  • Intuitive User Interface
    Engineers and designers rank the intuitive UI as one of the best. The modern UI and ribbon framework provide great convenience, especially when handling extremely large assemblies and enhanced analyses. Users can define shortcut keys and add a quick access toolbar.
  • Innovative Analytical Tools
    Beyond measurement and slicing, access a 3D comparison function and true MultiCAD digital mockup (DMU) processes.

  • Automation and Integration API
    Manage geometries on the tile system or via proprietary systems such as ERP, PLM or other data management systems. A complete programming interface automates and integrates components and assemblies. Load and position geometries. Compare or manipulate storage locations. Query the position and attitude of parts or forwarding of events to a guiding application.


  • Efficient Process Management
    Save time and costs by integrating and completing tasks in a continuous flow with this single application. For example the DMU process allows users to simultaneously load and analyze data from different CAD systems without conversion. Read how Siemens Active Workspace is enhanced by 3DViewStation.

  • Enhanced Collaboration
    Technical editors appreciate new capabilities to map and display products in various stages of product development: Hide or show parts. Apply color coding. Create exploded views. 3DViewStation empowers editors to easily export work as image files for placement in work- or assembly instruction. Export capabilities include STEP and 3D PDF options.   

  • Effective Cost Management
    3DViewStation equips various stakeholders with powerful, yet essential tools rather than overwhelm and over-charge them for unnecessary features. Eliminate purchase of multiple and expensive imaging software licenses. Minimize the cost of purchasing & maintaining servers when you take advantage of the hosted solution.
