KISTERS 3DViewStation WebViewer gives authorized users instant access to any geometry simply by using their cellphone, tablet or notebook PC. When using KISTERS WebViewer, there is no need to download the data or carry it around.
3DViewStation WebViewer gives the ability to instantly load native CAD data from various sources like: Catia, NX, Creo, Inventor, Solidworks, Revit and others. WebViewer only needs a browser and an internet connection; users can leverage their notebook PCs, tablets and smartphones to access the CAD data.
The CAD data is never transferred to the device; it is simply accessed. After authentication, the user can review the CAD model or technical drawing, analyze the problem and discuss it remotely. KISTERS 3DViewStation WebViewer offers more than 180 interactive functions that can be used for review and inspection within the browser.
KISTERS 3DViewStation WebViewer supports two access approaches: integrated with a data management solution or independent. When using it in an integrated environment, the user logs into the system or portal, searches for the data and loads the CAD model into a session. The model is displayed in an embedded window of the system or in a separate browser that contains Kisters' user interface.
After authentication, users who operate 3DViewStation WebViewer independently are able to browse the file system of his or her server as if they were using a Windows file explorer. The models are never downloaded to the client and never stored on or loaded from the client.
3DViewStation ships with current and mature importers for a broad range of 3D and 2D formats including Catia, NX, Creo, SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, Revit, JT, 3D-PDF, STEP, DWG, DXF, DWF, MS Office and more.
KISTERS 3DViewStation is enhanced in response to customer needs and requirements. It is available as Desktop, ActiveX, VR-Edition and HTML5 WebViewer product versions. All products are intended to be used together with a PLM, ERP or other management system product configuration or service and spare part applications, providing all necessary APIs.
For cloud, portal and web-solutions, there is an HTML5-based WebViewer solution available, which does not require client installation. All file formats can be used in combination with the intelligent navigation and hyperlinking features to address the needs of complex integration scenarios.
