KISTERS 3DViewStation - Textures for More Realistic Renderings

True-to-life visualization for professional presentations and configurators

Sacramento, CA – June 1st, 2021 – A picture is worth a thousand words, and this is particularly true for areas where the most realistic possible representation is important, such as presentations, catalogs or virtual reality. Using 3D visualization that looks as real as possible, a company can ensure it will stand out above the competition with its potential customers.

“With the current release, KISTERS 3DViewStation 2021 now supports textures in addition to a wide range of materials to make product visualization even more attractive,” said Jim Eardly, U.S. Sales Director for KISTERS. “With the newly integrated textures, CAD models appear more detailed and vivid.”

The photo-realistic surfaces enhance the aesthetic impression of 3D objects and add value to any design. This gives tomorrow's customers a vivid idea of how products are built and will appear more realistically integrated in the real world. The entire product family supports reading of OBJ, FBX, GLB/GLTF, DAE, U3D, 3DVS and 3MF file formats. Saving in 3DVS file format is also possible.

KISTERS 3DViewStation raises product visualizations to a whole new level. Marketing and sales departments will benefit in the future from 3D configurators whose textures will greatly enhance the design of their products, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Catalogs and product configurators in particular, benefit from the realistic representation. This gives customers a realistic impression of their final product as early as the design phase and leads to increased customer acceptance and sales growth.

With the KISTERS 3DViewStation, it is possible to reduce the number of expensive CAD licenses to a minimum. Featuring a lower training threshold and a much lower cost, KISTERS 3DViewStation allows more employees to be easily integrated into the product workflow. This leads to more efficiency, time savings and error prevention.

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.
