KISTERS supports remote employees utilizing CAD data

Easy-to-use online collaboration, instant access and no download times

Sacramento, CA – June 22th, 2020 – Due to the world’s current pandemic, many companies have been forced to change their approach to collaboration. When it comes to online collaboration with 3D CAD data, issues can arise. Unsafe exchanges of complicated CAD data via email, FTP or cloud and long upload/download times, just to name a few. With VisShare and 3DViewStation WebViewer, KISTERS enables instant and secure access to your CAD data, fast performance and a rich set of interactive functionalities for users in all stages of the product lifecycle.

KISTERS VisShare is the web-based solution for online collaboration, running on premises or in the cloud. “It allows you to manage projects that consist of CAD files along with the respective users or user groups. Easy to define, easy to use. Even large assemblies can be viewed in seconds. Annotations can be added to support review processes and a series of views can be authored for shop floor preparation.” said Kelly Baumann, KISTERS North America Business Development Manager. “VisShare offers nice details such as: sending a link for a certain file to an occasional user, and this link has the potential to be a temporary one. To simplify the import of many files to VisShare, it also allows you to synchronize complete folders from a file server.” she added.

3DViewStation WebViewer is the visualization frontend of VisShare and can be used by itself as well. The simple file browsing across folder structures (similar to Windows file explorer) are favored by small enterprises. Both VisShare and 3DViewStation WebViewer ensure that your data is always secure, as there will never be a download of a file nor geometry at any time. In addition, both systems provide a rich set of 180+ interactive functions from navigation, measurements, sections and compare up to advanced analysis and Digital Mockup (DMU).

Known for its modern user-interface, high performance viewing, advanced analysis and integration capabilities into leading systems, 3DViewStation ships with current and mature importers for a broad range of 3D and 2D formats including i.e. Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, Revit, JT, 3D-PDF, STEP, DWG, DXF, DWF, MS Office and many more.

According to Baumann, KISTERS 3DViewStation is continuously enhanced in response to customer needs and requirements. It is available as Desktop, VR-Edition and HTML5 WebViewer product-versions plus the online collaboration tool VisShare. All product flavors are intended to be used together with a PLM, ERP or other management system product configuration or service and spare part applications, providing all necessary APIs. For cloud, portal and web-solutions, there is an HTML5-based WebViewer solution available, which does not require client installation. All file formats can be used in combination with the intelligent navigation and hyperlinking features to address the needs of complex integration scenarios.
