KISTERS has announced release 12.0 of its 3DViewStation, which ships with an Office 2010 compliant user interface. Load times have been improved, according to the company, and most assemblies load in just a few seconds.
The NX-import level has been raised to v8.5, and the company has introduced Rhino import as well as exporters for JT and VRML. At the functional level, section planes can now be defined not only by the active coordinate system but also by clicking on a face of an object. A new selection method has been added to the filtering tool: the user now can filter by object type, i.e., by PMI, construction plane or wireframe object. Filtering by color now allows the selection of objects of several colors at the same time.
It is available in both Desktop and ActiveX product-versions, 32-bit and 64-bit. The ActiveX integration component is intended to be used together with a PLM- or other management system. All file formats can be used in combination with the intelligent navigation- and hyperlinking features to address needs of complex integration scenarios. There are seat and floating licenses available.
