Right Hemisphere (Pleasanton, CA) announced the pricing of its new Deep Exploration 5.5 client software as well as the immediate availability of its free, standalone 2D and 3D graphics viewing application, Deep View 5.5, which can embed product data directly into industry standard document formats such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, and Excel, or one click publish to Adobe PDF.
Introduced in April, Deep Exploration 5.5 offers advanced support for the creation and output of real-time 3D manufacturing instructions. The software also offers several new licensing options, user interface enhancements for improved ease of use and workflows, and new technical illustration capabilities. Content generated by Deep Exploration 5.5 will require an upgrade to Deep View 5.5 to take advantage of the new output features.
Deep Exploration 5.5 is available in two versions: Deep Exploration CAD Edition, which includes translators to import computer-aided design (CAD) data, and Deep Exploration Standard Edition, which does not.
However, Deep Exploration Standard Edition now supports advanced editing and output functionality previously only available in the CAD Edition. Manufacturers who have implemented Right Hemisphere’s Deep Server enterprise software, which includes CAD format translation capabilities, can opt to purchase the lower-cost Standard Edition to fully address their downstream document production needs.
Right Hemisphere offers multiple subscription licensing options as well as discounted pricing for existing customers who are upgrading to Deep Exploration 5.5.
