3DViewStation AX is an ActiveX component based on our 3DViewStation, develped based on requirements of our customers. 3DViewStation is a native 3D CAD viewer, Office viewer and image viewer for integration as a system component on the one hand, and a 3D viewer with all capabilities you will ever need for visual navigation on the other.

Application scenarios: Integrated 3D viewer, 2D viewer for drawings, Office documents and images for xMS and PLM systems for 3D viewing in role-based PLM clients for e.g. engineering, sales, manufacture, and quality assurance but also for 2D viewing in arbitrary applications incl. CMS. For use with Windows desktops, notebooks, and tablet PCs.

3DViewStation AX

Scenarios and Details

Visual navigation – Speed & reliability for your business processes

No matter what your role within the company - you will have all the information you need at your fingertips. No more time-consuming searches for information on a specific part via text-based search masks. All the latest information is now provided via hyperlinks, which means you simply click on the part.

Visual navigation may also include a visual presentation of results, e.g. the filtering or coloring of all parts manufactured from material X, or that are supplied by provider Y.

Performance & MultiCAD DMU

3DViewStation AX is a high-performance 3DViewer component, i.e. an integrated CAD viewer for native formats like Catia V5, Catia V4, NX, CreoElements/Pro-Engineer, SolidWorks, Inventor, SolidEdge, Parasolid and neutral formats like STEP, 3D-PDF, JT. It offers actual MultiCAD-DMU, i.e. data from a variety of CAD systems can be loaded together and analyzed without conversion. 3DViewStation also supports several 2D file formats such as DWG, DXF, Gerber, Office and PDF, which can be i.e. compared or redacted using markups using the APIs provided.

Role-based PLM clients

The combination of a native-viewer component with the capabilities of visual navigation allows the inclusion of role-based PLM clients. Depending on your role and function in your enterprise or the process you are working on, distinct and relevantly adapted viewer component behavior can be implemented.

Information becomes readily available, access is significantly faster than before, and user error is eliminated entirely, which can so often happen when entering a product ID into a text-based search mask.
