3D Viewer

The 3D Viewer allows you to interactively view 3D models and drawings. Rotate, pan, and zoom 3D CAD models, and save images and email them as needed to provide an efficient collaborative process among your team, your customers, and your suppliers. The 3D Viewer is easy to download and install, and allows you to open and view assembly, part, and draft files.

Dynamic 3D Display Without CAD System

In 3D Scene Creation, the object can be rotated and can be visible form any angle. From any angle – top, bottom, front, back, right or left – You get a full-fledged view of the object.

  • Show CAD shape (STEP, IGES, etc.) as BSON file.
  • Create simple solids, custom shapes and polylines via JavaScript. Combine multiple shapes in one scene.
  • Load or export a scene definition using JSON scene format.
  • Extend 3D scene with custom interactive actors using auxiliary Three.js renderer.
  • Move, rotate assembly and its component parts
  • Show/hide, assign display properties to a shape.
  • Measurements are possible (House length, window width)

    There are 2 types of measurements – Point to point (associated with length) and Angle (associated with degrees).

    • Object can be torn apart and each component can be explored and changed thoroughly.
    • 3 views are available – Orbit (360-degree view is available.), Walk Through (shows how the building will look to a human eye from a particular distance and spot), and Plain View (which converts object in 2D).
  • Facility of annotations. – Click at any angle and add notes for clear instructions and communications. At every angle the notes will stay so there would be more clarity on the changes required.
  • Customize ground elevation sources, if you are from Civil Engineering Infrastructure industry.
  • You can also add your own custom elevation surfaces and use them to derive other z-values for features or for specific analyses.
  • Interactive feature selection involves selecting features that are completely contained by the selection shape.
  • Pick or select complete assembly or a (sub) shape: face, edge (curve), vertex (point). You can select a part and make the changes and editing on the same exclusively.
  • Single or additive selection. Incremental selection by selecting parent entity (and all children) by double-clicks.
  • Filter selection by geometry types: planar, circular, cylindrical, spherical (surfaces), line, circular (curves), etc.
  • Control state of selection programmatically: set/clear selection, disable selection, change selection modes, etc.
  • Get entity’s identifier, point, surface normal from the selection result. Change selection color, highlighting color and state of interactive highlighting.

  • Facility of annotations. – Click at any angle and add notes for clear instructions and communications. At every angle the notes will stay so there would be more clarity on the changes required.
  • Sectioning – You can tear or cut an object, take out a part for eg, a wall and make the desired changes. You can clearly view the interiors and can make changes and modify minute detailing.
  • Exploding – This is next level sectioning where each parts get detached from the fixing and you can see the whole object minutely. For eg, a table can be exploded in one base and 4 legs.
  • Set up multiple clipping planes.
  • Real-time shaded section rendering with hatch.
  • Exploding a model against local origin point.
  • The ability to divide edges and faces enables you to create and manipulate your geometry in complex ways.

  • Animated camera transition.
  • Includes editors and viewers for rendering and interacting with virtual scenes. Import CAD and URDF file formats as well as author detailed scenes assembled from 3D objects.
  • The 3D world can be viewed immersively using stereoscopic vision – This feature can be ideal for Railway Transport Manufacturing industry.

The undo function is used to reverse a mistake, such as deleting the wrong word in a sentence. The redo function restores any actions that were previously undone using an undo.

  • Undo/redo editing interactive object positions and rotation.
  • Resetting scene to an initial state.
  • The “Undo” is a function for cancelling the operation that was just performed and returns you to the previous status.
  • The “Redo” is a function for re-executing the operation that was undone using the “Undo” function.
  • A tetrahedron is a three-dimensional shape that has four triangular faces. It has a triangular base and thus it is also referred to as a triangular pyramid.
  • 3D trihedron is drawn in a standard position (top-left corner) in overlay of 3D shapes. It can be turned on/off.
A snapshot is the state of a system at a particular point in time. The term was coined as an analogy to that in photography.
  • Snapshot can be made for the current 3D view.
  • 3D View snapshots are like “bookmarks” of individual states of your current 3D View; they enable you to capture and return to a favourite location, or state, of a view quickly and easily.
  • You can create a number of snapshots that will save the viewing angle and location, the 3D View extents and display settings, as well as the 3D groups visibility, transparency and clipping settings.
