3D CAD Viewer Offers Higher Efficiency to Communicate Engineering Data

More accurate Imported Catia 2D Drawing

More visual-friendly dimensions and the dimension display options

The online section view with shape outlines

Online linear dimension annotation

Auto Dimension in 2D drawing

ZWSOFT has launched CADbro 2019 SP, a full-featured 3D CAD viewer designed to achieve better user experience, especially in 2D and 3D CAD data exchange for easier idea sharing and communicating.

"Collaboration is a key process of designing and manufacturing," said a company spokesperson. "Besides the R&D team, other departments of a sales or purchase team also need a handy tool to acquire necessary information through model checking, dimension measurement and manufacturability verification. CADbro 2019 SP introduces new capabilities to meet collaboration needs."

Among various 3D CAD viewer solutions, CADbro can read Catia/SOLIDWORKS 2D drawings. More line types can be recognized and more types of dimensions are supported. The import accuracy of view transformation and text information (e.g., multiline text) has also been enhanced.

Since the release of CADbro 2019, Cloud service is a key field to increase user experience. In 2019 SP version, HTML format has been improved in display effect and management. For example, the dimensions will always be displayed with its front towards the user, and the ones far away will be displayed as semi-transparent, enabling the user to view the dimensions more clearly. Users can also choose which dimension to be displayed via the navigator on the left side.

With section view, users can choose whether to display the shape outlines by the switch at the top-right setting. By turning on the shape outlines, users can view models with higher clarity.

A user can add linear dimensions to models on the Cloud, demonstrating products anytime and anywhere with more details.

"Imagine that when thousands of components are waiting for you to annotate, how much time and energy it will take. In CADbro 2019 SP, Auto Dimension is supported, saving time," said the spokesperson. Different types of dimensions, including linear dimension, radial/diametric dimension and hole dimension, can be generated for the selected entities or entire entities from a specific view. Moreover, inheriting PMI is now supported in 2D drawing.

There are also a number of smaller enhancements for smoother operation. For instance, the rule of viewer manager has been optimized. Users can now easily toggle the transparency of entities with the right-click menu.
