Vispower Technology announces 3DFile.io supports online DWG viewing along with Markup Tools

3Dfile.io showcases how the cloud solutions can help them work effectively with almost zero upfront costs

7/25/2012

Vispower Technology today announced the free online 3D model sharing and visualization service, 3Dfile.io (BETA), now supports online 2D DWG and DXF visualization using the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Web standard along with an easy-to-use markup tool. These features are supported on all modern Web browsers including PC, Mac, and Mobile Devices.

*2D DWG, DXF Vector Drawing Support

*Markup Suite for Collaborative Online Annotations on 2D Drawings

*PC, Mac and Mobile Support

Says CEO Simon Bae, "The new 2D DWG format support and the collaborative markup ability were born in response to beta user demand. Our goal with 3Dfile.io has been to provide the simplest way to share CAD and 3D models online for designers and engineers and 2D CAD users can not be left out. In lots of cases, engineers still rely both on 2D and 3D data to complete design projects. Super-simple 3D file sharing is dramatically supplemented by super-simple 2D drawing sharing. "

2D DWG and DXF vector drawings are supported on all major platforms, including PC, Mac, Android OS and iOS (iPad/iPhone). Users can now upload 2D drawing files as well as part and assembly files using 3Dfile.io's iconic "Drop 3D files here." interface. A link to the uploaded files is instantly created and can be shared with anyone. Visitors can view the uploaded 2D and 3D CAD online directly in their web browser.

Other enhancements to 3Dfile.io coinciding with the release announcement focus on more control and the greater flexibility with the uploaded data.

*Enabling or disabling download of original files

*Password protection when sharing models with others

*Embed the model viewer in Blogs or other Web pages.

3D CAD supported in 3Dfile.io includes native CAD formats such as Inventor, SolidWorks, Pro/E (Creo), NX and CATIA as well as non-native formats such as a IGES, STEP, JT, STL and OBJ.

Users looking for more capability are recommended to try using TeamPlatform (www.teamplatform.com) which provides a complete online collaboration platform for design and engineering companies. For designers and manufacturers new to the cloud-based on-demand services, 3Dfile.io is the perfect introduction. 3Dfile.io showcases how the cloud solutions can help them work effectively with almost zero upfront costs."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
