The CAD-Viewer and Converter from 3D-Tool has useful tools to analyze 3D models without CAD knowledge. At the push of a button, 3D-Tool provides the dimensions, the surface area and the volume for all parts of a model. Distances, angles and radii can be measured with simple mouse clicks.
Easy-to-use measure tools
Moving the cursor automatically highlights measurement references, so that multiple 3D dimensions can be created with simple mouse clicks.
To create exploded views, the parts of a 3D model can be exploded automatically in the X, Y, and Z direction, or moved and rotated manually into position.
Dynamic cross section
The section plane can be aligned parallel to surfaces and perpendicular to curves or can be placed and rotated freely. Parts of the 3D model can be excluded from the cross section.
For the evaluation of molded parts in tool making, drafts and undercuts are displayed in different colors. In order to estimate the clamping forces for molded parts the projected area is calculated.
By superimposing two plain-colored models special color effects help to locate differences between the models.
2D DWG/DXF Viewer
3D-Tool also opens DWG and DXF drawings. The 2D viewer features 2D measurement tools, redline markups, as well as tools to edit drawing elements.
