Do PLM-systems offer sufficient 3D visualization solutions?

02-09-14gnikol

We observe a high variety of visualization concepts provided by PLM-systems. Some focus on neutralizing 3D-CAD data to i.e. JT or 3D-PDF, some integrate high end DMU tools, some could work with any visualization solution, means, there is no integration at all.But is there an ideal solution, are there any minimum requirements which should be fulfilled? We at Kisters believe, that only the customer can decide on that. The customer knows his processes and he will i.e. define a requirement for native CAD viewing in cases of many ad hoc processes or frequent on site meetings for design reviews with latest data – the PLM-system should not limit him in his decision.In case of using neutralized light weight process formats JT is an important standard, but it’s just one among several other file formats. Many customers today prefer 3D-PDF as most of the users with basic requirements are familiar with Adobe Reader. So we sometimes find a discussion JT vs 3D-PDF and often it turns out to become a tool question.Is there a tool like TC-Vis for 3D-PDF or native 3D-CAD data?Yes, there is. Kisters 3DViewStation is a fast viewing solution for all 3D native + neutral CAD incl. JT and 3D-PDF, for really large assemblies, is designed for PLM-integration, has the ability to also load virtual product structures via API, to create hyperlinks between geometries and associated documents or data. The many Freebees available typically provide just basic functionality, a Kisters 3DViewStation integration would enable most users of a PLM-process-chain to do their job, fast & intuitive in a managed environment. For engineering users it might be the analysis tool, for sales users the tool to help on quotations, for purchase users the tool to convert into JT or 3D-PDF to send lightweight 3D-CAD data to suppliers, for project engineers the first choice to prepare design review meetings, for others the authoring tool for the shopfloor.
Kisters 3DViewStation, available as Desktop, ActiveX and WebViewer version, is developed close to customers & integrators requirements. Get an idea about 3DViewStation here: https://viewer.kisters.de/en/kisters-products/3dviewstation-desktop.html.
