3DViewStation WebViewer allows secure and fast communication of extremly complex 3D CAD Data

22-04-18gnikol

Kisters 3DViewStation WebViewer provides several options to secure the access of §D CAD data as much as possible: alienate geometries, remove internal parts, prevent from sectioning, load assemblies dynamically and i.e. do not even load certain objects, backend communication between server components, never having any 3D geometries on the client device...

3DViewStation WebViewer 2015 video

A quick tour showing latest Kisters 3DViewStation WebViewer version, your solution for mobile user, who need secure access to their 3D CAD data.

Preview: Kisters WebViewer version 2015

17-02-15gnikol

We are making progress on the release of our WebViewer 2015 version.
This is a completely rewritten Browser / Cloud viewer providing these highlights:

  • runs as fast as the Desktop version
  • can work on native CAD files or 3DVS file format – for top performance
  • provides same APIs as Desktop product
  • 3D data secured: pure server side rendering

So we are breaking barriers: even mobile users now can get access to all CAD data, even with low bandwidth and large assemblies, allowing to perform same analyses as on Desktop.

 

3D CAD Viewer on Tablet-PCs?

18-01-14gnikol

We notice an increasing choice of mobile devices. We all use notebooks, smartphones and tablets on a daily basis. That’s all proven for typically used apps like email, messenger, browser, games and specialized services like maps and hotels. But what about 3D CAD viewing? Does it make sense to run them on a smartphone? Is it possible at all? Let’s look at some concepts.

The smallest devices are smartphones. If we are travelling we typically have a rather low bandwidth available compared to WiFi and a small screen. Would we like to travel with some native CAD data on our phone? We do not believe in that. We think that we need a concept to get an as fast as possible access to data, which are stored somewhere in the cloud, maybe a private one, maybe a PLM-based respository. To optimize use experience we would translate native CAD data into light weight formats in advance. We would give the user a client, which displays a rendition, generated on a server in realtime. We would let the user select parts, rotate, zoom and pan with his fingers and have a server executing all commands. Because we do not want to let our users wait, until some 3D data will be received on his device.

On the larger 8 or 10 inch tablets  we have the choice between several operating systems and native apps and browser based clients. The browser based will work on all operating systems, if you have a server render the geometries and will still work on many systems as long as there is WebGL available (so not iOS, but the rest). Don’t let us forget tablet PCs running Windows. We find them more and more and they have one advantage: you might run RT apps or native Windows applications. This allows to run full blown 3D CAD viewers including native CAD reading support and the complete set of i.e. analsysis, markup and text annotation functions. They are not redeveloped and cut down to a quite limited functional set.

With our 3DViewStation product family we at Kisters adress many mobile usage scenarios: run our Kisters 3DViewStation WebViewer clients on all devices and operating systems. Take the advantage of server side rendering for mobile users, for limited bandwith lines and for HTML5 based zero-install clients. Your data will be protected at the same time, as there won’t be any 3D data on your client at any time. Use our Kisters 3DViewStation Desktop or ActiveX products on Windows tablet PCs and work on light-weight or native CAD files. Performance will be incredibly good: on a i5 notebook we load a 5GB Catia V5 assembly in just 1 second as 3DVS-file, on a litte 8 inch Dell with Atom CPU it just takes 3 seconds. Not too bad. And functionality is exactly the same as on your Desktop.

Here are a few impressions.
