Geometric announced the launch of version 3.0 of Glovius for Windows, an extensible and customizable 3D visualization tool for consumption of product design data.
Popular CAD formats like CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER, NX and SolidWorks can now be imported with full support for product manufacturing information (PMI), attributes, metadata and model views (also known as captures in CATIA V5). Files open twice as fast, and use less memory and disk space, the company says. Measurement and sectioning are also faster.
Glovius for Windows is a free JT viewer with an add-on and extensible architecture. File importer add-ons are available for CATIA V5, Pro/ENGINEER, NX, SolidWorks, Inventor and STEP/IGES/STL formats. Feature-based add-ons are available for taking linear, angular and radial measurements; taking sections with multiple section planes; searching and filtering PMI information; adding notes and markups; viewing model views; and searching attributes and metadata.
Glovius mobile apps are available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Users can export models from the Glovius desktop viewer and transfer them to the mobile apps using iTunes or a USB cable. Alternatively, users can upload models on Babel3D.com, a cloud based translation and visualization engine, to sync models with mobile apps.
