behaviour, that it starts snapping to characteristic points, when you start moving your mouse cursor close to it. I.e. when you do a point to point measurement, we might snap to an edge, which is close to your cursor. We now allow to limit the snapping to the centerpoint of the closest line or to an endpoint.

Preview v2021: save multiple views to 2D-PDF

3DViewStation frequently is leveraged to display views, i.e. PMI views / captures, which are contained in a CAD file. But user can also create their own views - and this can be many. For all types of views Kisters 3DViewStation shows preview images in the views pane. Since long we allow to export them as images or PDF individually. New with v2021 is the possibility to simply export all views into a single PDF in order to create an overview document.

PreView v2020: 2D Font substitution table

2D drawings may contain a set of fonts, which are typically not included with the drawing file, but which need to be installed on the local system in order to render the drawing correctly. So far we allowed to substitute all fonts by a configurable single one. 3DViewStation now will prompt, if one or several fonts could not be found and allows to maintain a font substitution table, assigning different fonts to each one, which could not be found.
