Fast file load, measurement, section, comparison up to clash, clearance, wall thickness, draft angle, undercut analysis for Catia, NX, Creo and more

Sacramento, CA – October 23, 2020 – KISTERS announced that its 3DViewStation has been integrated with 3DExperience and SmarTeam in order to provide a fast, advanced yet easy-to-use CAD visualization tool with rich functionality. KISTERS 3DViewStation supports the latest Catia releases, and also many other CAD file formats such as NX, Creo, Inventor, Solidworks, JT, STEP and many more.

“KISTERS 3DViewStation is a product family that gives customers the choice to use a desktop, web-based or a VR product. All of which are comparable in terms of functionalities and APIs, as they all share the same graphics kernel, developed by (and unique to) KISTERS. Our priorities were always: fast performance, ease-of-use, high level APIs for easy integration and latest file format support. Over the last ten years we have added numerous functions and features based on customer feedback. There are now 180+ functions, with 150+ settings.” said Jim Eardly, KISTERS North America Sales Manager, “KISTERS invites all 3DExperience and SmarTeam customers to choose 3DViewStation. We ensure current file format support, customizable UIs, availability of all necessary functionality and the support of current technologies like web or VR. We develop new or modified functionalities in close communication with our customers, ensuring the best user experience.”

 “Dassault 3DExperience platform and SmarTeam customers can enjoy short load times and extremely fast visualization performance, even on very complex CAD models consisting of millions of parts. Seamless integrations show 3DViewStation embedded into the UI of the 3DExperience or SmarTeam client or running with its own, full or customized UI. This allows use of all, or a designated amount of the 180+ functions. These include: measurements, graphical comparisons, full DMU (Digital Mockup) including clash, clearance, wall thickness analysis and also review processes leveraging a discussion thread.” Eardly added. “We have more than 3,000 companies using our software and we are often told that we provided exactly what they needed. Finally, we are really proud of our integrations. 3DViewStation Desktop or WebViewer users can also start a KISTERS VR-Edition session instantly from their PLM system, record any issues via voice recognition, automatically add preview images and comments to a PLM work item and forward this to the next user. Then the user is able to use our 3DViewStation WebViewer or Desktop version for review and finally turn to their CAD system to resolve the found issue.”
