CAD Visualisation integration in Aras Innovator

3DViewStation integrates with Aras Innovator. Synergy occurs between metadata search tools or structural information via the Aras Innovator client mask and the 3DviewStation geometry visualization and analysis features.

Users do not just want to read textual descriptions of a product - they want to be able to see the 3D rendering of the product, and that very quickly. This is where the integration of 3DViewStation makes sense. Aras Innovator users can work with a next-generation CAD visualizer, enabling quick visualization of even the largest CAD data. 3DViewStation can read all versions of major CAD systems such as CATIA V5, Creo, NX, Inventor and others.

One of the user modes is to integrate 3DViewStation into the Aras Innovator user interface, leveraging its high-performance 3D viewing capabilities, allowing users to view assemblies of multiple GBs in seconds. The second user mode is to open the CAD data directly in the 3DViewStation application (Desktop or WebViewer) providing access to all advanced analysis tools. A very important function is the geometric comparison of two assemblies - say two versions of the same product. With 3DViewStation, the differences are easily identifiable and you can quickly make important decisions. 3DViewStation is controlled via the user interface of Aras Innovator. All required files are at the version comparison are loaded automatically.
