BROOMFIELD -- Spatial Corp, a leading provider of 3D software development toolkits (SDKs) for design, manufacturing, and engineering solutions, and a subsidiary of Dassault Systèmes, today announced the release of an easy-to-use, universal 3D modeling web viewer.Spatial_logoUSE

Spatial said the viewer leverages the power of its 3D InterOp suite to provide web-based access to CAD files. Users have the ability to access and view a wide range of industry-standard CAD formats on any browser-compatible device, the company said.

Spatial said it is uniquely positioned to leverage its 3D modeling expertise to deliver precise renderings of 3D data models from AEC/BIM, CAD, CAE, CAM, CMM, EDA, robotics, and more.

Being deployed to the cloud across multiple continents, Spatial said its 3D viewer provides the fastest performance possible to users globally.

The web-enabled 3D service ensures designs and data can be used across CAD and PLM systems, Spatial said, allowing for controlled access to only a select set of information within a file, such as visual rendering.

This controlled granularity not only protects data by sharing only the necessary information, but also reduces file sizes, ultimately increasing performance, the company said.

“Spatial has worked diligently to deliver a simple, easy-to-use interface for users to be able to load their 3D models and go,” said Brian Rohde, Spatial’s senior product manager responsible for online and visualization.

“During the development of this viewer, we focused on best practices to ensure we delivered the best performance possible. As a result, large models can be viewed in a matter of seconds.”

By utilizing WebGL for rendering 3D graphics, Spatial said its web viewer can provide access to any device that supports modern web browsers, including powerful capabilities, such as shading, and lighting with excellent performance -- even on mobile devices.
