  • 12-Feb-2016 01:56 EST


KISTERS has released version 2016 of its 3DViewStation Desktop, which features modern user-interface, high-performance 3D-viewing, advanced analysis, and digital mockup (DMU). 3DViewStation ships with current and mature CAD-importers for a range of formats including Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, JT, 3D-PDF, and STEP, plus a set of functional tools to view, analyze, and communicate 3D-data as STEP, JT, or 3D-PDF. The development focus for 3DViewStation Desktop V2016 has been to further optimize the handling of extremely large assemblies and enhancements of the analysis functions. The graphics kernel, which is a KISTERS development, has been optimized to cut down load times by 50% in 3DVS file format and to reduce memory usage by 60-70%. The size of 3DVS files also has been reduced by 20-30%. Other new features of 3DViewStation can be reviewed at http://blog.kisters.de.
