3D-Tool (Heddesheim, Germany) simplifies and speeds up the analysis, presentation, and communication of CAD data, with the 3D-Tool V 8 viewer that dynamically displays CAD models in 3D and 2D. Complete projects can be saved into one compact EXE-File, which can be sent via e-mail.
3D-Tool eases the coordination inside the project team or with other parties such as customers and suppliers: The recipient doesn’t need an expensive CAD system or 3D-Tool licenses to view the models. The EXE-Files contain the viewer and the data and need no further installation to start up. The intuitive interface allows a close examination of the design without special CAD skills.
Besides the many 3D formats, such as STEP, IGS, VDA, SAT, PARASOLID, STL, SLP, VRML and 3DS, ,3D-Tool also supports 2D formats like DXF, DWG and HPGL — enabling it to be used in combination with most mechanical CAD systems like Pro/Engineer, CATIA, Unigraphics, Solid Edge, SolidWorks, AutoCAD, and Autodesk Inventor.
Version 8.0 can be evaluated for 14 days, unrestricted and without obligation, after requesting a free Trial Key. It is downloadable from 3D-Tool.
