Sescoi has released Version 3 of WorkXPlore 3D, its high-speed CAD viewer, mark-up and analysis software.
WorkXPlore 3D imports models from a wide range of CAD packages and makes it possible to analyze, interrogate and make comments on extremely large files. New import and export capabilities in the latest version of the software include STEP and IGES export, and JT and Autodesk Inventor import.
Version 3 is a major release using Brep technology for higher accuracy and the ability to stitch together discontinuities in the geometry of forms such as cylinders, toroids and cones, producing advantages in volume calculations, draft angle checking and edge detection, the company says.
64-bit technology increases speed of operation, while recognition of edges and faces intelligently interprets CAD data, enabling models and STL files to be imported and rationalized into entities that can be measured and analyzed. New dimensioning functions allow the positioning of text and the ability to find items such as mid and center points along the wire frame geometry.
Further enhancements include the ability to open several models in the same WorkXPlore 3D session, apply compound transformations to imported geometry, and display different types of surface such as concave, convex, planar and cylindrical.
