Tubes measurement in 3DViewStation

When designing tubes, it's crucial to measure the neutral axes to ensure both efficient and safe use. 3DViewStation offers a "neutral axis" feature, also referred to as "neutral fiber," that can automatically recognize tubes, even on tessellated geometries, and calculate a set of parameters to measure their neutral axes.

Comprehensive Measurement Tools in 3DViewStation

3DViewStation provides a plethora of measurement tools for 3D model visualization. Users can accurately and effortlessly measure distances, angles, areas, and volumes. Additionally, 3DViewStation supports an extensive array of 3D file formats, such as CATIA, NX, SolidWorks, Creo, STEP, IGES, and many others. As a result, users can view and measure 3D models from various sources without the need to convert files or possess knowledge about the originating design software.

Advanced Neutral Axis Detection

The "neutral axis" feature of 3DViewStation employs an intricate algorithm to detect tubes and measure their diameter and length. Once the tubes are identified, users can seamlessly view the results either through a screenshot or by using the integrated measurement function.
