Our expertise in CAD visualization

  • Responsive to customer needs & requirements

    We listen to suppliers & OEMs for single parts & large assemblies.

    Responsive to customer needs & requirements

    We listen to suppliers and OEMs for single parts & large assemblies. We work with designers, engineers, die casting and injection molding technicians. We continuously enhance the 3DViewStation product portfolio in response to customer needs and requirements.

    Most often users only want fast loading (in seconds), the ability to dimension, section and possibly calculate volume or surface. However, some users need to do more demanding analysis to avoid production errors and delays. Advanced analysis & annotation tools are available in the mobile-friendly 3DViewStation WebViewer to keep projects on schedule.
    Moreover, WebViewer does not install an app or transfer assembly or documents to the device, protecting intellectual property (IP).

    In addition, the MultiCAD-enabled VisShare collaboration environment can help build understanding and consensus among internal and external project team members.

    Multifaceted tools & rich functionality within budget

    The 3DViewStation team is intrapreneurial. We’re proactive, action-oriented people who acknowledge constraints but also achieve success. Likewise we’ll give you what you need to get your job done: extensive functionalities, speed, and flexibility to suit your specific requirements.

    Our solutions handle any data formats – native or neutral – 2D drawings, 3D CAD data, Office documents, images and more. 3DViewStation enables users to compare 2D drawings and 3D CAD models. It’s as easy as opening one file, dragging & dropping the second file, and clicking a button. Differences or deviations are displayed using (false) colors, selected by the user. A number of comparison functions can be applied. While one comparison is active, you can simultaneously cut and/or measure the 3D model – and save each state of analysis as a view.

    After benchmarking leading CAD viewing solutions, several automotive and commercial truck manufacturers adopt KISTERS solution to reduce costs of CAD licenses as designs are accessed across its enterprise. From manufacturing cost estimation and quoting to quality assurance, from technical documentation to marketing – many users who don’t require CAD skills or time-consuming training in complex software have a more intuitive and affordable application.
