WorkXplore, Vero Software’s high-speed CAD viewer and analyzer, imports files in batches and analyzes all file types and sizes at high speed.
Batch Converter is an application in the WorkXplore 2018 R1 suite that allows batches of CAD files to be converted to the WorkXplore format instead of converting them one at a time. Once launched, it does not require any user intervention, other than to check the current conversion status.
Another functionality feature includes the support for 4K screens. Luca Clerici, WorkXplore product owner says, “As this kind of monitor is becoming more widely available, we’ve ensured that the system works efficiently on 4K laptop screens and external monitors.
“We’ve also improved the software’s powerful client viewer. The tool already enabled users to communicate 3D parts and assemblies to sub-contractors, customers or colleagues via the Internet, through a stand-alone lightweight application. Now, they can also export GD&T data with the solid model.”
An additional STEP reader translator option allows users to choose between the faster in-house integrated import library and the slower, but higher quality Datakit converter.
The release also continues WorkXplore’s tradition of including updated format support for translators. Among the 25 reader and writer formats now fully supported include Catia V6, Creo, Inventor, Parasolid, Rhino, SolidWorks, STEP, DXF, IGES, and 3D PDF.
An option added in Parameters allows detection of multiple meshes while importing STL files.
Clerici concludes, “Overall, the new and enhanced items of functionality in WorkXplore 2018 R1 save users more time and improves their ability to perform part diagnostics, create assembly instructions, and prepare the production of 3D models.”
