3DViewStation Saves on CAD License Cost

The KISTERS 3DViewStation demonstrates at its customer Yanfeng that they don’t always have to purchase an expensive CAD license. In the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and aviation industries, CAD data is crucial and plays a key role in a variety of downstream tasks in the process chain. From designing individual parts to constructing large assemblies, CAD data supports companies in conducting measurements, creating technical publications and work instructions, and many other important tasks. However, a CAD license is not necessarily required for these tasks.

The prerequisite for saving on the cost of CAD licenses is having the right tool. This is where the KISTERS 3DViewStation comes into play: The powerful multi-CAD viewer is tailored to the needs of the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and aviation industries. Small suppliers, medium-sized component manufacturers, and even large OEMs rely on the software solution to quickly and reliably load, inspect, and prepare native 3D CAD data from major systems such as Catia, Creo / ProEngineer, NX, Solidworks. In addition to neutral formats such as JT, and STEP for subsequent processes.

With the KISTERS 3DViewStation, CAD data can be shared cost-effectively, and the entire team has the opportunity to access it easily. This solution offers a user-friendly interface and the flexibility needed to view, measure, mark, and export native CATIA and NX files.

3DViewStation prides itself on the ability to offer over 180 functions, including measuring, dimensioning, sectioning, as well as more sophisticated analyses such as projected area, clash detection and wall thickness analysis. It is clear that 3DViewStation is on par with any major CAD license. Whether as a desktop version, WebViewer, or VR edition, it allows significant cost savings without compromising on quality or accuracy and is much faster and easier to use than a CAD system.

“Our software can do so much more than just viewing, and through close collaboration with our customers, we continuously develop it to perfectly meet the specific needs of each industry,” says Germar Nikol, Director Visualization Technologies at KISTERS AG.
