WorkXplore Now Converts CAD Files in Batches



WorkXplore software was created to efficiently import and analyze all file types and sizes at high speed. It often takes less than half the time to open a file compared to the original CAD application, and this new batch-converter function is designed to speed up the overall process even more.

Batch Converter is a new application unveiled in the WorkXplore 2018 R1 suite that allows batches of CAD files to be converted to the WorkXplore format instead of having to convert them one at a time. Once launched, it does not require any user intervention, other than to check the current conversion status.

Other items of new and enhanced functionality include support for 4K screens. WorkXplore product owner Luca Clerici said, "As this kind of monitor is becoming more widely available, we have ensured that the system works efficiently on 4K laptop screens and external monitors.

"We have also improved the software's powerful Client Viewer. The tool already enabled users to communicate 3-D parts and assemblies to sub-contractors, customers or colleagues via the internet, through a stand-alone lightweight application. Now, they can also export GD&T data with the solid model."

An additional STEP reader translator option has been introduced in WorkXplore 2018 R1, which allows users to choose between the faster in-house integrated import library and the slower, but higher quality, Datakit converter.

The new release also continues WorkXplore's long tradition of including updated format support for translators. Among the 25 reader and writer formats now fully supported are Catia V6, Creo, Inventor, Parasolid, Rhino, SolidWorks, STEP, DXF, IGES and 3d PDF.

A new option has been added in Parameters to allow the detection of multiple meshes while importing STL files. "This was included because a lot of time can be spent working with large meshes. By simply asking Information on the mesh, the system shows the number of shells contained in the model."

Clerici concluded, "Overall, the new and enhanced items of functionality in WorkXplore 2018 R1 save users more time and improve their ability to perform part diagnostics, create assembly instructions and prepare the production of 3-D models."
