The CoreTechnologie 3D Analyzer Viewer is now available through a mobile license-lending feature.

The powerful 3D Analyzer Viewer of the German-French software manufacturer CoreTechnologie (CT) comprises in the current version 4.3 a
new license-borrowing function that allows to use the software for a limited time for example on a laptop. Already the inexpensive basic version of 3D Analyzer includes 24 different interface formats, such as CATIA V5/V6, NX, Inventor SolidWorks, Creo, STEP, JT as well as FBX and OBJ. In addition, the new version also reads major 2D drawing formats.

Outstanding Analysis Capabilities
The 3D Analyzer professional version of the Viewer provides outstanding analysis capabilities that are usually available only in much more expensive CAD systems. For assemblies, the model comparison as well as a collision and clearance check are available. Models can also be analyzed for wall thicknesses, draft angles, undercuts and projected areas. Thus, the Viewer is the ideal tool for users who sometimes use
a CAD system for viewing and detailed analysis, but in general do not design or edit the parts. The flexible viewer helps to relax the license utilization of expensive CAD licenses and thus significantly reduces costs. A special highlight of the professional

Viewer is the possibility to save all imported CAD models as JT or 3D PDF files.

Advanced 3D Master Technology
The future-oriented version 4.3 of the 3D Analyzer fully supports the advanced 3D master technology. Thus CAD models from V5, NX and Creo as well as from STEP AP 242 and JT can be read including dimensions, tolerances as well as the predefined views, so-called captures. The use of the 3D Master eliminates the need for 2D drawings, since in the 3D model all information relevant for production is available and combined by means of the different captures. Among other things, intelligent 3D master models enable paperless production and avoid differences between 3D and 2D data. The clever technology is currently gaining importance for the integrated production process in the context of Industry 4.0. With the 3D Analyzer Viewer, 3D master models can also be used on lightweight, costeffective tablets.
