EDGECAM WORKXPLORE – Native CAD Viewer

EDGECAM WORKXPLORE is the ideal tool for directly displaying and evaluating 3D CAD files without the need for the original CAD application. The intuitive, easy-to-use interface enables novice and experienced users alike to explore any type of 2D/3D CAD file.

A wide range of CAD interfaces are available: Catia V5, Catia V4, Unigraphics, Parasolid, Pro/E, SolidWorks, Solid Edge, Cadds, IGES, STEP, Unisurf, STL (binary and ASCII), VRML, ISO toolpaths, DXF, DWG, HPGL.  It is possible to load GD&T data from the CAD interfaces that support geometric tolerancing.

The software saves the native CAD data in its own lightweight format enabling users to calculate surface areas and volumes, measure thickness, dimensions, and angles and much more without requiring the original CAD data.  This lightweight format can be easily transmitted to other project members via email.

Measurements: EDGECAM WORKXPLORE features a wide range of 2D and 3D measurement functions that are highly accurate due to the high precision B-rep 3D model employed.

Annotation: EDGECAM WORKXPLORE offers a wide range of annotation functions. Users can convey their ideas, observations, instructions and change requests easily and quickly.

Analyse: EDGECAM WORKXPLORE comes with a full range of specialist analysis tools which can be used to help make quotes, diagnostics, assembly notes or for 3D models production preparation.

Animation: EDGECAM WORKXPLORE includes a fully functional animation kernel allowing users to generate exploded views or animated assembly movements. Setting up animations is achieved by simply initiating basic movements such as translation, rotation or following a guide curve.

Interference Detection: Dynamic collision analysis functions can be used during animations to carry out real time control of mechanism interoperability or process control.

Documentation: With EDGECAM WORKXPLORE users can generate screen captures to illustrate technical documents and assembly sheets.  In addition to the traditional screen capture functions, the software features an image collector which also allows users to easily manage and distribute large volumes of images.

Publication: EDGECAM WORKXPLORE allows users to easily share their CAD models throughout the entire design and manufacturing chain, with all project members whether they are product managers, marketing, sales, outside manufacturing consultants, customers or suppliers.
