We are the graphics of the new product configurator at DAF trucks. The solution has been nominated for a technology award. And we are proud to announce, that we won in the category "Digital Innovation Of The Year". See also press release on DAF web site.

New analysis function: recognition of drill holes

29-08-18gnikol

Find below an impression of a new analysis function, our drill hole recognition. This function just needs tesselation of a geometry and will try to recognize drill holes first plus will compute a set of parameters afterwards.

20-08-18gnikol

We are working on a new dialog for the 3DViewStation Desktop product, which should help to quickly choose the most important setting when loading native 3D CAD files. You might have seen this with our WebViewer version before already.

Preview: new option to mirror objects

14-05-18gnikol

We will introduce a new option to mirror objects: you can now determine one face of the bounding box, which will be used for mirroring. The mirrored object(s) will then be moved to that face.

Preview: formatting text files

11-05-18gnikol

3DViewStation also supports 2D file formats, incl. text files. These text files frequently are generated automatically, without any layout. We now added settings to specify i.e. paper size, borders etc. in order to format such text files on screen.  

Problem caused by Microsoft Spring Update for Windows 10 - please update to v2018.0!

09-05-18gnikol

Unfortunately with v2017.1 we have problems reading DWG, DXF, DGN files. The problem is caused by the latest  Microsoft Spring Update for Windows 10. 
Please update to v2018.0 and the problem will be resolved.

Preview: heal data - generate wires

09-05-18gnikol

We typically need to view and measure all data which we get. To be able to measure on data we need wires. But sometimes there are no wires at all or the quality of the wires is so poor, that we cannot do any measurements. To solve this problem 3DViewStation now allows to remove existing wires and to generate them again.

Preview: measure wallthickness in real time

09-05-18gnikol

Our wallthickness calculation has become that fast, that we are now able to provide a real time measurement function for the method "rolling ball". Have a look:

Preview: scale objects interactively

08-05-18gnikol

Now you can scale objects interactively - so far this was possible via API only. An impression:

Preview: optimize instances - reduce file size

07-05-18gnikol

in the upcoming release we will auomatically recognize instances, which will result in smaller files and faster load times. You might see significant advantages with large assemblies.
