STEP Viewer

STEP Viewers can view STEP files which can have the .stp and .step file extensions. TransMagic’s STEP Viewer will view all types of STEP files, including STEP AP 203, 214 and 242, and can also perform the following tasks: View, zoom, pan, rotate Change color, transparency Measure, dimension, markup Calculate mass properties, surface area, bounding box Show, hide, manage layers Cut sections, create ortho views View PMI, write model and PMI out to 3D PDF TransMagic’s primary viewing product is called SUPERVIEW, and it can also read CATIA, NX, Creo, SOLIDWORKS, Solid Edge, Inventor, AutoCAD, IGES, Parasolid, ACIS and other CAD formats. If you need to write...
CAD Data

CAD Data

This overview of CAD Data focuses on Mechanical CAD (MCAD) applications and industries which have to do with the design and manufacture of products. CAD data can be 2D or 3D, composed of wireframes, surfaces or solids, and represented by polygons or voxels. CAD data can contain underlying spline or analytical geometry, gaps between faces, and formats can be ASCII or binary. It can contain PMI and UDA data, and can output that data to sharable formats such as 3D PDF and WebGL for anyone to view in a 3D viewer. It can be extracted to XML and other formats for analysis to help designers and manufacturers improve products and processes.   2D CAD Data This CAD...

What 8 Tasks Should a CAD Viewer Perform? What should you look for in a CAD Viewer? First and foremost, it should read the files you need to view. But there are other things to consider; check out our list below. View Major CAD Formats. Easily Navigate Parts and Assemblies. View & Manage PMI. See Inside CAD Geometry. Create & Save Views. Dimension, Measure & Calculate. Interrogate Solids. Share the Data with Others.     View Major CAD Formats Being able to view more CAD formats gives you more flexibility in dealing with existing customers, and broadens your ability to pursue new customers. A good CAD viewer will let you: Read CATIA V4 Model,...

Four Threats to Manufacturing On-Time and On-Budget

Four Threats to Manufacturing On-Time and On-Budget

Avoid Million-Dollar Manufacturing Disasters In engineering, something as simple as declaring the wrong unit of measure can create a disaster costing millions of dollars. John Pike, space policy director at the Federation of American Scientists, stated, “It is very difficult for me to imagine how such a fundamental, basic discrepancy could have remained in the system for so long,” regarding the English to Metric units mistake at NASA [1]. Watch the video overview. Article continues below. Four Threats to On-Time and On-Budget Engineering disasters can often be traced back to design errors that creep into downstream manufacturing processes through...
