Clash detection with 3DViewStation

3DViewStation is a viewing tool suitable not only for dynamic engineering collaboration but also for downstream users who benefit from visualization and understanding of 3D CAD data. With 3DViewStation you can view, analyze, and annotate engineering data for collaboration within your organization and throughout your business supply chain. Import, Export and view data from all major CAD systems such as CATIA V5, NX or ProE/Creo.

Intuitive User Interface

Intuitive handling is one of the basic principles of 3DViewStation. That's why we designed the new UI along the lines of Microsoft Office, adding some intuitive ribbons. The user interface can be adapted to your specific requirements, and a quick access toolbar can be added. Shortcut keys can be defined for frequently used functions.

High performance - your time is money

You need to be able to complete your tasks in a continuous flow, which is why we have ensured that the import interfaces with the various CAD systems function as quickly as possible. And now that 3DViewStation is available in a 64-bit version as well, all previous storage limits have gone out the window. Step on the gas pedal and utilize our internal data format whenever you need maximum performance.

A viewer designed for fast access

A large amount of users look for an intuitive, easy to use application to load 3D CAD data quickly, and for options to measure, slice, and compare components and assemblies quickly and easily. We have done our best to ensure that your work with 3DViewStation is a real pleasure.

Technical documentation and collaboration

Technology editors are always on the lookout for intuitive solutions to map and display products in various states. They need to hide or show parts, color parts, create exploded views. Using the 3DViewStation you simply export the result as an image and integrate it into your work- or assembly instruction. If you prefer communicating your data in 3D, then you will love the export capabilities of 3DViewStation to STEP or 3D PDF.

Integration and automation

Geometries are often managed not just on the tile system, but via ERP, PLM, or other data management systems (e.g. proprietary systems). 3DViewStation comes equipped with a comprehensive programming interface (API) to facilitate any kind of automation. It allows the loading and positioning of geometries, and the comparing or manipulating of their storage location. Via the API, Kisters 3D ViewStation allows the coloring of parts, dynamic builds of structures (e.g. variants and configurations), and the querying of the position and attitude of parts or the forwarding of events to a guiding application, once a part is clicked - e.g. to then search for meta data in PLM or ERP.
