Automation Server is a server-based solution for the automated batch processing of 3D data. Automation Server can be integrated with any leading systems, like PDM systems or SAP. Standard tasks: 3D conversion & preview image generation. Automation Server covers a broad spectrum of usage scenarios. PDM system-controlled conversions of native 3D CAD assemblies to the internal 3DViewStation format 3DVS, to 3D-PDF or STEP form the basis of its functionality. And Automation Server processes all tasks with the same high speed and reliability we have come to expect from 3DViewStation.
The use of thumbnails as preview images for result lists in PLM systems makes much more sense than rendering entire 3D models. These preview images are seamlessly generated as a Automation Server background task.
