HCL Glovius 6.0 has been launched with further functionalities for viewing and comparison of 3D CAD data across multiple platforms.
Glovius is a multi-platform visualisation solution that allows access to 3D CAD data on Windows, Cloud, iOS, and Android apps.
The latest release supports all popular CAD formats, including Dassault Systèmes Catia and Solidworks; Siemens NX and SolidEdge; PTC Creo and Pro/Engineer; Autodesk Inventor and STEP, IGES, and JT files.
HCL Glovius enables users to measure, section, analyse, compare, and export 3D CAD data to STEP, IGES, and other formats.
HCL says that the new rendering engine in Glovius 6.0 significantly improves file open and rendering performance, resulting in improved visualisation and responsiveness.
The latest release improves picking and rendering of measurements, allowing users to measure STL, CGR, and other graphics file formats.
Additionally, Glovius 6.0 features an improved export option with WYSIWYG enhancements, allowing users to export files as image snapshots, PowerPoint, 3DHTML, 3DPDF, and Bill of Materials (BoM) for easy sharing and collaboration.
IP protection is also a consideration, with product design data able to be selectively exported as components in an assembly.
“Working remotely, teams can seamlessly collaborate across screens with comments, email and markup on the latest 3D product data, accelerating the product development process,” said a HCL spokesperson, adding: “Glovius for iOS and Android provides a simple and easy way to view, showcase, and collaborate on 3D CAD parts and assemblies on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.”
Glovius mobile apps allow users to view 3D parts and assemblies from popular CAD formats, analyse CAD components, run reports, and collaborate with others.
