Newport Beach, California – The developers of vueCAD® announced this week that version 4.0 of their iPad app is now available through the Apple App Store. Users everywhere will no longer have to deal with large computer workstations or carry laptops to display and demonstrate their 3D projects. Version 4.0 builds upon the success of vueCAD®, with improvements including:
Version 4.0 also includes new functionality for exploding a model, point-to-point measurement, a tree-view with the ability to turn on/off sub-assemblies and parts within a model, and full support for color, transparency and textures.
Version 4.0 adds SolidWorks and Unigraphics importers (available as in-app purchases) to the long list of file formats supported by vueCAD® including STEP, JT, IGES, Catia, Pro/E, SolidEdge, VDA, ACIS, Parasolids and tessellated mesh formats.
Version 4.0 includes support for large assemblies and large part files.
- Explode — use 3 fingers in the graphics (move in/out) to visually separate components and subassemblies.
- Measure — select two points to measure the distance between them.
- Tree View — the info button opens a dialog listing the size of the model and all of the parts and components. Each part or subassembly can be turned on/off.
“The power of vueCAD is its underlying CAD engine which makes possible native CAD import on the mobile device. vueCAD was designed as a foundation platform for a suite of mobile software solutions from design to manufacturing to quality control,” said Frank Ruotolo, president of Titansan Engineering Inc. “Since the product’s initial release, we’ve found additional success with vueCAD embedded as a component within our partners’ solutions. Our most prominent partnership is the Eaton PowerSource app with vueCAD at its core.”
